A selection of some of our World Book Day costumes!
Overview of Spring 2
We certainly fit a lot in to just five weeks of the second half of Spring Term! Highlights include:
- World Book Day 2023, including reading with a special guest teacher; a live interactive reading workshop with Alesha Dixon; author Luke Temple in school to deliver reading workshop and book signing sessions and a live performance of The Secret Garden
- British Science Week, where the children have visited each KS2 class and taken part in four wonderful scientific investigations all focussing on the theme of Connections in Science
- A hands on, STEM focussed Robotics Workshop as part of British Science Week
- There have also been other activities for those who have taken part in specific events, including being part of the live Rocksteady Music Assembly to the school and parents and the finals of the Rowing Event that we had previously triumphed in last half term
In class, we have continued our work on Floodlands, focussing on speech writing as if we were the new leaders of the Eels Tribe as well as writing a newspaper report based on the apocalyptic events of the story. This theme of Disasters is cross-curricular with our Geography focus, where we have learnt about tsunamis, hurricanes and volcanoes respectively whilst in Science, our Evolution learning has continued to see our knowledge and skills enhanced further by the scientific learning of Charles Darwin. Finally, in Maths, our learning has seen us recap our fluency and reasoning of arithmetic, something that is very much the 'bread and butter' of our maths knowledge and skills. Please continue to hone in on these at home by completing the weekly MyMaths homework that is set.
