‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Summer Term A

Week 3

In geography this week, the children discovered that Florida is a peninsula. They learned what a peninsula is and identified some of the others around the world. In English, we finally found out what a seawig is, before the children designed and made their own. We enjoyed our coronation celebrations including making crowns, creating some fantastic artwork, enjoying ice cream on the field and singing the national anthem together in the school hall! The children also learned about significant British monarchs throughout history.

Week 2

In maths this week, we have been learning about the denominator of non-unit fractions. The children learned a tricky rule, that when the numerator is the same, the bigger the denominator, the smaller the fraction. In Geography, the children looked at where visitors to The Magic Kingdom originated from, and thought about why quality of life in different countries might affect this. In PE, we continued tennis and practised serving the ball.

Week 1

Welcome back! We hope you’ve all enjoyed the Easter break. The children have worked very hard in their first week back. We looked at perimeter in maths and started our new book ‘Oliver and the Seawigs’ in English. The children had to think about what they would put in their backpack if they were explorers, and write a note from Oliver to mum and dad explaining where he had gone. Our geography topic this half term is all about the Sunshine State, Florida. We looked at The Magic Kingdom, and the children had to plot a route around the theme park, making sure they visited certain places on the way. They also learned about time zones, and found out that the USA has six different time zones! In PE, we started tennis and in Art we began to learn about Pointillism.
