Spring 2022

For National Science Week this week, Owls have been learning about 'air resistance'. As part of this investigation, they have been making and flying their own paper aeroplanes. We are investigating which aeroplane design is more aerodynamic. It is also important to ensure the wing size is sufficient the keep the plane up in the air for longer.

Dear Families, 


Happy new year to you all! Hopefully, you've had a cheerful, relaxing time over the Christmas break. However, it is definitely good to finally be back at school and back to learning in this new (and hopefully healthy) year. 


The first term of 2022 we will hit the ground running, catching up on the time missed at the back end of 2021. Our daily lessons include maths (plus mental maths), SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) and writing, whole class reading. We will also be studying music, science, ICT, Spanish, Art/DT, PE and RE. See details below. 


Maths: Multiplication and Division / Measurement: Length and Perimeter / Statistics

Writing: Balanced Argument (Discussion) and Recount (newspaper report)

SPaG: Adverbs / Adverbial Phrases / Formal vs Informal Language / Conjunctions

Whole Class Reading: The Explorer, Katherine Rundell

Science: Electricity

PE: Gymnastics / Cricket

Music: Singing in a round

Spanish: Phonics

ICT: Programming

RE: Islam


A new term = a new topic which is: 'Extreme Weather' 


We will be learning about hurricanes/tornadoes, flooding, heatwave/drought and other extreme weather conditions that cause havoc and harm to our environment. We will explore the long term effects that weather has on communities, habitats and our earth. We will also explore what we (humans) have done to cause global warming and climate change as well as what we could do to reduce it. 


Things to remember: 


Water bottle / PE kit (bring in before Thursday, take it home on Friday) / a coat


Tuesday: Forest School (bring kit in bag - dress at school)

Wednesday: Mrs Cooper teaching

Thursday: PE (gymnastics)*

Friday: PE (cricket)* / Bring in reading records 


Kind regards, 


Mrs Durman, Mrs Cooper and Miss Kogel x
