What a fantastic Spring Term!
The children thoroughly enjoyed their learning, particularly finding out about changes of state in Science and exploring line, tone and colour in Art. They produced some brilliant landscapes, based on the works of impressionist painter Joseph Turner, and enjoyed being outdoors overlooking the valley. The weather was kind to us that day!
Summer Term offers us the opportunity for two school visits. The first one is the re-arranged trip to Swanage Pier with the additional opportunity, on this occasion, to visit the Swanage Museum as part of our ‘History of Tourism in Swanage’ topic. The second visit is to Leeson House, where the children will be learning the Geography skills of orienteering by exploring the hills of Langton Matravers. Let’s hope the weather is good for both visits! I shall be writing to parents for adult helpers on these visits, so if you would like the opportunity to learn with your children, your help would be very much appreciated.
June also brings the newly devised Year 4 Multiplication Tests. With the introduction of the Knights of the Timestables program, re-enforced by the Timestables.co.uk website, the Year 4 children will be really prepared for this test and your support in helping them revise their times tables is very much appreciated.
Year 5 have had an especially terrific year and I am really looking forward to final preparations for their transition to Year 6. Thank you once again for all your support with home learning, reading and times tables practice. It is very much appreciated!
