The Spring Term has been yet another productive one for Pine class. Through activities across the curriculum, the children have developed their learning attitudes and demonstrated commitment, confidence, curiosity, enthusiasm, independence and respect. One particular highlight has been the combined class trip with Maple class to Kimmeridge, visiting the fantastic 'Etches Collection'. We have loved our 'Earth and Space' topic and enjoyed extended home-learning projects about volcanoes and fossils, with some fantastic, creative models decorating the classroom.
On Thursday 29th March, we thoroughly enjoyed participating in the Easter Service at St. George's Church. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs Wollen, our Music Leader, for teaching us a wide variety of fantastic songs to celebrate this Christian religious festival.
Pine Class is looking forward to welcoming our new teacher, Mr Girling, and quickly helping him to settle into life at St. George's for the Summer Term. We have exciting history topics to look forward to in the Summer Term: 'Kings and Queens', followed by 'Ancient Egypt'. In English lessons, we will be studying traditional tales from our own and other cultures, such as fables and legends. In mathematics, we turn our attention to geometry, as well as continuing to reinforce number and times tables skills, whilst our science lessons will focus on materials. We will focus on our 'Healthy Me' PSCHE topic, both inside and outside of the classroom, by partaking in athletics and striking/field games in PE/Games lessons. 'Salvation' will be the next 'Understanding Christianity' unit studied. What a lot we have to pack in to the next few months!
