We are swimming this term so please bring in your swimming costume and towel every Friday!

This term is all about food and the steps taken for food to reach our plates. Our inquiry statement this term is: People in Communities working together to keep us safe. To kick of our topic this term we reenacted an earthquake in our classrooms and discussed how people would work together to rebuild a community. We talked about responsibilities and how everyone could chip in to help even if it mean volunteering services. We will discover different communities in the world, how the government and religious groups help to keep us safe and what we can do to keep ourselves and others safe. Our trip this term will be to Horton Kirby Environment Centre which will look at how animals also work in communities and we will have a guest speaker from the RNLI. We hope the children will link their own general knowledge to the topics we will be learning.
This term we are learning about World Wide Waste. We are looking at how our choices affect the environment, for example food waste…
Pupils are given many high quality opportunities to develop their curiosity and creativity. They are encouraged to use their imagination, for example when thinking of ways to praise a friend, and are taught to respect the feelings and viewpoints of others.Ofsted
Pupils are engaged and motivated by the way teachers present and teach the well-planned curriculum. This not only ensures that good learning takes place but makes a strong contribution to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.Ofsted
Teaching assistants make a strong contribution to the good learning taking place, especially when pupils with special educational needs are taught in small groups outside the classroom. They work in very close partnership with teachers and bring an additional range of helpful skills and experiences into the classrooms.Ofsted
