Wow! Cannot believe we are in the final term where has the year gone. Hope you all had a great Easter break and didn’t eat too much chocolate!
The students worked brilliantly last term and thoroughly enjoyed the topics on Natural Disasters and Transport; they produced some brilliant work and their ideas were quite imaginative. We all enjoyed World Book Day, the students looked great in their costumes and they had a great time presenting our story ‘Room on a Broom’ to the rest of KS3. This of course was followed by watching a live performance of the book at Kings Lynn Corn Exchange, in which going to the theatre was a first for a few of our youngsters. The students were very well behaved and we all enjoyed the performance including the staff!
Well moving onto this term, our topics are going to be Animals Habitats and Around the World in Eighty Days. In the first topic, we are going to explore different habitats that we have locally and around the world and learn about the animals that live in them. As part of this, we are going to be planning a trip to Sandringham on Thursday 11th May where they will explore the different microhabitats that a woodland area contains and the mini beasts that live there. In the second topic, we will be looking at different countries around the world where we will be exploring the location, weather, food, culture and leisure activities and comparing them to the UK.
In science, students will be looking at animals and humans; they will be studying the lifecycle, body parts, skeletons and muscles of animals and humans. In the second half students will be looking at the topic of Earth and Space.
In English, we are continuing to work on our reading, phonics, writing and spelling skills as well as looking at traditional tales, fairy tales, non-fiction, letters/postcards and recounts. In Maths, we will be working on capacity, money, place value, time, multiplication, and division.
We are also planning an extended day out on the Thursday 22nd June; please look out for this letter in your child’s diary in the next couple of weeks.
Once again if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact the team.
