Term 5

This term our topic is SPLASH!


We will be exploring and investigating water through Art and Science experiments, attempting to answer the questions How much rain falls in one week and How quickly does ice melt?


In Literacy we are starting the term looking at poetry, writing and performing our own poems, before moving on to stories about The Lighthouse Keeper by Rhonda and David Armitage. We will then finish up with two weeks on report writing about some of the science experiments we have performed. 


For our DT this term, we are going to design and make zipwire baskets, just like the one in The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch. 


As Historians, we will be learning about the history of Lighthouses, Grace Darling and the start of the RNLI.


In Maths, we will the learning more about addition and subtraction as well as place value of numbers to 20 (R) and 100 (Yr1). We will also learn about position and directions; very important skills for a sailor!


PE this term is on Friday. Please come to school in your PE Kits.

Home Learning 




I love cooking and creating things. Try getting your child to help you when you're cooking. Here are a few recipes you could follow though, if you want to:






Cookies: (I like adding more chocolate chips to this one)

Bread Rolls:

Fruit Salad: (you don't have to stick to those fruits, it can be anything)
