Summer Term 1
A TASTE OF ITALY
This half term we will be studying Italy; looking at it's physical geography and what the different areas have to offer tourists to the country. We will be exploring a range of famous landmarks and writing persuasive texts to encourage visitors to them.
Our art is also connected to our Italian theme, with learning how to draw self portraits and then adding them in to a watercolour painting of an Italian landmark to create a 'selfie'.
Our Guided Reading text this term is Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo which will also connect with both persuasive and diary writing in English.
This term in Listen to Me we are learning to play our final instrument of the year - the ukulele!
Mrs Prest will be back in on Thursday mornings for our music lessons and the end of term concert is booked in for Thursday 14th July at 10am.
Spring Term 2
In geography this half term we continue to learn about volcanoes and other natural disasters. We will be researching a variety of different volcanoes around the world, learning about the dangers and benefits of living in a volcanic area and the work of volcanologists.
In science we are studying how we classify animals and investigating which animals we have living in our school environment.
Art this half term:
Meet William Morris - we will be investigating his groundbreaking work in repeating patterns and creating our own printed sheets.
Our R.E. sees us examining the meaning and significance of rituals in our lives and with Easter approaching, the significance of the rituals and symbolisim of the Paschal Candle.

THE BOLD AND THE BRAVE
Were the Anglo Saxons the ruin of Britain?
This term we will explore where the invading troops came from and where they settled in Britain, how the Anglo-Saxons influenced the English language and a look at Anglo-Saxon life - a typical village, jobs and houses and the roles that the children might have had.
They will think about and discuss their Religion and the gods they worshipped until their conversion to Christianity.
Listen To Me lessons
On Thursday mornings we have a teacher from Hampshire Music Service come in to teach us - over the year we will be able to play three different instruments!
