Summer Term

Summer Term 1st Half


This half term, we have looked at the model text “The Sword in the Stone” and used this to write our own finding tale. Lots of the children continued with the magical theme and wrote a story about a wand which had gone missing.


We continued our learning about place value in maths, with a strong focus on subtraction. At the end of the half term, we started learning how to count in 2’s and 10’s. The children picked this up really quickly and were very enthusiastic.


The children worked really hard in phonics as we recapped our previous learning of phase 3 and 5 sounds and longer, polysyllabic words from phase 4.


In history and geography, we learnt about the parts of a castle and discussed what kind of physical features would be the best for building a castle. The children were passionate about the castle being built on a hill and the proximity of water to ensure the castle was safe from invasions.


Finally, we celebrated the last day with a picnic on the field to commemorate the Queen’s platinum jubilee. The children dressed in red, white and blue and had a fabulous time learning about the queen. They were well behaved during the picnic and some even enjoyed sitting with their younger and older siblings and relatives.
