Summer Term - in the first half term the children will be busy preparing for their SATs tests which begin on the 8th May. After that the children will be learning about the Romans, learning about the impact they had at the time and continuing to have on our society. We will also be learning about Islam and in Geography how Volcanoes are formed. Science will be studying light and how we see.
After half-term the children will take part in various programmes and projects such as the DARE project (learning about Drugs and Healthy lifestyle choices), Young Enterprise and Sex Education. We also have our residential to Boggle Hole in July to look forward to.
SAT's are over and we have started our new Geography topic, Yay! We are finding out about how the Earth is made and what causes volcanoes and earthquakes. We started by making and labelling our own models of Earth from plasticine.
Spring Term - Our topic for this term is, 'The English Civil War'. The children had a great time on their trip to the Civil War Museum, where we learned about the impact it had on the people of Newark. We also enjoyed learning about the legend of Prince Rupert and his amazing dog Boye. As part of our Topic work we have also walked into Newark and sketched buildings in the town that have been there since before the Civil War!
In Art we will be designing and making sculptures of King Charles, out of wire.
In science the children will be learning about electricity and how it works.
