Take a look at the ideas that the children have had for the topic.  

                Summer Term 2019


Welcome back after the Easter holidays.  This term our topic is:

                                             'Keen to be Green'  


The children have decided that as part of the topic they would like to take part in a litter pick of the local area.  They have written to Keep Wales Tidy to ask them for their help.  Watch this space for the photos. 


Homework this May half term is for children to design and make a waste monster.  They can use any materials from the home and it needs to be returned to school by Thursday 24th May where it will displayed in the classroom.  We look forward to seeing the monsters!!!


The children have asked if they can visit a recycling centre and so we have arranged a workshop to a local centre where they can see firsthand what happens to the materials from our homes. Letters will be sent home soon about the date.


In LLC lessons the children will be reading stories about the environment and recycling then writing mystery stories, letters and information posters. In Science and Technology the children will be finding out about night and day, phases of the moon and the water cycle. 


We had an amazing day yesterday.  We became crime scene investigators, in order to help us to write our crime reports next week in English for the class text 'Awful Auntie'

This week in Science we have become 'Habitat Detectives'. The children have enjoyed looking around the local environment to find and explore insects in their natural habitats as part of their learning about the seven characteristics of living things.
