As we enter our summer term the children will be focusing on their science unit of plants. Children will be learning all about different parts of a plant, what they need to survive, and be able to name some of the common types of trees. We hope to provide the children with lots of hands-on experiences planting in the flowerbeds at LRR.
Linking our learning in English to our topic, we will be focusing on the text ‘The Green Ship’, a beautifully illustrated text by Quintin Blake. The children will be focusing on their formal, creative writing and really focus on building up the imagery in their writing.
In Art, we will be learning and practicing our painting skills with a particular focus on technique and colour mixing. We will be learning about the artist of Georgia O’Keefe.
In P.E we will be hoping to get outside into the playground as much as possible as we begin our unit on Games. We will also begin to practice certain skills needed for Sports Day in term 6.
