Summer Term 1
 
Welcome to Northcott Class!
 
Our topic this term is Sow, Grow and Farm, which includes a geographical investigation into land use in the UK, a scientific study of plants, a look at the role of the allotment throughout British history and an art focus on 'still life'. We will also be doing lots of planting and growing with Sophie from Relax Kids.
 
In English, we're continuing to develop our 'sentence stacking' skills, initially by creating speeches on refugees. In Maths, we're finishing off our multiplication and division learning before moving onto fractions.
 
Our PE day is Wednesday, so please make sure you wear your PE kit into school on that day.
 
SWIMMING - we will be starting our swimming sessions at Splash on Tuesday 4th May.  We will be going every day for two weeks which is a fabulous opportunity. Children will need to wear their swimming things under their school uniform please.
 
Attached below is some more information about our Sow, Grow and Farm topic, plus some optional home learning activities you could complete on the topic.
