Welcome Back to Spring 2!

We hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable half-term break! We are all excited to welcome you back to school for the second half of the spring term. As always, we have some fantastic learning opportunities lined up for you this term.

English and History: Learning about Survivors and Ernest Shackleton

In our history lessons this term, we will be diving into the fascinating world of survivors and exploring the remarkable story of Ernest Shackleton. Get ready to embark on a journey through time as we learn about his extraordinary Antarctic expedition aboard the Endurance.

We will study the challenges Shackleton and his crew faced, their heroic perseverance, and the qualities that made them survivors. Through engaging lessons, discussions, and projects, we will gain a deeper understanding of resilience, teamwork, and the power of the human spirit.

Science: Electricity

In science, we will be exploring the captivating subject of electricity. We will unravel the mysteries behind circuits, switches, and conductors. Get ready to become budding electricians as we conduct exciting experiments and investigations.

Throughout the term, we will learn about the different components of an electrical circuit, the effects of altering voltage and resistance, and the importance of safety when working with electricity. This topic will definitely have sparks flying in class!

Keep Reading and Bring in Your Reading Record

We cannot stress enough the importance of reading in developing your knowledge, imagination, and language skills! Reading is an integral part of our curriculum, and we encourage all children to read for pleasure as well as for learning.

Remember to continue reading regularly at home and to bring your reading record to school every day. This allows us to monitor your progress, offer helpful recommendations, and celebrate your achievements. Let's keep those reading records filled with your exciting adventures through books!

We are looking forward to an enjoyable and productive spring 2 term. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
