Welcome back! We hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and that the children have returned to school refreshed and ready for all the fabulous learning that term 3 has to offer!
Our topic this term is Wonderful Water!Through this topic we will be learning all about water and our world. From studying the location and distribution of water around the world to following the journey of a river, the children will develop their scientific and geographic knowledge. In art and DT, the children will be investigating boats and bridges. Water will seep into every element of our curriculum this term!
In term 2 we were lucky to welcome Ilusion Flamenca into school. Ilusion Flamenca are a Flamenco Dance Company based in London who provide workshops for schools. We welcomed Dave and Lola, a guitarist and dancer, who led a fabulous series of workshops that introduced the Year 3 and 4 children to the world of Spanish dancing. They learnt some Spanish vocabulary, a little about the history of Flamenco dancing and got to try out some of the steps themselves.
We are signed up with several learning websites which have a range of games and activities to practice skills learned in class or even develop new skills. They can be accessed at home.
Purple Mash has lots of different activities for a variety of different subjects.
Sumdog is a website that has lots of games to practice number skills. We are also entering a competition starting this Friday!
Also, remember to check out Literacy Planet for games and activities to practice your spelling. Who will be top of the leader board this week?

Thanks for inviting me to do a story session with your school. I found the whole experience very rewarding as both children, and teachers were open to engage with me, and participated in listening to the stories, dressing up, singing and dancing.

I can’t wait to come back and work with the children and staff in the future. During every session the children were exceptional and a real credit to the school.
