Summer term is here!
As usual, there is a lot to look forward to in class 4, including writing our own myths and legends in literacy, creating Jewish-style artwork and learning all about their origins in art/DT, exploring the life-cycle of plants in science (including becoming gardeners ourselves!), discovering all about about the Shang Dynasty of China in history and even becoming architects in computing! We will also begin our swimming lessons at Edisford pool, which the children are very excited about.
The summer term brings lots of fun school events as well, such as Sports Day, our Class trip and the end of year production, so please keep coming back to check our page for information and more lovely photos of the children!
Don’t forget, our P.E days are Tuesday, swimming is on a Monday and our library day is also Monday.
Please keep coming back to have a look at photos of all the amazing activities the children get up to, as we love to share all of our fun and learning with you all!
