Summer Term Topic - 'Our Place'
We are the oldest class in the school (years 5 and 6). Our teachers are Miss Buckle and Mrs Thompson, our Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Harding, Mrs Preston and Mrs Tipper.
This half term our topic is 'Our Place'.
This is a science themed topic. We are going to be researching how plants grow and what is vital for their survival.
In English we are reading The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. We will be exploring this classic novel and then producing lots of writing related to the book.
In Maths, we are following the Maths Mastery approach and are learning about pie charts, proportion and ratio.
As part of our previous topic we visited the Cambridge Botanical Gardens to look at how plants have evolved and the current work involved in plant research. We had a fantastic day exploring all of the different plants that they have there.
