Spring 2


This half term in my Place in the World we have enjoyed exploring the theme ‘Investigating the Geography of our School’. We began the topic by exploring places around school. We then explored environments near school, including the Co-op and Fish Shop. Learners used directional language to plan routes around school and the local area.

Summer 1 2024


In Summer term 1 Shark class read the story "The treasure of Captain Frank." We explored a sensory tuff tray to introduce the story with a blue jelly sea around a biscuit and cake island. Learners dressed up as pirates and enjoyed exploring different settings in the story. The learners then made their own volcanoes using paper mâché and we made them erupt using vinegar and bicarbonate soda. We went on to write a postcard imagining we were on a desert island. 


We explored plants in our science topic and identified different types of plants and their similarities and differences. Learners enjoyed exploring fruit and vegetables donated to us grown on an allotment in Rugby. The learners used there senses to explore the vegetables focusing on the whole plant including roots and leaves. 


Shark explored many areas in maths and ended the half term exploring fractions focusing on making half of a shape. Learners were able to cut pizza and bread in half and then enjoy these for snack if they wished.
