Science 

Evolution and Inheritance will be our topic for Summer 2. We will look at how fossils form, what variation and selective breeding is, and how animals and humans adapt. 

Geography 

In geography we will be looking at micro-climates around the world, before exploring micro-climates in our local area. 

History 

Continuing with looking at how London has changed through the years, we will be looking at key figures including Millicent Fawcett and Princess Sophia Duleep Singh. We will also be exploring the Black Power Movement as well as if life was vile for London Victorians.

Art 

In Art this half-term we will be thinking about textiles and will be exploring both the Batik technique, and a variety of stitches.

PSHE 

In PSHE, we will be looking at changes we go through during puberty, hygiene, what it means to be a certain gender, the stages of reproduction and dealing with change.  

PE 

During the summer term we will be continuing to focus on athletics, building up to sports day at the end of the term.  

Music 

This will be the first half-term of music taught in school, so we will revise the learning that has been set this year.  

DT 

In DT we will work on a project relating to bird houses. 

 

How can I help at home? 

One of the key ways every parent can help is to ensure that your child is at school every day and on time. Other than this, the main way you can help is by ensuring that your child reads every day, for at least 30- minutes – this can be with you, or on their own, but it is the most effective way of ensuring that your child progresses and learns outside of school. Practicing times tables frequently is vital. 

Children have logins for Times Tables Rock Stars, Literacy Planet and Purple Mash– please encourage them to use this frequently, as it will really help with their quick recall of mathematical facts. 

If you have any questions, please talk to Miss Simmons, Mr Griffin or Miss Field or you can arrange a meeting via Zoom. 

Thanks, 

Miss Simmons, Mr Griffin, and Miss Field
