Summer term in the Juniors
From Wheels and Wings to Roald Dahl and Chocolate!
The Juniors have crammed a so much into the term already! SATs of course, but also some exciting topic work on the Railways, from the heyday of steam (some excellent trains built!) to a controversial debate on the controversial HS2 link. We became experts on electrical circuits and switches, too.
In English, our story writing skills resulted in some fabulous Adventure Stories! Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was our class text – some preferred the book, but all of us enjoyed watching the classic film as an end of half-term treat.
So far in the final, busy term of the year, we have: had a super visit from the Open Centre (food tasting and turban tying included!); carried out an investigation into chocolate melting (Yes we did get to taste the left over chocolate!) and learnt how the Mayans and Aztecs were the first to grow chocolate from cocoa beans.
Our second attempt at World Book Day saw some creative costumes, from Jo in the classic Little Women to Mr Stink. Yet to come this term, some persuasive adverts and Roald Dahl poetry… Not to forget transition days for Year 6s, Kingswood, our Leavers’ Service, Long Lane’s Got Talent…
Miss Wilson will be working with us again for the rest of the school year.
Here’s to another action-packed term. Mrs McManus
