Curriculum Highlights

This term, children will be learning about Dr Martin Luther King in history. In science, learning will focus on classification. In art, children will be studying the work of Edvard Heston, Edvard Munch as inspiration for their own pieces.
In computing, children will be preparing their yearbook pages, after which they will resume their learning on spreadsheets.
We have already begun rehearsals for our end-of-year production. Please continue to support your child in learning their words and the songs.
You can find out more information about the summer term learning by looking at the overviews and programmes of study on the website.
