Handwriting in Years 5 and 6

We had a great trip to The Kingcombe Centre this week. This trip was planned as part of our Rivers focus in our Planet Earth topic. In class, the children have learnt about the features of rivers and vocabulary associated with them. During the visit, they discussed different habitats in the environment for a range of wildlife and experienced different sampling and surveying techniques in both the river and meadow envirovment; in the river, each child took part in kick sampling (random and targetted) and in the meadow, they did bush bashing, grass sweeping and undergrowth hunting. They then used identification charts to identify their findings. A great day was had by all!

Welcome back to the second Summer half term. We have lots of exciting units of work and trips to look forward to. Please read our curriculum letter below to find out more.
