Summer Term 2 2022

 

Ancient Egypt

 

We're continuing with our focus on Egypt for this half term, considering what and how we know about life so many thousands of years ago. We've also got our end of year production of 'Robin Hood', which I know you will enjoy! Look at our medium term plan below to see specific learning objectives...

 

Don't forget that swimming lessons start after half term. Our swimming days are Wednesday and Thursday and you will need to bring your swimming kit on those days. You will need to wear your PE kit on these days - if we cannot use the pool for some reason we'll be doing some athletics. Sports Day is Friday 1st July.

Finally back in our happiest place!

Summer Term 1 2022

 

Ancient Egypt

 

We're travelling back in time again, this time to Ancient Egypt and the Valley of the Kings! I know lots of you are excited about this topic and you won't be disappointed. We'll be learning all about mummification, hieroglyphics and how the pyramids were constructed without the use of machinery. We've also got a couple of additional special events next half term and lots of you are coming to sing at the O2 in London for 'Young Voices'. Phew! Have a look at our medium term plan below to see specific learning objectives...

 

Our PE days this half term will be Tuesday and Wednesday. Please come to school in your PE kits on these days.

Spring Term 2 2022

 

Brington and Beyond

 

This half term, we will be studying our local area from a historical perspective. We'll also be looking closely at the buildings and landscape around school. This means we will be out and about a lot in the next few weeks so make sure you always have a waterproof coat in school and keep those wellies on the rack!

 

Our PE days will be on Thursday and Friday this half term. Please come to school in your PE kit on these days.

During Spring Term 1, we will be exploring our local area from a geographical perspective. Let's get those maps out! We'll also be learning about forces and we've got some magical texts lined up for English lessons. Get ready for lots of walks and investigations in and around Brington...

 

Our PE days will remain the same until at least half term. Please come to school in your PE kit on Thursdays and Fridays.

Autumn Term 2 2021

The Ancient Greeks

 

The Kites have made an excellent start to their Ancient Greece topic! We've been to Athens for the day to take part in traditional crafts and a performance of comedies and tragedies, discovered loads about the gods and goddesses and started our new favourite fiction text, 'Who Let the Gods Out'. This coming half term will involve a virtual visit from the author of that story and a focus on the myths of the Ancient Greek people. Our medium term plan is attached below.

 

PE days in the second half of the Autumn Term will swap to a Thursday and Friday. Please send children to school in PE kits on those days, making sure hoodies and jumpers are clearly marked with their names.
