Welcome to the Summer Term 2021! We can’t believe that we are approaching the end of another academic year and what a challenging year it has been! Nevertheless, our learning journey continues with a new Power of Reading book ‘Gregory Cool’, by Caroline Binch. The children have already been immersed in this touching story about a city boy Gregory who arrives in Tobago to visit relatives. So far, the children have researched information about Trinidad and Tobago, and made posters about it. They will continue to learn about geographical similarities and differences between the UK and this Caribbean country. In DT, the children will be able to use their imagination and creativity to design and make masks for the traditional Caribbean carnival. This story will also give us the chance to identify in our Science lessons that animals, including humans, need the right types and amounts of nutrition. The children will continue their learning challenges in other areas of the curriculum. In Maths, they will explore fractions by counting, comparing, adding and subtracting them. And how can we forget about the very exciting opportunity this term for all Year 3 children to have free violin lessons! After all, it’s good to have more than one string to your bow!
