Welcome back! I hope you all had a restful October half term holidays and are ready to hit the ground running in the busy second half of the Autumn term. The countdown to Christmas has already begun and we have lots of lovely things planned before then, including our Jack and the Beanstalk pantomime at Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury on Thursday 7th December and our Christmas church service on Wednesday 13th December.
In the second half of the Autumn term we are studying India as a non-European comparison to the UK. We will be focusing on weather, climate and biomes and linking this to our Mantle of The Expert where we will become Travel Agents, planning exciting adventure holidays to the different areas of India.
This half term we will be studying Food Technology where we will be researching and making some Indian dishes.
In Science lessons this half term we will be learning about Electricity, including investigating the effect of voltage on the brightness of bulbs and volume of buzzers and using recognised symbols when representing simple circuits in diagrams.
Our timetabled PE lessons will be alternative Tuesdays and Thursdays , beginning on Tuesday the 7th November and Thursday 16th November. KS2 children are to bring their PE kits (shorts, t-shirt, trainers and jogging bottoms) to school and change in school, before PE, every week.
We are looking forward to a wonderful second half of the Autumn term. If you have any concerns, please know that my door is always open for a chat.
