Article 28 – You have the right to a good quality education. You should be encouraged to go to school to the highest level you can.

 All our learning evolves from trying to create an environment in which pupils can demonstrate the key characteristics of effective learning. All of our learning opportunities and activities seek to provide pupils with the opportunity to:

Play and explore – engagement with learning: 

-Finding out and exploring 

-Playing with what they know 

-Being willing to ‘have a go’ 

Active learning – motivation to learn: 

-Being involved and concentrating 

-Keeping trying 

-Enjoying achieving what they set out to do 

Creating and thinking critically – thinking about what they are learning: 

-Having their own ideas 

-Making links 

-Choosing ways to do things 

Welcome back to summer term 2.  We are looking forward to our topic all about Castles. We will be comparing shoe sizes and length of hair linked to fairy tale stories. Children will be sequencing time events such as Cinderella on the day of the ball. We will share non-fiction book about Castles, asking questions such as why were they built? who lived in them? What were peoples roles? etc Children will have the opportunity to take on the role of knights, kings, queens, princesses and other fairy tale characters. We will be writing lists and spells linked to Sleeping Beauty and when looking at Cinderella we will be writing invitations, a list of jobs, a menu ,story sequencing and much more. We will also be practicing for sports day on the 21st June and have our trip to Hunstanton and the sea life centre on the 11th July. 

Our RE topic is focused on friends and our world. Children have already listened to the creation story and started to think about and appreciate all life God created.
