Trip to Salisbury.
A quick reminder that we will be leaving the school at 9 am and will return to the school about 3.30pm.
You will need to bring your child to school promptly for 8.40 am. Doors will be open from 8:35am.
The children will need a backpack with the following items:
-A packed lunch
-A hat (if sunny, we will be outside most of the day!)
The children must wear school uniform but need to wear comfortable shoes and a waterproof coat (just in case).
See you all tomorrow for a fantastic day!
Why is Salisbury a great place to live?
Dear parents and guardians,
Rhinos class and I would greatly appreciate having an extra pair of ears once a week! If you are willing to come and listen to some of our fantastic readers on a weekly basis and have a DBS check please would you contact Mrs Roberts at reception or myself.
If you do not have a DBS check but would be interested, then please speak to Mrs Roberts.
Thank you in advance,
Where would you build a city?
Rhinos will be using geographical enquiry to research some of Europe's famous cities. We will be answering the question 'where would you build a city?' by firstly developing, planning and evaluating the similarities and physical differences between cities and villages.
Our focus text in English this term is 'Wolf Brother' by Michelle Paver. We will be looking in-depth at the text and exploring the story structure and specific extracts to extend our own learning and apply this in our writing.
Why should gun powder, treason and plot never be forgotten?
Our overall curriculum topic for this term is ‘Why should gun powder, treason and plot never be forgotten?’ This will be an exciting History topic where the children can build upon their previous learning and delve into the restoration following the armed conflicts and political machinations that took place between Parliamentarians and Royalists!
Prepare yourself Rhinos for a Parliamentary debate that will go live to our class page!
