Swimming!! It starts next week! Your children will swim on Monday and Wednesday. On Tuesday they will have a regular PE lesson. This is because swimming is going to last longer (12 weeks instead of 6) to try and expose the children to the skills for a longer period hopefully leading to a stronger consolidation.
Please send your child to school on Monday with their swimming costume, a towel, goggles if needed and a swimming cap for children with hair longer than their shoulders.
We were so incredibly proud of the children last week at the wax museum. I’m sure you were as blown away as we were by the research skills, the presentation skills and the confidence that your saw from all of our children. Here are a few pictures from the wax museum and open classrooms.
Our new unit is all about light and sound. Here is the overview.
We kicked this unit off with a fun provocation in the theatre. We gathered together as a grade and experienced lots of different sounds and lights. We had to think about how they made us feel and what effect they had on us. Ask your child what sounds they heard.
We are looking forward to being scientists who explore questions and ideas in this UOI. Watch this space for what’s to come!
