Half Term Information Spring 2 2023

Much of our English learning this half-term has been based around our geography topic of Rivers and mountains. The children really enjoyed ‘The Secret of Black Rock’ and produced some exciting alternative endings to the story. Our focus on comprehension and inference has continued in reading and included topic based texts.

In maths we have again covered broad areas of the curriculum including: perimeter of rectilinear shapes and fractions. We are now moving onto our unit of work on decimals which will continue into the summer term. 

The children have enjoyed learning about animal habitats and classification. We especially enjoyed our trip to nature reserve, where we found a large number of different species.

In RE the children have learnt about forgiveness and the Easter story

In PSHE we have been learning about healthy lifestyles culminating in Healthy lifestyle week where we made healthy flapjack and worked out with Tanzil TV. 

We had another successful half term swimming at St Neot’s Pool on Tuesday mornings. The children made fantastic progress. Back at school we have been working on rotation in gymnastics the children have produced some pleasing routines with spins, turns and twists.

Children’s comments about their learning:


Daniel – "I loved Cambourne Nature Reserve because I like seeing all of the creatures there."


Florence – "I like swimming because they really helped me learn how to swim."


Jack - "Loved swimming because it feels so nice in the water and learning with all my friends."


Leila - "It has been fun to learn about Van Gough and his ear. I liked doing pointillism it looked great."
