Half Term Information Spring 2 2024

Our main topic - South America – really immersed the children in their learning this half term. ‘The Great Kapok Tree’ by Lynne Cherry has been our core text, which provided the children with an insight into the importance of the Amazon Rainforest. A persuasive letter, non-chronological report, and poems are some of the writing the children produced, inspired by the story.  

Our main focus this half term has been on our amazing ‘Go for Goal’ production, linked to our South American topic. The story centres on the history of the world cup, involving an array of colour characters. The children have worked diligently to create a truly memorable production.

In maths we have continued following the Power Maths scheme and have covered the relationship between fractions, decimals and percentages. The children have particularly enjoyed Spanish, taught by a specialist foreign language teacher, learning about lifecycles and the Easter story in RE.

Children’s comments about their learning:


Isobel “In science we dissected eggs, I was surprised by what they looked like inside.”


Anaya: “In Dance, we created our own football themed dances which we used in our production.”


Lexi: “Art is one of my favourite subjects, I like learning about different artists.”


Ben: “I found the poetry and books we looked at in English this half term very interesting.”


“The coach from Cambridge United talked to us all about being a journalist and writing match reports, we got to play football as well.” Hamza
