Spring Term


We are looking forward to welcoming the children back after the Christmas break. We have an exciting term planned, exploring our 'Fells' and Builders and Materials' topics. 


We will be exploring our wonderful local area and some significant people linked to the Lake District, Alfred Wainwright and Beatrix Potter.We are looking forward to our visit from the Mountain Rescue to help us understand how to be prepared and safe when exploring our local area.  We will be going on our own adventures up Orrest Head and Brantfell to put our learning into action. 


In Science, we will be learning about materials and investigating how they are suited to different purposes. We will enjoy the Traction Man stories, writing our own adventure stories and designing outfits for Traction Man, thinking about materials and their uses. 


In addition to learning about significant people from our local area, in History, we will finding out what happened during the Great Fire of London. We hope that Windermere Fire and Rescue Team will visit us to talk about fire safety and how being a Fire fighter would have been different in 1666.


In RE, we will think about belonging, learning about baptism and signs and symbols of Christianity and other religions. It is lovely to think of all of the groups that the children belong to.
