Happy New Year! I hope you have had a great start to 2018.
This half term we will be studying the Amazon rainforest and our key topic questions are: 'Does it always rain in the rainforest?' and 'Who relied on the Amazon in the past?'
Below are some of the questions the Stingrays have asked, which will form the basis for our learning. Also attached is a copy of the spring newsletter and curriculum map.
We have now started our Reading Challenging and our creative homework project- which is to make a model of the rainforest strata. If you have any questions about these, please do ask.
Anderson Shelters Homework
Stingrays have been very busy creating an impressive range of model Anderson shelters for their World War II topic homework. The design ideas from the children have been truly innovative and the quality of their construction has been outstanding. The children have really enjoyed sharing their constructions with each other and participating in testing their shelters for strength and water resistance.
Thank you so much for supporting us with this challenging project; it has really enriched the children's understanding of the importance of Anderson shelters during World War II.
