Welcome to Summer Term in Kites.

 

OK, so it’s not quite the term we envisaged; the pressure of SATs has been removed. However, restrictions are slowly being relaxed and fingers crossed will continue to do so. With this renewed hope we will make the most of the last term at Grayswood and in the words of Jon Bon Jovi, make sure the children leave in a ‘Blaze of Glory’!

 

Our new and final topic will be 'Villainous Victorians'. We will learn about Queen Victoria and her reign, about inventions and reforms and also about life for children during Victorian times.

 

In English, to inform the writing, the children will be following the main character from Street Child, a runaway, trapped in the Workhouse and desperate to escape. This is a brilliant and moving book, which examines issues of homelessness, injustice and survival through the eyes of an engaging character. The children will use this text to write and edit newspaper reports, diary entries and setting descriptions. Furthermore, in Topic, they will research, plan and write information texts about street children around the world.

 

Maths this term sees a focus on the areas we were unable to cover due to the second Lockdown, such as decimals and percentages. We will build on prior learning, embedding concepts and continue to develop the children’s problem and reasoning skills.

 

This is such a fun filled, busy term: we will be holding our Leavers Fair, performing an end of year play and a leavers assembly. We have a number of trips organised, including the residential to Hooke Court, the delayed trip to Gilbert’s White house, a leavers service and a visit to Chessington World of Adventures (if possible). So much is happening, so please do take a look at the Curriculum Overview to see the learning that will be taking place in more detail.

 

And finally, even though we do not have the pressure of SATs, we will continue with our hard work to ensure the children are ready and equipped for their new beginning at secondary school.
