Welcome to Summer Term in Kites 

 

Vile Victorians!

 

Our new and final topic this term will be ‘Vile Victorians’. We will be learning about Queen Victoria and her reign, about inventions and reforms and also about life for children during Victorian times. This exciting topic allows us to link our work across many subjects, providing a rich and engaging curriculum.

 

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 diary entries and setting descriptions. Furthermore, in Geography they will research, plan and write information texts about street children around the world.

 

Maths this term sees a focus on Geometry- Properties of Shape, Problem Solving, Statistics and Investigations. 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 our residential to Buddens Farm, a leavers service at the Cathedral in Guildford and a little extra trip at the end of term! 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.

 

We will continue to work hard to ensure the children are ready and equipped for their new beginning at secondary school and together, 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’!
