Summer 2 Information

Welcome to Summer Term 2, 2022

This term the main topic that the children will be focusing on is 'How can we save the World? This topic will largely be based on geographical skills. The children will learn about global issues such as deforestation and plastic pollution as well as renewable and non-renewable sources of energy. They will gain an in depth understanding of the biomes of the world with a focus on rainforests.

In science we are working on the topics 'sound' and 'electricity'.

Our RE is an Understanding Christianity unit, answering the question 'When Jesus left, what was the impact of Pentecost?' in summer 1 and then moving onto a thematic unit answering the question 'How and why do people in Cornwall mark significant events in community life?' in Summer 2.

Below, you will find a range of information relating to what the children will be learning about this term and resources, to support the children’s learning. Of course, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via Dojo.

Many thanks, 

Miss K Charles

Our Class book
 
The book we are reading this term is called 'Song of the Dolphin boy' by Elizabeth Laird. It links nicely to our topic of 'How can we save the World' Here is a synopsis of it:
 
Finn has always been different, and in the tiny fishing village of Stromhead he sticks out like a sore thumb. Always told to keep away from the water, he's felt that something was missing until one day he dives in and finds that, swimming with the dolphins, he feels completely at home.

But his new friends are in danger of being injured by the rubbish that floats out into the water - and now a supermarket is going to release thousands of balloons that could drift out to sea and cause even more damage. Desperate to help the dolphins, Finn goes to the Lighthouse Crew, a group of kids who have always left Finn out. Will they be able to set aside their differences to save the dolphins? And what will Finn discover about his past along the way?
