Summer Term Topic: Fish and Ships

This term we will be learning all about life above and below the sea. We will be looking closely at different animals under the sea and their habitats. We will be visiting SS Great Britain to learn about ships and to find out what life was like onboard.


Using Purplemash we will be learning about programming using 2Go and 2Code. We will be practising our typing and mouse control skills. For a Purplemash log in please ask your class teacher.


The children frequently access Bugclub and IDL in class to help support their reading and spelling skills. Please speak to your class teacher if you are unsure of your log in's for either of these.


Link to our class via Class Dojo to keep tabs on what's happening in class and communicate directly with us! Ask for a code to sign up if you do not have one.
