Wow! Can you believe it we are in the Summer term? Our last term here at Winscombe Primary. We are looking forward to so much this term with: learning our parts for the Year 5 and Year 6 production, showing off our great skills in the SATs, having a fun trip to go "Ten Pin Bowling" as a treat after SATs, our Residential Camp at Hooke Courte, Sports day and the Coronation Picnic to name a few things!!
We will also be studying " The Mystery of the Maya!" an Non - European History topic. We will producing so much creative art with this theme we have named a week as "Creative Arts Week!" We can't wait! Further information about our studies can be found in our topic web below.
How did we get here?
This term our theme is "How did we get here? We are looking at key turning points in British history from WW2 up until the present day. Our fun and exciting learning stems from finding out about different popular dances to how Amnesty International was created. We will also be visiting the Life Skills Centre in Bristol where we find out how to stay safe in different scenarios. Please see the topics web below where our curriculum is laid out in further detail.
Most of the time we will give the children a week to complete their homework. However, we will shorten the time as the year moves through so they are working towards their next stage in education. It will be shortened to four to three days complete time.
Monday - Reading records handed in for checking for home reads
Tuesday - English Comprehension homework return
Wednesday - Spelling test and investigation return
Thursday - Maths homework return
Visit from ‘Garden Organic's Master Composters’
On Thursday March 9th we were lucky enough to have a visit from the ‘Garden Organic's Master Composters’ who are volunteers who spend time promoting home composting in their local community. They led a whole school assembly followed by four workshops for Year 6 and our ECO Warriors.
Plants were planted, a wormery was explored, compost creatures were drawn and items for composting were sorted. It was both an engaging and informative afternoon which everyone thoroughly enjoyed.
Thanks must go out to all those involved in providing such a unique and exciting afternoon: Mater Composters - Johnny, Fin, Pauline and ECO Committee Members - Mrs Hardwick and Mrs Hancock (who is also our ECO Governor).
World Book Day 2023
Year 6 looked fabulous in all their costumes!
It was also a great opportunity to launch our new allotment area -The Peter Rabbit Garden
We used inspiration from the ‘Let’s Get Gardening’ book to create our own jam jar greenhouses to plant and bring on some herb pug plants ready to plant in our allotment bed.
Take a close look at the photos and you may even see Peter Rabbit hiding in each jar!
Full Steam Ahead !
