This term the children will study biology for our topic ‘iDoctor’.  They will identify and name the main parts of the human circulatory system, and describe the functions of the heart, blood vessels and blood.  Also, children will recognise the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on the way their bodies function; describing the ways in which nutrients and water are transported within animals, including humans.

This term our new PSHCE / well-being program will begin.  The first core value covered is collaboration.  This is the ability to work constructively with others, and children will learn to negotiate, to resolve conflicts, and to support agreed solutions. In doing so, they will strengthen their sense of teamwork and realize where they lack certain skills; which they can later hone. This week will have a key focus on the value of friendship.


Collaboration, groups, teamwork, skills, friendship


Deze week staat natuurlijk in het teken van de citotoetsen!

Verder gaan we dieper in op poëzie en dichtkunst. We gaan verder  met “Raadgedichten”. Daarbij lezen we elke dag/week een nieuw gedicht, waarvan 1 woord ontbreekt. Samen filosoferen we over het woord dat mist.

We maken in Year 3-4 een start met dansen op gedichten. Bij year 5-6 gaan we beginnen met het schrijven van eigen gedichten aan de hand van volksverhalen.

Voor spelling oefenen we deze week nog even extra op de categorieën die aan bod komen tijdens de citotoetsen!
