I hope you had a relaxing Spring break whether in Beijing or elsewhere. It was lovely to catch up with some of you on Thursday at Pastries for Parents and it is wonderful to see the children back at school refreshed and enthusiastic ready for the Summer Term ahead. The corridors are already buzzing!
The term has got off to a great start with our latest MIT challenge - Building Curiosity - which you can read about in Miss McCarra’s article. KS2 topics for this term include: Year 3’s Active Planet where the children will be learning about the structure of the Earth as well as some of the wider issues related to natural disasters; Year 4 are investigating Communication Through the Ages which is very relevant in today’s fast changing technological world; Year 5 are looking at how the growth of population affects water as a shared resource in their Conservation and Rivers topic and last but not least Year 6 are exploring an extinct civilization from the west coast of Africa in their Kingdom of Benin topic.
There is a strong sporting emphasis this term with KS2 Sports Day next week and the FOBISIA games taking place during May. In contrast, towards the end of the term we have the Upper Key Stage 2 production to look forward to which will be an opportunity for Year 5 and 6 to show off their performance skills.
As always, we have an exciting and busy term ahead!
