Waterbird Wonders

We're All Wonders by R.J. Palacio

Our Topic for the Summer term is based around the children's book 'We're all Wonders' looking at how each of us are unique and special. 

The children will be researching famous people in history who have each made a difference to the world that we live in today. We have already enjoyed finding out about Rosa Parks and the stand that she made against prejudice because of the colour of her skin. 

We will be finding out about the many different religions of the world, their places of worship, important artefacts and festivals that they celebrate. 

Our science topics are based on animals, including humans, researching information about their skeletons, teeth, muscles and digestive systems. 

 

Remember to keep checking our class page to keep updated on what is happening. Ask your grown up to keep regularly checking their email for updates from school.

Well done to all those children who took part in our ‘Speak Out, Stay Safe’ competition during  spring term.  We received an astonishing 42 fantastic entres.  Mrs Sweeney and Mrs Byrne had a really tricky job choosijg the best entry, but after much deliberation, the winner was picked! 

Well done to Mia McCabe from Swans class for her brilliant leaflet. 

Both Mrs Sweeney and Mrs Byrne felt that Mia's entry showed all three of the key elements really clearly and included some beautiful presentation.  Mia was presented with the crocheted polar bear as the winning prize!

 

Winner  Mia McCabe

A polar bear word art has been prepared for every other entry. These can be collected from your class teacher when we return to school.  

 

Remember:

Speak out and be heard

What it means to be safe

Get help when you need it
