Welcome Back to the Summer Term 2!
We can't believe that this year is nearly over and your little people will have completed their first year at Homefields Primary School. They have absolutely shone and made us all so proud with how much they have all achieved. Thank you for all your support at home.
So this term we are visiting "Under the Sea" with our mission to rescue the mermaids pearl. The children will become experts and find out about creatures under the sea. They will then share their knowledge and teach their friends. They will be learning how to write and follow directions with the Beebot robot. They will be making short animation films and writing amazing stories. We can't wait to show you what we have been up to on Dojo.
This term it is group 5's turn at forest school. If the weather is kind to us, parents will be invited in on Monday 8th July. If they have their own wellies they would like to keep at school for the next few weeks that will be fine.
Beanstalk competition - I know lot's of you (both children and adults) are excited about how tall their beanstalk has grown so far. We would like measurements in ( and pictures if possible) week beginning 15th July. We will then work out who has the tallest beanstalk with the children and award the prizes! Good luck for the next few week - they all count.

Our next topic is all about mini-beasts. This is the name we give to cover lots of different creatures such as insects with 6 legs as well as the creepy crawlies with lots of legs or no legs!
During this half term we will be going on bug hunts and doing lots of research to learn all about where these mini-beasts live, what they eat and how we can look after them.
Spring time means sunshine (hopefully) and new growth. The children will be doing lots of planting to grow flowers but also vegetables for our garden that they can look after. We will definitely be having lots of fun growing our very own beanstalk, which we will send home to look after. At the end of the Summer term we will have a competition to see who has grown the tallest beanstalk. Each year the children enjoy this challenge and luckily so far, nobody has found a giant at the top!
Today in class we decided to do a kind thing for our friend and make them a friendship bracelet. We asked them what colour they wanted and which colour beads they wanted. When we had finished we told them that "I have made this bracelet for you because you are my friend!" We then thought about what to say if someone gives us a gift. We all made sure that we said "Thank you!"
