As geographers we will be  finding out about seaside areas and their geographical features. We will locate them on maps and learn about and locate the parts of the UK – England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

As scientists we will look at different materials and their properties. We will ask and answer questions such as “Why is a spade not made of chocolate?”!

As Historians we will be comparing seaside holidays now and in the past, looking at similarities and differences.

We are looking forward to our ‘Seaside Workshop Day’ on 4th July when we will learn lots about the history of seaside holidays, be entertained with a ‘Punch and Judy’ Show and use our art and design skills to make lots of fun things.

We will continue working on our ‘School Health Award’ by taking part in activities linked to ‘National Smile Month’. Don’t forget to bring your completed diaries to school. There will be an assembly to celebrate and receive a certificate.


As writers this half term we will be recapping everything we have learnt this year and assessing our own and other’s writing to help improve and reach our targets. We will continue practicing spellings of words with different suffixes (including rules). We will develop our stamina for writing:

  • Book Reviews
  • Seaside Stories
  • Nonfiction – captions, eye witness accounts


As mathematicians we will:

Choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure length/height in any direction (m/cm) in Athletics and temperature (°C) and rainfall when recording the weather. 

Use data handling to represent the above findings on block graphs.

Consolidate our skills of number, money, calculation, reasoning and problem solving using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
