The Summer term is underway with the children all beginning new topics. Year 3 will be studying the topic of Healthy Living which is Science focused. Year 4 Creatures Great and Small where the children will learn about the human body and lifecycles of animals. Year 5 will be studying two topics this term starting off with World War II. As part of this topic they will visit Normandy as their residential trip. Later in the term they will look at the Earth, Sun and Moon in their mini topic Infinity and Beyond! Year 6 have a very packed Summer term as they prepare for the SATs in May and the Year 6 production in July. The Year 6 topic is called Being Human during which the children will look at our senses, teeth and healthy eating, study the organs of the human body, drugs and alcohol and sex education. They will also have the chance to design their own breakfast cereal in DT. The Year 6 children will also have their residential visit in July to the PGL centre on the Isle of Wight.
We will also have our transition days this term and our final Day of Difference where we have a wide variety of experiences for the pupils. This year we will be having our biggest Day of Difference ever with over 420 pupils on site! There are photos of our previous Day of Differences and other school events in the Photo Gallery page. This has become an institution at QE and is a really excellent experience for the pupils. We strongly encourage parental support so please offer to help if you are able to spare the time.
Our regular inter-house competition will begin this term with the hugely successful Inter-House Rounders Tournament. I am sure it will be as keenly contested as ever and we are lucky to have such talented children at QE! We also have Sports Day and District Sports during the Summer term.
This year we have continued to increase our clubs using the Primary School PE and Sports funding we have received from the Government. We now have a very wide range of clubs for children to attend both before and after school so if you are interested please speak to the office. We are always looking to expand our offer of clubs so if you have any ideas on other clubs that could be offered, either before school, at lunchtimes or after school, please let us know.
We have a number of different events this term and our website is packed with really useful information so please take some time to look at the things we do. We constantly update our website to include more dates and information so please take a minute to review it again. There is a dedicated email address for you to send your feedback to and as we have said we would really value your suggestions.
The email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org, or please come and speak to me, your class teacher or the office staff.
We hope you enjoy our website and learn a little bit more about our fantastic school!
