Summer Term 2022
Citius, Altius, Fortius: Faster, Higher, Stronger
Big Question: What will be your legacy?
Welcome back to an exciting, action-packed Summer term. We hope that you all had a fantastic Easter break! The children have all returned refreshed and ready for their final term at primary school! Our new curriculum theme for the summer term is ‘Citius, Altius, Fortius’ which is an olympic motto for ‘Faster, Higher, Stronger’. There will be a focus on Ancient Greece and the Olympics. Our theme focuses on Ancient Greece, and we will be studying many aspects of what life was like in Ancient Greece. From politics to sport, medicine to art, we will find out just how many aspects of life as we know it have been influenced by Ancient Greek achievements and discoveries. Our Big Question is ‘What will be your legacy?

Autumn Term 2021 Shh Walls Have Ears
Our new curriculum topic SHH WALLS HAVE EARS is a study of World War 2 and its effect on Plymouth and our local area. This topic has a historical focus, as we uncover hidden war-time treasures that have been discovered in our local area. Also, it will delve into the secret world of codes and ciphers. We will also have a geography link, as we study the impact of the war on the whole world. In art, we will be inspired by the artist L.S Lowry.

Y6 Indoor Rowing
Y6 have had a fantastic morning learning how to use the indoor rowing machines and seeing how far they can row. After an initial safety input and demonstration about how to use the machines, all children had a practise on the machines. They were timed to see how far they could row in two minutes before getting an chance to beat this - a great personal challenge for them all. All the children performed admirably but we did have two winning boys and two winning girls:
Laylan = 427m
Oakley = 404m
Summer = 389m
Imogen = 385m
Well done everyone!
