Wingham Primary School

Learning together, we grow kind hearts and healthy minds

Term 6

We have continued learning about our question, “What makes Britain great?”  This last term has gone by so quickly but we have packed in lots of great learning. We have focussed on Roald Dahl in literacy and have looked at three of his books as well as learning lots of facts about Roald.  We loved going to see Charlie and the Chocolate factory at the Marlowe in the last week of last term. We made some amazing marvellous medicines which resulted in some great instruction writing and lots of discussion about what would happen to you if you drank it.   When we looked at The Twits, we made up some very nasty tricks that Mr and Mrs Twit could do on each other.

Maths has been about statistics and position and direction. Dancing to the Cha Cha slide has been the highlight of our maths lessons and it has really helped with our left and right positions.  

We finished off our topic by using our DT skills to design our own sandwich fillings.  We are going to end the term with a Great British Tea!

In computing we learnt all about the ISS and how they communicate via computers.  We loved finding out about the life of astronauts and we even got to try some freeze dried astronaut food!

We had lots of fun activities during Champions week. We loved our Bounce sessions but learning to skateboard was the most popular event of the week. The week ended with a hot, fun sports day and picnic.  Well done everyone for taking part.  Georgia and Milo were our fastest runners!

In our art lessons we have looked at British illustrators.  We looked closely at Quentin Blake’s illustrations in Roald Dahl’s books and drew and painted in the same style.

In forest school we made disgusting marvellous medicines and made Mr Twit’s beard using natural resources to name a few of our fun outdoor activities. We also made our Dad’s faces out of natural materials to celebrate Father’s day.

At the end of last term we had the grandparents in and the children loved singing them a song and sharing our art work of them.


What a fabulous year it has been!
