Cedar class is a Key Stage 2 class with children from years 5 and 6. The class teacher is Mr Head and our teaching assistant is Mrs Asher.
This term in English we will be basing our literacy around Alfred Noyles poem ‘The Highwayman’ as well as ‘Letters from the Lighthouse’ a book by Emma Carroll.
In Science, our Summer topic is Earth and Space in which we will be learning all about the movement of the Earth in relation to other planets in our solar system, the moon and how the rotation of the Earth results in day and night. We are also very much looking forward to visits from our local STEM ambassador.
Our Computing and D&T units will also be based around Earth and Space as we will be programming Crumblebots and creating Mars Rovers.
In history, we will be learning about what life was like during the Tudor period and looking to see their influence in Suffolk and in PE, the Summer term is all about striking and fielding games such as cricket and rounders and athletics. Finally, in RSE, we will be learning about healthy relationships and changing me.
Our PE days are Monday and Tuesday.
