Summer Term 1

Scroll down to find pictures from Stump Cross Caverns.

We have a very exciting summer term coming up! Starting us off this half term in maths, we are moving onto learning how to find the perimeter of shapes and recapping our time knowledge! Over the holidays, we have been carrying out time activities to help us remember the difference between analogue and digital. In writing, our purpose this half term is to inform! We are going to be writing information texts based on experiences we have had - there may even be a trip on the cards! Now that spring has sprung and we are moving closer towards the summer time, our focus in science is 'Plants' where we will be watching and learning about how flowering plants grow and reproduce. Whilst continuing our volcanoes topic in geography from last half term, we will also be moving onto learning all about the Romans in history (one of our favourites!).

Our whole school focus this half term is 'Communicate' so there will also be some fun days planned to explore this.

To find out more information, please see our 'Summer Term Overview' below. You can also scroll further to view our 'Knowledge Organisers' for history and science, read our termly newsletter and see what we were learning about in the spring term.

Stump Cross Caverns

This half term we enjoyed a fantastic trip exploring Stump Cross Caverns to support our geography learning, and our science topic 'Rocks and Soils'. 

We learned all about how 350 million years ago, the Yorkshire Dales was situated under a tropical ocean located on the equator. The caves were found by lead miners in the 1860's who would charge members of the public 1 shilling to enter the caves!

Slide show 2 coming soon!

Den Building

Exploring the Outdoors!


We had the BEST time at our den building workshop, where we applied our excellent team working skills to perfect a den big enough to shield our whole team from extreme weather conditions! We were resilient, resourceful, responsible and reflective and were experts in the end! What a great day.
