Raughton Head C of E Primary School
We are all back at school after what seems to have been a very quick holiday!
As the weather is getting warmer, we are looking forward to lots of trips out and the start of summer sports, tennis, cricket, rounders and athletics. We are lucky to be able to provide after school club in each of these sports too.
In Class 1 our topic is paws, claws and whiskers...Soft fur, sharp claws and twitching whiskers. What’s your favourite animal? One that meows? One that barks? Or maybe one that scurries or slithers? From pets at home to animals in the zoo, let’s find out what animals like to eat and where they like to sleep. Do you know how to look after a rabbit? A cat? Or even a snake? Find out how the elephant got his trunk and how the rhinoceros got his leathery skin. Perhaps you know how the dog got his waggy tail? Can you make a food chain to show who eats who? Who is a herbivore and who is a carnivore? When a gaggle of mysterious pets arrive at the local pet shop, it’s up to you to take care of them. Feed them, clean them and discover their daily needs. After all that work, curl up and take a cat nap.
Class 2 is all about the coastline starting with a look at our local coastline at Mowbray we will teach children about the physical and human features of coastal regions across the United Kingdom, including a detailed exploration of the coastal town of Whitby, in Yorkshire. Hopefully we may even manage an overnight stay.
In Class 3 we will be studying Britain at war, teaching children about the causes, events and consequences of the First and Second World Wars, the influence of new inventions on warfare, how life in Great Britain was affected and the legacy of the wars in the post-war period. We will use this topic to visit local memorials and use local experts to study how Raughton Head was affected.
Another very busy half term ahead!
