Hello and welcome to STF 2 at Morriston Primary. Our theme this term is ‘Land Ahoy’.
Get ready to take to the high seas and set sail in search of treasure! This half term, we’ll look at boats, visit the seaside and the life boat station to find out about boats and ships of all shapes and sizes. We’ll write about our visit, read books, investigate amazing sea rescues and write postcards. Our science skills will help us to understand how boats float and we’ll design and make model ships using a variety of materials. We’ll look at paintings of boats and draw detailed pictures of our own. Our map reading skills will help us to identify different seas and oceans, and we’ll learn about famous sea explorers. Stories of pirates will inspire us to make pirate flags, treasure maps and fact files. We’ll even find out how to talk and sing like a pirate!
We will have the opportunity to visit the local beaches and engage in lots of interesting cross curricular activities.
We will also be carrying out all our usually daily activities, e.g. Read Write Inc, numeracy skills. Reading activities are carried out everyday.
Please can you ensure that your child has their PE kits with them in school everyday as pupils join their peers for PE on various days. PE. kits will be sent home at the end of each term. Pupils will be swimming every Tuesday during the summer term.
The cost of fruit is 25p per day, please pay on Squid. We ask for a contribution of £5.00 per term towards snacks and cooking.
Remember we have an open door policy, please pop in and see me if you have any questions. Thank you for your continued support.
