Mamma Mia!

A warm welcome to the Summer Term. Excellently timed, we will be imagining ourselves in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea as we explore our new topic - Italy. Children will be kick starting the term with another theme day as we board the 'Wrawby Airways' on our flight to Italy. Children will have the chance to come dressed as artists as we celebrate all things Italian. From language to geography, and culture to food, children will be given an insight into life in a number of the Italian cities. Fingers crossed the sun begins to shine here in Wrawby and we can embark on another exciting adventure here in the Flamingo classroom.



The Matchbox Diary

In English children will be exploring creative writing through the stimulus of a beautiful story ‘The Matchbox Diary’ by Paul Fleischman. This is the story of a man who reflects on his early life with his great-granddaughter about how he found an inventive way of keeping a diary by preserving objects that were reminders of significant times in a series of matchboxes. The story of a family's early twentieth century migration from Italy to America unfolds as each object is revealed and examined. Children will have the opportunity to write their own story in the same dialogic style as Fleischman, about their own matchbox item and then create an illustrated book version in which they can share with other children in school.


As a school we are working hard to make the teaching of Maths as visual and practical as possible. We are aiming to ensure children become fluent in the fundamentals of Maths through the use of as many manipulatives as possible. It is important that children are able to reason mathematically by using the correct vocabulary and apply this to solving problems. This is a particular area that Flamingo class are continuously working on; consolidating our understanding of number facts and making that transition of being able to apply this knowledge to the skill of solving calculations.
