Welcome to

Whissendine CE Primary School

Newsletter

This term (our final one together - can you believe?!) we will be embracing STEM learning.  After a starting focus on our RE topic of Jesus - an Inspirational Leader, we gain entry to the hallowed halls of ...

 

The Whissendine Institute of Technology (W.I.T. for short) 

 

As students of this illustrious establishment, we will be spending time, initially, on a science focus - Forces and Magnets - looking at what makes things move, stop and change direction or shape.  This will lead us into our second focus of engineering.  If we are going to investigate what forces make toy cars roll down a hill then we had better have a go at designing and building the cars to do the rolling!  Next will be technology.  We will be learning coding so that we can program those vehicles to travel to the exact point that we want them to.  Finally, and threaded through all of this new learning, will be out maths focus for the term - shape. 

 

In literacy we will be writing persuasive booklets to promote our village, Willston Snowdale, as a holiday destination.  French with Mrs Honorez will continue to be on Tuesday morning, Athletics and Yoga on Thursday afternoons and swimming on Friday morning - well, we have to stretch our bodies as well as our minds don't we? 

 

Mrs White and Mrs Redmond.
