Thomas Willingale School and Nursery

Summer Term



Welcome back to school, we hope you have all had a lovely Easter break!


This half term our new topic is Amazing Places and Spaces in the UK. In English we have been writing our own versions of Traction Man using our toilet roll character villains.


In Maths, we have been learning about volume and capacity. We learnt that capacity means the maximum amount a container can hold. We also learnt that volume means how much a container has in it. We used dried pasta to find out the capacity of different containers. We used the language empty, nearly empty, half full, nearly full and full to talk about the volume.  


In Geography, we have been looking at human and physical features in aerial photographs. We then labelled an aerial photograph of our own school and surroundings.


In Computing, we have been exploring a virtual Bee-Bot and programming buttons to make it move in various directions. 


Next week in maths, we will be learning to count in multiples of 2, 5 and 10.
