3 Mrs Turner
What a beautiful day to visit a coastline!
Year 3 boarded the train at Derby Road Station for Felixstowe. While we waited for our train to arrive we counted the containers carried by the huge freight trains. We also noticed that the train tracks were parallel and so were the sleepers!
From Felixstowe station we walked through the side roads and finally ahead of us was the beach! We noticed the horizon where the sky meats the land or in this case the sea.
Having walked along the promenade, we then searched the beach for things on our scavenger hunt list. Things we needed to find were a smooth pebble, a feather, something old (not Mrs Turner!) something that shouldn't be on a beach and something a fisherman has lost. It was lots of fun and the children found some wonderful things.
Before we left the beach we learnt how to stack pebbles and created some beach art.

Please remove ear-rings or provide tape to cover them, thank you
Summer term curriculum.
We have arranged the curriculum into topic areas this year rather than trying to cover each subject every week. Feedback from our pupils tells us they find learning more enjoyable and that they can see links between the different curriculum areas more easily.
Our topic areas for this half term are:
HISTORY - Local history including The Gainsborough Estate and Ipswich parks (We'll be visiting Holywells Park in late May)
SCIENCE - The life cycle of flowering plants
Light, shadows and sun safety
GEOGRAPHY - Coastlines (With a planned visit to Felixstowe in June)
Reading at least 3 times a week at home.
