Welcome to

Great Casterton CE Primary School

Summer Term 1

The Summer Term is always one of my favourites. It's a time when we all know each other really well, friendships are solid and everyone knows the rules and routines of the classroom. Hopefully the sun will shine as well, and we will be able to enjoy lots of play on the field. 

It's been a challenging year, but this term we are hoping to mix our bubble with the children in EYFS, which will help those children with their transition to Year 1, and also enable the present Year 1s to get to know their future classmates. I think all the children will also be glad of some new faces. I'm hoping that as we go through the term the year 2s will get to spend some time getting to know Mrs Petrie ready for their transition to year 3. 

Our topic this term is called Once Upon a Time, and it's all about traditional tales. We will be reading lots of stories, some which will already be familiar to the children and some which will be less familiar. We will use these stories to help us write our own. We will also be learning some geographical skills, including how to use maps, follow directions and having a go at making our own maps linked to our topic of fairy tales.  You can see what we plan to cover this term by looking at the overview and the Knowledge Organiser below.
