Context for Learning

Our context for learning this half term is Wriggle and Crawl. The children will be going on a minibeast hunt around the school to observe and identify minibeasts in their natural habitat. Following this, the children will be researching different minibeasts and find out what their habitats are like, what they eat/drink and how they protect themselves. We will be investigating how far and how fast snails travel, and making our very own wormery!  The children will also be looking at the life cycles of different minibeasts and how some minibeasts can camouflage themselves.


At the end of our context, the children will be using ICT to create a class presentation on what they have learnt and will create a class minibeast song.

Please see the sheet below for learning ideas that your children can do at home.

PE sessions take place every Thursday. Please ensure that your child has a navy blue PE kit (shorts and t-shirt)and trainers/plimsolls. 

Children have snack every day. Please ensure that you pay £1.20 per week.
If you wish to pay by cheque, please make it payable to ‘Lakeside Primary Snack Account'.

If you would like to pay in advance, the amount for this half term is £8.40. The total for the autumn term is £16.80.

Please see the class teachers if you are in arrears and need to know the new total due.
