The Summer Term resumed on Tuesday and we have been blessed with weather from every season! Frosty mornings have given way to sunny afternoons, with some wonderful weather for sports, playtimes and outdoor learning.

Reception were amazed on Tuesday morning to find a message in a bottle that turned out to be from Captain Blackbeard the Pirate. They’ve been busy writing messages and drawing pictures for him. Today they had a wonderful time making shields, swords, dragons and helmets for their ‘Land of St. George’ play project – perfect for St. George’s Day!

Spring is definitely in the air in Year One! They have been writing some fabulous spring poems and have also been planting seeds for their new Science topic. They also investigated animal sounds in music, thinking about high and low pitched sounds.

Year Two are learning about the seaside, both in the past and the present, in Humanities. They too have been planting flower and vegetable seeds in Science.

Year Three have been exploring why the Romans invaded Britain and have begun making some super videos to explain their thinking. We are looking forward to seeing them when they are finished.

Year Four have started working on the classic C. S. Lewis novel ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’ in their English lessons. We won’t say too much about it yet – no spoilers here! They have also been working hard on decimal places in Maths.

Year Five were delighted to be able to finish off last term’s Science topic of Afternoon Tea’, with a well-earned, real-life afternoon tea in the Woodland Garden. Next up in Science for them is the mysteriously named ‘The Jungle Book’ topic. It will be interesting to see where that takes them!

Year Six have been using Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet in English, Drama and Art, looking in to the characters and the relationships with each other.

It doesn’t matter where you look at LJS, inside or outside, there is magic, wonder and excitement at every turn. It’s been a busy first week of term and we’re all delighted to be back!
