Summer 1

Our Next Topic is....

"My Island Home"


Our next topic will is entitled "My Island Home". During this topic we will be reading a collection of stories written by the children's author and illustrator Mairi Hedderwick. Her books are set on the fictional Isle of Struay off the west coast of Scotland and feature the adventures of little girl called Katie Morag who is the title character. These books are loosely based upon on the Scottish island of Coll in the Inner Hebrides.


This topic will have a strong Geography focus and we will be exploring the real Scottish island of Coll in the inner Hebrides. Mairi Hedderwick lived here for a number of years and it inspired her writing. During this topic we will be using the Island of Coll/Struay to inspire our writing and Design Technology.


Alongside this topic we will be learning about fielding games in P.E and in ICT we will be Roamers and algorithms. Our science topic will be the characteristics of animals and in SCARF/PHSE we will be learning about being our best self.


We are really excited about all of the learning that is going to take place this half term and we hope their will be lots of sunshine to support our outdoor learning.
