Saunton Summer Term 2022


This week we have been exploring mental strategies for subtraction. 

In English, we have been planning and writing a formal letter to the Devon Wildlife Trust supporting the possible introduction of beavers to our local environment. 

We have researched Maya life as a commoner.


This week we have been learning about the reintroduction of beavers to North Devon.  In maths we have worked on solving equivalent addition calculations.  We have investigated germination of seeds and how water transports through a stem.


The children have worked hard this week and are enjoying our new topic on South America.  We have started to explore a Brazilian artist- Beatriz Milhazes and what inspires her art.  In English we are reading The Rainforest Rough Guide.  We are revisiting methods for addition and subtraction in maths.


This week we have been learning about the continents and oceans of the world in geography.    

In English we have explored how the author of our core text uses different writing styles to communicate factual information. 

In maths, we have continued to explore addition.
