We looked at pictures of the African savannah at sunset. The land is covered in grass with the occasional tree. We painted a sunset background, mixing our own colours. We used yellow, orange, red, pink and purple and blended them together. Then we used black pen to draw the silhouette of an acacia tree or a baobab tree. We are really proud of the results!
Each half term we set six home learning tasks for you to complete, interpreting the challenge and completing it in your own way. You may choose which activity you will do each week and by half term, you will have done them all.
Please bring your home learning to school on Wednesdays, with your spelling home learning.

Our Spring Term Big Bang!
We met local author Lou Treleaven. She told us some of her stories and we created our own inventions like the Oojamaflip from her book Professor McQuark and the Oojamaflip. It was a lovely way to start our book based topic.
Many of us made models of landmarks in London for our home learning. We turned them into a giant map of London:

Previous Class Newsletters
In Autumn and Spring Term, we sent home a class newsletter. In the Summer Term, each class contributes to the school newsletter so that parents don't have to read multiple documents.
You can also find out what we have been up to via the school Twitter feed.

At Kimpton we try to keep our curriculum exciting and engaging for our children. Each term we have a different topic which could be literacy based, humanities based or even a science topic.
