Term 2

Being new to Ranikhet, I have so enjoyed getting to know all of your wonderful children last term. Thank you for making me feel so welcome and thank you for all your support. 

This term our topic focus are Predators! From terrifying sharks to ferocious big cats, this unit has so much exciting and engaging content to really entice our young learners.

Over the past two weeks, Aquamarines have been getting their teeth into everything predator!

We've linked our English to the children writing a recount of their trip to Bristol Zoo where they learnt about some wonderful animals, their habitats and attended a workshop about “Food Chains”. 

In Maths, children explored and applied their learnt “Shapes and Perimeter” skills to draw their own versions of “Bristol Zoo”.

Meanwhile in topic (and linked English) each child created their own predator, called Jabberwock, devouring some prey and made a non-chronological report about it. Gruesome stuff!


Please enjoy working with your children on their homework. You can find this in their books. There is lots of choice and your children can earn house points as an extra incentive!

Term 3

What an amazing term we have planned for you! We are going to be studying our community… our town… our surroundings…. becoming 'Urban Pioneers' so keep coming back to see what we all are getting up to.
