Summer

If all the world were paper - Assembly poem

 

If all the world were paper

I would fold up my gran and take her everywhere I go.

I would laminate my baby sister in bubble wrap

and lay her to sleep in unbound fairy-tale book pages

and should she get scared:

Rip every fear,

Shred every scream,

Tear every tear.

 

If all the world were paper

I would re-bind my grandfather,

smooth out the dog-ears to all his stories,

place his younger days in a zoetrope

and flush the harrowing chapters

down an ink-gurgling well.

 

If all the world were paper,

kind deeds would be post-it notes

that stuck to the doer in ever growing trails,

so we would always remember,

friends would come with perforated lines

so you could keep their best bits with you at all times.

 

If all the world were paper,

Christmas wrapping foil and birthday cards

would follow you to school.

 

If all the world were paper

dreams would be Braille

so we could read them whilst we slept,

nightmares would be shopping lists

because shopping lists are so easy to forget.

 

If all the world were paper

arguments would rustle before they started

and could be put right with a little tape.

 

If all the world were paper

we could paperclip families together,

draw smiles on all the sad faces,

rub out the tears,

cover our homes in Tipex and start all over again.

 

All the world is not paper

but whilst we can imagine it were

we can recycle the rough times

knowing we will never - ever fold.

During the Summer term in English, we are reading 'The Lady Grace Mysteries: Assassin' by Grace Cavendish. We will use these texts as a stimulus for lots of writing, playscripts, biographies and drama.

 

In the first half of term in Maths, we will focus on place value of numbers and decimals and mental methods of multiplication and division. In the second half of term we will revisit fractions, money, time, perimeter and area. In addition to this we will also learn the properties of shapes, position and direction, data handling, length, mass and capacity. 

 

In science we have been learning about teeth and the digestive system. We have been looking at our own teeth and how we keep them healthy! 

 

 

We looked at our teeth in the mirror to help us draw our diagrams!

In IPC we are looking at Coasts. We have done map work to identify and locate coastal towns and cities in England. We have also looked at the different coastal formations and will continue to identify different types of beaches and consider their similarities abd differences. In addition to this we will learn about the process of erosion.
