Pelican Module Summary Term 2

PE

Kwik cricket coach will continue to teach the pupils on a Friday each week. On a rota basis some pupils will also access riding and swimming. In addition we will be learning ball skills with a focus on football term 2. We are hoping to establish a team to play some external schools, for those pupils that would like such an activity to extend their learning.

Continuing with our topic  ‘Travel’ . All topic timetabled lessons will focus on the various methods of travel, and we will bring these to life by creating some 3D forms of travel in art/science. Investigation work will be key in establishing facts about how to travel certain distances, the costs, practicalities and processes involved in each mode of transport.
