Welcome to Netton Class
Summer Term 6
We hope you enjoyed your half-term break and made the most of the wonderful sunshine! We enter this term with continued uncertainty but know the wonderful learning at home will continue! It is lovely to see our key worker children at school and hope it is not too long until we are all together safely again.
This term we will continue with our topic, ‘Coasts’. Our learning will be based on the fantastic book ‘The Snail and the Whale’ by Julia Donaldson. We will be looking at the descriptive language used in the story and using this in our own writing with projects including postcards and stories. Phonics will continue to be set daily and it is really important to continue the repetition and activities given. Please also listen to you child read each day, either using a book from home or the online reading scheme. We will continue to use White Rose for maths but have added extra optional daily activities to do if you need more practise or would like a challenge. In the afternoons we have continued to set a topic or science based activity. Start collecting your plastic recycling now …!
Each week the learning will be added below. Please get in touch if you have any queries and please send any examples of work and photos that you would like us to share on our class web page.

Home learning planning and resources:
Last term we did some fantastic cross curricular work in Netton for the Take One Picture scheme for the National Gallery. Mrs Hawkes came in and ran a portrait drawing session which everyone really enjoyed and we have had lots of additional portraits sent in from home as a result. We were hoping to follow this learning up during Art Week in the Summer Term but just in case we aren’t all back in time, it might be nice if the children looked to the painting for inspiration for their own art project at home!
|Here are some of our studies of Passion fruit. They are growing in the hedgerow of the painting and represent ‘life’.|
Create your own masterpiece in response to the painting!
you may like the huge hat that our hero wears…. or feel inspired to create your own banner or heraldry….. you might like the use of nature in the painting and create your own response to flowers… you may think about the battles you face in life and what they look like (what’s your armour?)….. you might explore your favourite fruit and think what it represents for you…. you might like the repetitive patterns in the painting and create a response to this… the painting might remind you of another painting…….
The ideas are limitless and can be expressed in any medium – drawing, textile, sculpture, paint, film or even just yourself!
This years painting is The Battle of San Romano by Paolo Uccello, 1438-40. Please take a look on their website to become familiar with the scheme:
Please visit the other paintings at the National Gallery and take a family trip around the artworks from your sitting room! Maybe also visit the Tate – can you find any other galleries to visit from the comfort of your home? Share your ideas please!

The Getty Museum in California are asking people to recreate famous paintings by using everyday household items.
1. Choose a masterpiece
2. Choose three items from around the house
3. Re-create the masterpiece

|The whole school value we are thinking about this term is Justice. Please chat to your family and friends about this and try and think about why this is such an important value for Christians.|
