Our topic for the Summer term is:


Swallows and Amazons

There are many useful online resources with information relevant to our topic. Try these for starters!

A topic to run alongside our Wednesday morning sailing lessons, based on the famous children’s book from  1930 by author Arthur Ransome. The children will learn about sailing and outdoor education and use these skills and experiences, alongside a class reading of Swallows and Amazons to produce imaginative pieces of writing .Linked to the theme of discovery of far off lands, they will learn about the Mayan Civilisation, and South America in comparison to Cornwall.

Over the course of the topic pupils will gain new skills from their Sailing lesson whilst working towards a level 1 Sailing qualification as well as Outdoor Education skills such as fire building, during our Outdoor Education lessons which will take place on the school grounds from Wednesday 12th June onwards

Year 5 children in Drinnick are taught by Mr Barritt. Mrs Williams is on hand to provide general TA support and class cover on a Tuesday. Drinnick children also have Mrs Trula on a Monday afternoon for their Spanish lessons.
