  • Homework - All homework is given out on a FRIDAY and should be completed and returned to the subject teacher by THURSDAY.


What are we learning about this term?


Local Famous People - we are extremely fortunate to have an abundance of historical figures in our local area. We shall be exploring their lives, inventions, achievements and talents, and trying out their skills for ourselves through art, design, games, competitions and drama.



English will be taught by Ms Challenor this term and will continue to be linked to our topic where possible,  focusing on spelling, sentence structures and using a wider range of puctuation through a wide variety of text genres.

We will be looking at extending and developing your ideas through more complex grammatical structures and using interesting and creative language. Additionally, we will be learning to identify and use a range of grammatical features, like word classes, phrases and clauses. 

We will continue with reading and spelling sessions which aim to improve essential skills across the curriculum. 



Mrs Lord and Miss Mason will be teaching you for Maths. They shall be focussing on calculations, mostly multiplication and division. Try to get quicker at remembering your times tables!



Living Things and Their Habitats - This first half term we shall be looking at how to identify, group and classify living things. We shall create classification keys to identify living things from the habitats found around our school. Environment changes will also be part of unit of work; we shall look at man-made and natural changes and the impact these changes have on living things.



Taught by Mrs Fish and Mr Gee, you will be exploring the new operating system and practising your Microsoft Office skills (PowerPoint, Word, Excel). Website navigation will also be covered, linked to our topic work of Local Famous People.


What do we need to remember to bring to school?

Our PE days this term are Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please make sure you bring your kit, which should be a plain white t-shirt, plain black leggings/shorts/jogging bottoms and trainers or pumps. All long hair should be tied back and under no circumstances should jewellery be worn. 


Please remember to bring your reading book every day in order to read in class and to an adult if necessary. If you need to change your book, remember to ask Mrs Findler at morning registration.


Homework is given out on a Friday and should be completed and returned to the subject teacher by the following Thursday. If your homework is not completed on time, you will have to miss the House Team Challenge on a Friday afternoon.
