To complement the children’s learning at school, please could you help them at home as the key to these facts becoming embedded in the children’s memory is to practise little and often.

If you have any questions, please contact your class teacher via ClassDojo.

Term 6 Overview

So this is it, the final term of the year and we cannot wait to see you back!  We have an exciting term to look forward to as we learn, play and continue to create great memories in our time together.

We are continuing with our theme about the Romans and we will see this particularly as part of our English non-fiction learning, building on what we have learned so far. Although we have moved on from plants, we will continue to look after our vegetable beds and plats, but our science focus will move on to ‘Light’, learning how it helps us, reflections, shadows and some fun investigations along the way.  In RE, we will be returning to dive deeper into the Sikh faith and look out how Sikh people worship and celebrate.  We will continue to focus on reading, with all children reading to an adult every day (please also continue to read at home everyday for 10 minutes) in addition to whole class reading and small group guided reading sessions.  In maths, our focus returns to fractions to refresh our lockdown learning and build on this.  We will also be looking at time and shape.  We are looking forward to sharing our adventures with you on our ClassDojo pages.

Term 5 Overview

Welcome back everyone! We are looking forward to an exciting term learning, playing and creating memories together.

We will be looking at the Romans this term, how they impacted Britain and their legacy.  Our science focus is ‘Plants’ and we are looking forward to carrying out various experiments and getting outside to work on the freshly restored vegetable beds (thank you Mrs Gunn!). In RE, we will be looking at what happened after Easter when Jesus spent time with His disciples before ascending to heaven and sending them the gift of the Holy Spirit. We will continue to focus on reading, with all children reading to an adult every day (please also continue to read at home a minimum of 4 times a week for 10 minutes) in addition to whole class reading and small group guided reading sessions.  In maths, our focus is money as we recap place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division.  We are looking forward to sharing our adventures with you on our ClassDojo pages.

Term 4 Overview

After starting the term with home learning, it is so good to have all the children back in school to learn together, play together and create lasting memories together – a huge ‘Welcome back everyone!’

This term our theme is Anglo-Saxons and Vikings with activities across many subjects, including English, reading and art. Below you can find an overview of the term – there’s also a PDF download available.  As we build up to Easter, our class worship is focused around Jesus’ teaching.  In addition, we are also studying Christianity in our RE and asking the big question ‘Why do Christians call the day Jesus died Good Friday?’  We look forward to sharing our learning with you on our ClassDojo pages.

Alongside all the usual learning this week, we also have our Family Challenge Day on Wednesday 10th February.  The aim of the day is for the whole family to work together on different challenges all based around the theme of journeys.  The first challenge is to try and do this without any phones (only old fashioned ones to make phone calls!), tablets, computers, laptops or televisions! More details will be posted on ClassDojo tomorrow along with the pack you will need for Wednesday.  By completing challenges, you will earn raffle tickets for a special class book draw – the more challenges you complete, the more entries you will earn yourself!
