We will be looking at the superior strategies and weapons used by the Romans which saw their Empire spread across Europe.

Science Day Oct 2017

'Booknic' May 2018


PE will be Tag Rugby outside on a Monday and Gymnastics inside on a Thursday. Please ensure children have the correct PE kit in school on these days.

Home Reading

The Children will continue to use the accelerated reader program and will be able to quiz on books they have been reading. To support your child with this please take time to ask them questions about what they have read. This will aid the development of their comprehension skills alongside the work they will be undertaking in class. 

Please ensure your child brings their reading folder and reading record to school daily. Children can sign their own reading records if they have read to themselves but children are expected to read to someone else (an adult/older sibling) at least once a week. This is to allow the person being read to, to ask questions ensuring the child has understood what they have read. If you were not able to attend the parent event about helping children with key skills and would like to, please see me to arrange a time where we can go through the content of the evening and different strategies to assist children’s learning. 

In maths we will be looking at shape, angles, classifying shape and symmetry for the first part of the term. We will then move to measuring perimeter and using decimals with money.

This term we will be learning the text ‘King of the birds’, a wishing tale. Our focus will be writing to create suspense. Our non-fiction text will be ‘Granny Kidnapped’ a recount text. We will be focusing on writing our own recounts about events in school for this unit.
