We will be using this page to keep you up to date with your child's learning.

We plan to include information about what we will be learning, things you can do to support your child at home and any special events or activities that your child will be participating in.


Spring term


This half term our topic is Volcanoes.


In science, the children will be studying Rocks and Soils.  

In RE, we will be exploring Christianity.  


In PE, the children will be taking part in Real PE (gymnastics) and creative games. (PE takes place on a Tuesday and Thursday. However, we advise the children bring their kit in every Monday and take it home at the end of the week to avoid forgetting it on PE days).

This term the children will also have swimming lessons every Wednesday at the Magnet Leisure Centre. They will need to come into school wearing their swimming costume and bring a bag containing a towel, hat and goggles and a change of underwear. 


In Maths children will continue to work on  multiplication and division. Our focus is on the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. Children should be confident in their 2, 5 and 10 times table. We will move onto a unit involving money and calculating amounts. We will also carry out some practical work to gather. present and interpret data. The focus will be on bar charts and pictograms


The English text this half term is 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' by Philip Pullman.

The children will be learning a shortened version of the story which we will adding to the website so they can practise at home.
