This half term our topic is The Stone Age.


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


We will be carrying out an investigation so please bring in shoe boxes.


In RE, we will be exploring Judaism.  


In PE, the children will be taking part in Real PE (gymnastics) and striking and fielding. (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 our topic is measure, length and perimeter. The children should be able to convert metric units of length, for example mm to cm, cm to m. We will move on to fractions of shapes and amounts.

Our focus is on the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. Children should be confident in their 2, 5 and 10 times table.


The English text this half term is 'Stone Age Boy' by Satoshi Kitamura.

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