Homework for Y3, 4 and 5 is now updated on the homework page.

Year 3

We have enjoyed our Tremors project but are looking forward to our new Stone Age topic. Our learning will start by placing significant events in British history on a timeline, beginning with the Stone Age and finishing with modern Britain. We will learn how the Stone Age people survived and what tools they used. 

In the first week back we are working in our new SFA groups and are looking forward to reading more interesting books.

Year 4

At the start of our summer term Year 4 will be studying measures and converting units, then moving onto perimeter of 2D shapes in mathematics. Our new theme called Blood, Bones and Gory bits will be introduced with a study of teeth. This theme focuses on the human body and, in particular the digestive system.

SFA starts straightaway and children will be introduced to their new book. It is also Science Week so classes will be performing experiments culminating in a celebration assembly at the end of the week.

4J have their last swimming lesson on the first Monday back and PE is on a Wednesday as usual. 

Year 5

For Y5 we start the new term with a mini Science week where we will be delving into the topic of FORCES.  This will include investigations into: Air, Gravity and Displacement.  A very hands-on week.  This will then conclude our Space Theme.

In mathematics, we will be supporting our science learning with converting and using a variety of measures.  Practical and theoretical.

Computing will continue with coding in our new IT suite.

There will also be the usual arithmetic assessment to gauge the mathematical understanding.

SPAG will be revisiting possessive apostrophes.

Year 6

After our well deserved rest over Easter, we will be making our final preparations for SATs; learning about statistics and averages in maths, continuing to practise applying reading skills during SFA lessons and consolidating our understanding of SPaG terminology. 
The fun isn’t over for year 6 just yet: in Topic lessons, we will be launching our new, chocolate inspired theme. Learning all about the history of chocolate and where in the world our favourite treats are created. 
The year 6 team would like to take this opportunity to thank our families for your continued support and to wish you all a lovely Easter holiday. 
Don’t forget:
– Practise your spellings in preparation for our weekly tests
– Use TTRockstars to practise timestables 
– Recall all FDP facts
– PE kit should be in school on a Monday ready for our PE lesson on Thursday
– Remember to read often and complete your reading records
Things we are looking forward to:
– Spending time with our families this Easter
– Launching our new topic: Chocolate world
