Children can select their own reading book from our class or whole school library. Children will be heard read as often as possible in school but we encourage them to read a few pages every night at home. Please record when your child has read to you in their reading record. The children also have access to ReadingPlus, we would like for the children to aim to access this for 5 minutes each weekday evening and they will be given time in school, regular use of this site will give them the opportunity to extend their understanding of different types of text, vocabulary and comprehension.

Please make sure your child brings in their reading record and reading books to school everyday. 



Our English lessons are based on a half termly book.

This half term we will be reading our pathways to write book, Manfish, A story of Jacques Cousteau by Jennifer Berne. Our writing outcome is to write a multi-modal biography of Jacques Cousteau in the style of the 'Great Adventurers' text. 


Below are the areas of maths that we will be covering this half term:

Mental and written methods for multiplication and division.

Problem solving and reasoning.




Science - Can you light up a stage?

Children will develop their knowledge of key light phenomena, centred around transparencies, lenses and coloured light. 


Children will explore Greek life and achievements and their influence on the western world. We will study everyday life in Ancient Greece, how democracy and governance was similar/different from democracy in the UK today, that many of our modern-day words originated from this period and that the Olympic games also originated from Ancient Greece.






Our Christian value this half term is truthfulness.


Children will be taking part in lessons with a specialist teacher.


Children will have use of the in-class computers and iPads. The children will create their own Kahoot quiz based on a subject of their choice. 


In Music the children will be following a programme called Charanga. The unit they will cover is called You've Got a Friend. The focus is around the singer/songwriter Carole King and the other artists who have recorded this song. The children are encouraged to develop their musical skills through listening, appraising, differing musical activities and performing.
