We work creatively through the subjects to provide an enjoyable and stimulating journey through our topics – we love to get messy and build things in our class! We will continue to do this throughout our new terms topics.
History – We are studying the life and times of the Romans and their vast empire. Focussing on Invasions, what they brought with them to Celtic England, some of the famous people of that time and how they used to live.
Geography – Our class will be taking a journey to the centre of the Earth, finding out what lies beneath our feet and searching the world for cases of “Extreme Earth” – weather types, volcanoes and earthquakes.
Science – We are exploring and learning about the planets and celestial bodies we share a solar system with. Answering questions such as “How do we get day and night?” “Why does the world turn?” and “Why does the moon look different throughout the year?”
Homework will be given each week on Fridays/Mondays to be completed by the end of the week. There will always be times table, handwriting practice and spellings along with an activity closely linked to what we are doing in class that week to reinforce the learning from the classroom.
Reading - we suggest pupils read every day, about something that they are actually interested in. This will help increase their vocabulary, as well as looking at how words are spelled and how authors use language.
Spellings - practice any spellings given. You can use a dictionary to help you understand the meaning of the word, then use the words in sentences.
Handwriting - not only is it important to get used to writing with a pen or a pencil it's also important that your handwriting is legible (as best as possible).
Times Tables - these are important as they help your child in their maths lessons. Some children also need
Speaking and Listening - we encourage our students to talk to their families and share their day with them. This not only involves our parents and carers in their child's day but also encourages our students to listen to their family and friends too.
Students will have the opportunity to go on school trips throughout the year, to support and enhance their learning, but also as a reward for continuing good behaviour and good attitude. Students will also aim to fund raise throughout the year to support our school charities, which they enjoy very much.
