Autumn Term 1 2022-2023
I am so excited about this year and very much looking forward to seeing you all again after the summer break. Mrs Johnson, Mrs Kiernan and Miss Robinson will all be working across Key Stage 2 this year so we are very lucky to have so many super staff members in our team.
We have some super topics to study this term which will involve lots of outside work and exploring the local area. Our first topic is all about sustainability and climate change so we will be linking our written work to this topic.
In science we will take a close look at different life cycles in plants and animals. There will be a lot of art linked to this topic so all you budding artists can get excited!
Our PE days this term are on Mondays and Tuesdays so please make sure you are in your PE kits on these days.
We all know each other really well now so, please remember, you can speak to anyone in school if you have any concerns or worries.
If you would like to find out any more information about our learning this half term, please look at the medium term plan below.
Summer Term 2
This half term we will continue to study Ancient Rome with a closer look at why the Romans wanted to invade Britain. We will also be learning some key facts about the Romans in our French lessons.
In Science we have two more lessons in our forces topic to finish and then we will finish the year by taking a close look at the human heart and how it is part of the circulatory system.
Our PE lessons for this half term will be SWIMMING!! We have waited so long to get back into the pool so make sure your swimming kits are in school every Monday and Friday. You won't need to wear your PE kits this term apart from on sports day. Remember to bring goggles if you are used to using them in the pool.
We will also need to spend lots of time rehearsing for the end of year production Robin Hood, so I hope you are all busy learning your lines!

This term our topic is all about Ancient Rome. After discovering the legend of the founding of Ancient Rome, we will study the effectiveness the the Roman ruling system then look at the different jobs that people would have had during this period in history.
Our science topic is all about forces including gravity, air and wind resistance and how different surfaces can affect how much frictions is produced.
We have our residential to Grafham Water so keep checking your kit list is getting packed!
Also, for those of you in the choir, we are finally going to Young Voices. I am so excited to be able to sing at the O2 Arena again. For those of you who haven't been before, it is an unforgettable event.
Our PE days have changed this term. You will need to come to school dressed in your PE kits on Mondays and Tuesdays. We have the Hunts Schools Sports Partnership coming in to teach athletics on Tuesdays.

Spring Term 2
As the weather starts to warm up and Spring approaches, we are going to get out and explore Brington village in more detail as part of our local study. Make sure you always have warm clothes and a coat in school for these village walks. You will be exploring clues that help us find out when buildings were built and spot things that you have probably not noticed before about the village in which many of you live. We will continue to have PE on Mondays and Wednesdays so remember to come into school with your PE kits on.
Please have a look at the planning for half-term below for more details about our next busy half-term.
Spring Term 1
Happy New Year!!
I am really looking forward to 2022. We have so many new and exciting topics to immerse ourselves in and your dedication to learning last term makes me keen to get the new term underway.
This term we will be taking a close look at the area in which we live and where it is positioned in the world. We will be exploring the village on foot. I know you will be surprised to learn new information about things you walk past every day. We will be using paper and online maps, and digging deeply into what makes our area unique.
I love the science topic this term. We will find out how to classify all living things. There may be sweets involved too!
PE days are the same as last term so come into school in your PE kits on Mondays and Wednesdays.
If you want to find out more about our learning this term then take a look at the medium term plan for more details.
Finally - I know I always say this - but please let us know if you need any extra help or support at any time. We want you to love learning and being in school.
Autumn Term 2
What an amazing first half term we had to our World War II topic! Our 'Brington Anderson Shelter' project is almost complete with just one or two more sessions to go. Our first novel study 'Letters from the Lighthouse' had us on tenterhooks as we got towards the end and finished on the last day of half term. I have never seen a class so keen to listen to a story!
The success of our tag rugby team was the icing on the cake of a brilliant start for Eagles Class this academic year.
We will continue this topic this half term and start to explore the home front, the D Day landings and the end of World War II.
Our PE days will change this half term so pupils need to come into school in their PE kits on Mondays and Wednesdays. We are having a go at a new sport later in the half-term. Mrs Johnson is quite excited!
Please see below for more information in the Medium Term Plan below.
