Learning At Home
Weekly Home Learning is set using Google Classrooms. Login details have been sent out via e-mail and are located in the back of your reading journals. Please let us know if you are having any problems in accessing or using Google Classrooms and we will help you to sort them out as quickly as possible.
Home Learning - reading, spellings, maths fluency and times tables - will be posted on a Friday. Our spelling test and times tables challenge will be on a Friday. Please make sure you click on 'mark as done' to tell me you have completed your tasks!
Anglo-Saxons and Vikings
Our learning this term will be themed around the groups of people who lived in Britain after the Romans and why those chose to settle here. We'll be reading sagas and narrative poetry and then having a go at writing some of our own. Look at the medium term plans below to find specific objectives.
PE days will continue to be Wednesday and Friday. Friday sessions will be in the Forest Area until half term so you will want to make sure you are wearing long trousers, long sleeves and have a waterproof coat and trousers in school. Please ensure you have named wellies on the rack at all times too!
After the half term holiday, we will be swimming twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. You will need your swimming kit on these days - a towel, appropriate swim wear (and goggles if you wish), all clearly named in a named bag. On all days forecast to be sunny and warm, you will need a hat in school and you will need to have applied sun cream at home before school please. Remember your water bottle every day too!
Summer Term 2 is a busy one! In addition to swimming, we'll spend a day being Vikings in the Forest Area and we've got our end of year Key Stage 2 production to rehearse and perform. It'll be epic!
Spring Term 2
Spring Term 2 will be focused on finding out about volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis and other natural extreme events and then considering carefully how they impact upon people and also the landscape. We'll be doing lots of research and then recreating our own extreme events in the school grounds. Look out for examples of our learning coming below. You might be able to spot some budding journalists or some future digital artists!
Take a look at our medium term plan below to find out more.

Spring Term 1
What a brilliant half term it's going to be! We'll start by examining and building our own bridges whilst we consider what we already know about rivers before diving into our learning in Science and Geography - the water cycle and physical features of rivers. It's one of my favourite topic areas and we're going to try to get outside as much as we can so please make sure you have a good pair of wellies on the rack and that you bring a suitable waterproof coat to school every day!
PE will continue to be on Wednesday and Friday each week - please come in your PE kits on those days. See our 'Uniform' page for uniform requirements.
