This spring our topic will be the Tudors.  We will learn about the daily lives of these groups and how they have influenced our lives today.  As part of this topic, we will be also looking at the work of William Shakespeare.


Our Science topic will be Forces. In music, our song this term will be Make You Feel My Love by Adele.


In English, we will be writing for a range of audiences and purposes including: narratives, persuasion, procedural writing, recounts and factual writing. In Maths, we will be learning about multiplication and division, fractions and decimals

Our Curriculum 


It is extremely important that children read regularly in school and at home.  Please read with your child and ask them questions about their book.  There are questions in children’s planners to help you see the types of questions you should ask.  Our class novels that we will use in class this term are Viking Boy, Anglo-Saxon Boy and The Dragons Hoard.  

Extra Bits


Each week children will get English and a piece of maths homework.  Children will receive a topic based homework which should take a half term to complete.  This homework is ongoing.  The maths and English will be given on a Friday and needs to be returned on Wednesday, where children will be tested on their spellings. Additionally, we have an online learning platform (Class Dojo) where you and your child has an account to access online resources.
