 Important information regarding school closure from Monday 23rd March 2020 -

Home learning packs have been put together for the pupils to complete at home during this period of closure. These include English and Maths workbooks, worksheets, reading books and the children's regular homework books. Homework books or alternative exercise books can be used to record any written work completed during this time. Other learning tasks will also be set regularly through Purple Mash,  so please check these regularly. All children have been provided with the login details necessary to access these websites however if you do need a reminder or any support with using them, please feel free to email your class teacher and we will be happy to help. Reading regularly is vital in practising phonics and early reading skills and should be continued as normal. Please feel free to read a range of books from school or home. 

The class pages will be used to communicate any learning with parents and students and will be updated regularly. Please keep checking the 'Home Learning' tab to the right to see tasks set or any important information. 

Should you have any questions during this time regarding teaching and learning, please use the email addresses below to contact your child's class teacher. Remember, we are here to help and the pupils' well-being, safety and learning are our priorities.

Our Learning

Spring 2

English - Our core text for this half term is ‘The Quest ’ by Ruth Merttens. We will be making predictions based on the text and writing our own versions of the story. We will also be focussing on creating an information booklet about the UK which will be linked to the work we have been doing in Geography.

Maths - We will be taking on the challenge to investigate a range of areas in Maths. We will be focussing on shape, fractions and time.

Science -To celebrate British Science week, we will be conducting a number of investigations and experiments to help develop out scientific skills. Visit our Science Fair on Wednesday 11th March to see what we have learnt.

History- What do Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and Edith Cavell all have in common? We are looking forward to finding out!

R.E- It's almost Easter so we will be learning about what Christians believe about Easter and why it is so important to them.

P.E- We are developing our team game skills and learning how to plat certain games in teams.

Music- We are exploring a range of music from around the world, including 'rock'.

Geography- Have you ever wondered which places in the UK are a must see? We will be learning about our country and the interesting and important places within it.

ICT - How do we safely use the internet to conduct research? Through the use of PurpleMash, we will be learning how to do this and using these skills throughout the term.
