Some highlights from last term

The Class have been learning the ukulele with Mrs Barnes on Fridays.  They were very excited to share what they had learnt. 

We made model solar systems to use as props in our Stargazing documentaries. The children already have so much knowledge about space and have recently learnt about the geocentric and heliocentric models of the solar system. 

In Religion we are discussing places of worship. The children drew some features of a Christian church and then had to identify what type of church it was. We will be exploring Hindi places of worship next 

Hello! I hope you've all had a fantastic week back at school. Take a look at our overview for term two to see what we are up to.

Our P.E day is now Wednesday. 

We have jumped straight in with multiplication this week. We have identified multiples, factors, common factors and prime numbers. Practicing your times tables at home will really help you with this area of maths. 

A copy of this terms spelling is being sent home today but there is also a copy here on the website. 

We've had a fantastic day in Class 5. I'm so impressed with everyone's creativity and resilience. All the bags are looking amazing. Well done class 5!!

If you would like to arrange a phone call to discuss reports, please email the class email address.

What a great week it's been! Full of newspaper reports, designing our tote bags and much more.

We have come to the end of our addition and subtraction unit. We've been using column method throughout. We have explored estimating by rounding numbers to get a rough answer. We have also used the inverse to check our answers. Multi-step problems proved challenging and may be something you wish to explore further at home. 

This week in English we wrote a newspaper report about the mysterious disappearance of Tristan from our class text, The Viewer.

Our tote bag designs are complete and the class are very excited to start the creating process next week. If you have any old t-shirt that you are willing to donate to our upcycling project please do send them in early next week. 

Have a lovely weekend.

The children used pieces of spaghetti (I was out of macaroni) to show where commas were needed in a range of sentences.


What a fantastic week we've had. I hope you've enjoyed being back at school as much as I have.  Information about this term and spellings are below. Have a well deserved rest this weekend and I'll see you on Monday.

Home learning


During this term we will not be sending out homework. However, there is plenty you can do to support your child at home.


Please ensure your child practises their spellings during the week, ready to be assessed on the Friday.


Encourage your child to read on a daily basis. Listen to them read to ensure good pace and fluency.

Questions you could ask.

What’s happened so far?

What do you think will happen next?

What does ______ mean?

Tell me about the character?

Do you like that character?

Why did the author use that word?

Times tables

Continue to practise times tables, either on Times Tables Rock Stars or in your preferred way.
