Happy new year! We hope you've had a wonderful festive period, even if it has been a quieter one than usual.
Spring term learning
As always, this term we'll be undertaking lots of different learning and working hard, whilst having fun! In literacy our narrative genre will be familiar settings and non-fiction will include recounts, persuasive writing and non-chronological reports. We will also be learning a significant poem for our poetry strand this term.
This term, as mathematicians, we will begin with multiplication and division and then move onto fractions. As part of our shape, space and measure learning we'll be focussing on position, direction, length and perimeter.
This term our new topic is called Protect our Planet. As geographers we will be finding out about climate change. We will be exploring the causes of global warming, the overall impact and effect on the planet including the effect on animals and humans and also the management of climate change. In science this term we will be developing our Physics and Biology knowledge and understanding. Our first science topic will be Light and later in the term we will focus on Plants. For more information on the curriculum for this term see the curriculum map and homework documents (will be uploaded to this site shortly).

Advice for Parents
You might be wondering how you can help your child at home with the work that we do in school. There are a number of ways that you can support with their reading, writing and maths. We have attached a grammar glossary, times table support (including the golden 50) and reading questions to ask your child when they're reading to you at home.
