What a great start to the year! We've been working really hard learning all about prehistoric times and developing our literacy and numeracy skills. I'm sure you'll agree our harvest performance was excellent (we managed to fit in learning songs, lines and drama during this first half term too!) We hope you enjoyed our beautiful singing.  

Soon we'll have an amazing immersive workshop experience to consolidate our understanding of our topic. Check out our letter on this page for more information. 

In literacy we created some fantastic descriptions and narrative using the Stone Age Boy as our inspiration text. In maths we’ve focused on understanding place value (thousands, hundreds, tens, ones). We'll now be focusing on addition and subtraction with a weekly shape, space and measure lesson incorporated. Multiplication will also be a huge focus this year, especially for the Year 4’s, who will undertake a statutory timed multiplication test at the end of the year. 

Spellings will be sent home weekly and will be available to download from the website too. For further information about homework see the downloadable document on this web page.

We look forward to working with you in partnership. As always thanks for your support; together we’ll ensure your child continues to flourish and achieve.

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.
