Happy new year! We worked really hard in 2019 and I know we're all ready for another excellent year. We enter 2020 with a new exciting topic to develop our history skills; The Victorians. As part of this learning we'll travel back in time and become immersed in life in a Victorian school for the day. More information will become available on this page in due course. 

Last term in literacy we created some fantastic writing and developed our grammatical understanding using texts such as the Stone Age Boy and The Boy With A Bronze Axe  as our inspirational texts. This term we'll be continuing to develop our writing skills across a range of genres and focusing on texts such as Street Child and I Want My Hat Back. 

In the Autumn term in maths we focused on understanding place value (thousands, hundreds, tens, ones) and addition and subtraction skills. This term we'll continue with a weekly shape, space and measure lesson and doing the Golden 50 weekly to develop our speedy recall of multiplication and division facts. This term we'll begin our focus on multiplication and division. 

Spellings will continue to be sent home weekly (every Friday) 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.
