Firstly, I’d like to say a very warm welcome back to a new school year! There’s a lot to look forward to throughout the year and I’m sure it is going to be a great first term! 

Our first topic for this year is Dungeons and Dragons, with a specific Tudor focus. We will be exploring and discovering all of the key elements of this time period; including how Henry VII came to power, Henry VIII and his six wives and also what life was like in Tudor England. The topic will also be used in art where we will be looking at making Tudor roses, creating Tudor portraits and using different media to create artistic representations of dragons. The homework activities for the children this term allow them continue their learning surrounding the topic and give them the opportunity to choose tasks from different subject areas. Please see the downloadable document for more details. 

In literacy we will be exploring a range of text types while using our Dungeons and Dragons topic as a focus. In maths we will be learning about place value, addition and subtraction and multiplication and division, as well as having one lesson on shape, space and measure each week. Golden 50 and Golden 100 will continue to be a weekly numeracy activity for the children. Spellings will be handed out weekly and will be available to download from the website too. 

To find out more about what we will be learning this term, please feel free to download our curriculum map.


PE days are Monday and Tuesday starting Monday 9th September. Please ensure your child has PE kit on both of these days. 

Spellings are given out on Tuesday (Y4) and Thursday (Y5). 

Topic homework can be handed in on a Wednesday. 

Golden time is on a Friday.

Thank you for visiting us and we hope to see you soon!
