Firstly, I’d like to say happy new year and a warm welcome back to school! We worked really hard in the Autumn term and I know we will continue to do so. Our new topic for this term is Extreme Earth, where we will be learning all about earthquakes and volcanoes. The homework activities for the children this term allow them to 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 so far we have produced some excellent pieces of writing. This term we will be continuing to develop our grammatical understanding and writing skills through exploring a range of text types while using our Extreme Earth topic as a focus.

In maths we will continue to have one lesson a week on shape, space and measure. Our other lessons will initially be focussed on multiplication and division. Golden 50 and Golden 100 will continue to be a weekly numeracy activity for children too.

Spellings will continue to be handed out weekly with the year 4 test on a Tuesday and year 5 on a Thursday. All of the spelling sheets for this term are available to download on this page.

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. 


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