During the Spring Term our topic is Monsters and More!  Linked to this we will be reading and writing myths and legends in English as well as focusing on the great poem Beowulf. We will learn how to design a maze game in IT and undertake exciting projects in art and DT.  In History pupils will learn about the Anglo-Saxons. We will discover who they were, when they came to Britain, what life was like in Anglo-Saxon times as well as learning about the impact important discoveries such as the Sutton Hoo burial site has had on our understanding of Anglo-Saxon Britain. Our Geography focus will centre on UK settlements and this term's science topic will be on States of Matter.



Mrs Dikkez will teach the class on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesday mornings, and Miss O'Reilly will teach on Thursdays and Fridays.  Wednesday afternoons will alternate between Mrs Dikkez and Miss O'Reilly.

We will continue to follow the RWI Get Spelling Programme and children will have a weekly spelling test on a Monday morning.

Reading is such a valuable life skill and is also relevant across all subjects within school. Regular practice really does make a huge difference to reading ability, as does talking about what has been read with someone at home too. Please try to ensure your child reads at home for at least 15 minutes each night and gets their home/school diary signed to indicate that this has happened. 

Practising times tables will help in all areas of your child’s maths work and we will have a weekly times tables test in order to keep track of pupils' progress.

 Our PE lessons will be on a Tuesday and Friday each week. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school. The correct PE kit consists of: a white t-shirt, red shorts and plimsolls for indoor sports. Trainers are required for outdoor activities and joggers or tracksuit bottoms during these colder months. Swimming starts in March for our class.
