Welcome Back. 

We are looking forward to an exciting term of learning. 

This term we be working on the book 1918: Coming Home by Jim Eldridge, which is about a young boy's experience of World War 1 and the aftermath. From this we will produce a variety of written pieces, including a letter and a blackout poem. Following this we will look at a range of Norse myths and legends. 

Maths begins with geometry, looking at angles and will continue to develop the children's skills and understanding in a range of areas. Building from what they know and taking their understanding further. 

Science this term will be based on Moana and will look at shadows, water resistance and the water cycle amongst other things. 

For history we look find out more about World War 1, with a particular emphasis on Walter Tull and Frank Anderson,  discovering what life would have been like for them. 

PE will be on a Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning, children will need to be wearing appropriate clothing dependent on where their PE will take place.

In computing we will begin to learn about videos, how they are made and how to create them effectively for ourselves.  

PHSE looks to the relationships we have with others and ourselves, building to looking at RSE in more detail.  

RE is focusing in on Faith in Action and learning about the beliefs and practices involved. This will involve looking at our community and how faith groups support those in need. . 

Daily practice of times tables will continue and anything done at home will greatly support this. 

Track my read is still being used for recording all reading we do. Children are given time in school to record, but if they can track at home too they could win the reading prize. 

We look forward to another amazing term of learning and discovery.
