  • Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly
  • The Odyssey by Gillian Cross

For Maths, we will be using the White Rose scheme.

  • Statistics
  • Multiplicatiin and Division
  • Perimeter and Area

Our Come and See topics are Ourselves, Life Choices and Hope.

In Science lessons we will be learning about Life Cycles and Changes and Reproduction.

The Ancient Greeks is our History topic for this term and for Geography our topic is Marvellous Maps.

In our P.E. lessons this term, we will be covering Netball, Swimming and Gymnastics. Cityscapes is the Art topic and for DT the topic is Building Bridges. In Spanish lessons we will be covering core vocabulary and vegetables.

In Music children will continue to learn the violin. Staying Safe and Staying Healthy will be covered in PSHE.


Please listen to your child reading a few pages from their home reading book every night. Children should complete 2 lessons on Reading Eggspress each week at home.

Spelling lists will be sent home on Monday to learn for a test on Friday. Please help your child to learn the spelling lists. This will really help them with their writing in school.  Most children still need to continue to work on stage 3 and 4 spellings but should be beginning to learn the stage 5 and 6 spellings. Your child should use Hit the Button daily to improve his/her speed at recalling the times tables and number bonds. It is really important that your child knows the times tables well. Please help them to learn these by doing a little with them every day and ensuring that they use this website to try to beat his/her scores.
