Important Information

Homework is set on a Friday and due in on a Thursday.

Listening to your child read can make a huge difference to their education and progress in school. The children all have a reading record and leveled reading book that should be brought into school and taken home every day. 

They are able to change their reading books as and when they ask to do so, so please prompt your child as needed.

Our topics for the year are:

Term 1 and 2 - Underneath. During this topic we will be exploring what is underneath us. We will begin by becoming expert archaeologists and exploring how we can find out about the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages by looking at what is left behind in the ground. As scientists we will look at rocks and soils before looking at light and shadows. Later on we will begin to look at other things we can find underneath us: from animals that burrow, the importance of worms to the layers of the earth and how the tectonic plates form mountains and volcanoes and cause earthquakes. 

Term 3 and 4 -  European Pioneers. We will learn about the continent of Europe this term. Exploring the countries through the artists and inventors who lived around the continent. 

Term 5 and 6 - Wild. In our final term we will study plants and think about how we can look after our environment. Through looking at fauna in different habitats we will learn about the importance of bees in England and compare habitats in our country to those in rainforests. We will think about the threats to these incredible, essential places and think about ways we can make a difference.
