Reading Books: reading books will be changed on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The school expectation is for children to change their books within a 2-week period. 

Lunchtimes: Children will be eating lunch in their houses (Apollo, Endeavour, Galileo and Phoenix), and houses will be rotated regularly. This provides children with the opportunity to mix with other year groups and to make new friends. Feedback from the children to date has been very positive.

This term our topic is 'Intriguing Inventors'. We will be studying the work of Leonardo Da Vinci. In history, we will discover the time period Da Vinci lived and more about his inspiring inventions. We will be comparing his work with that of modern inventors and how their work has changed life today. Children will become inventors themselves in Design and Technology, using skills to create their own working models. Da Vinci was an accomplished artist, so children will look at his work and then create their own compositions using 3D effects. In PSHCE, children will be gaining an understanding of take care of their mental health.


In English, we will be looking at famous people and writing biographies. 


Children will be continue to look at different types of measure, reading scales and then learn to tell the time in analogue and digital formats.

Reading: Please continue to read daily, even for 10 minutes, and complete the reading task in the reading journal. Books should be changed regularly.

Maths Passport: Regular practise of Maths Passport targets helps pupils to retain knowledge and helps them to utilise these facts in other mathematical learning.
