Welcome to a very exciting year group.

In English will be studying a range of key texts, including: ‘Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe’ and ‘Great Expectations’

In Science, we will be working as Biologists, Chemists and Physicists, looking at…

The Earth and Beyond, Materials, Forces, Life Cycles, Changes of State and much much more!

Have you ever wondered how we get day and night?

 

How an object falls to the Earth?

 

This year our topics in History will cover…

The Anglo Saxons and Medieval Monarchs 

 

 

What was at Sutton Hoo?

 

Was Richard the Lionheart really as brave as he was made out to be?

Who did really murder Thomas Beckett?

Children are expected to read at least three times a week. But every night is encouraged.

 
Please encourage your
child to read and remember to sign
the reading diary

The children receive Saints Points for good behaviour and acting like Earthly Saints in school. These are collected at the end of the week and the top boy and girl from each class earn themselves a PRIZE!

 

Another incentive for each class are MARBLES! The children earn marbles as class and will receive a whole class treart at certain milestones.

In addition: Only during winter weather - this is applicable to all boys and girls in school from Year 1 – 6.
Boys and girls may wear a tracksuit for outdoor lessons only. We recommend a plain dark (preferable black) pair of jogging bottoms and sweatshirt top or a tracksuit and underneath they wear their school RED PE top. These must be plain, no designer logos, football tops etc. Depending on the activity depends on whether children also
 require trainers.

In RE this year we are focusing on some of the following units:

Parables and sayings of Jesus.

In this unit, the children will gain a greater knowledge and understanding of the parables of Jesus. They will explore the concept of the kingdom of God from the teachings of Jesus and ways in which Christians respond to this teaching today through their belonging to the church.
