Creative Curriculum – The children will have fun finding out about coastlines around England and other parts of the world.  They will be learning about how; the sea forms and changes land, which creatures live along our coastline, piers are built and used as well as visiting Hunstanton.   We think they will have a great time!

ENGLISH - In English the children are focussing upon Writing a persuasive jingle for a holiday to Australia and then how stories from other cultures are written.  So they will have the chance to explore authors who write in these styles as well as having a go themselves.  We will continue to have spelling sessions regularly which will be followed up through homework.  The children are expected to read on a daily basis using books that they have chosen to read for enjoyment, please support your child by sharing their chosen book with them every night and encourage them to change their books and bring their reading records in to be checked by us.

MATHS - During Maths the children will be following the new Mathematical Framework which will cover using all four operations, as well as geometry, data handling, fractions and measuring. Keep practising those multiplication tables too!

R.E - During these sessions children will be exploring Islam thinking about how Muslims pray, who Muhammed is and what the Qu'ran is..

P.E – children should not be wearing any jewellery to school other than a watch and/ or stud earrings, both of which will need to be removed for P.E. lessons by your child. If children are unable to remove their earrings please can they remove them at home on P.E days. We are not permitted to remove a child’s earrings or apply the tape; the children need to be able to do this independently. Long hair must be tied back.

PE kits need to be in on Thursdays and Fridays please.  As we are outside as much as possible they will need to bring appropriate clothing and a change of footwear.

SCIENCE - In Science The children will be exploring Habitats. They have the chance to explore different habitats and finding out what lives in these and how they have adapted to their surroundings. The children are welcome to bring in resources and books relating to this. 

HOMEWORK - The children will continue to use the Homework Book for;

  • Writing out of sentences using their spelling words. (Spellings will be given out on a Thursday and the children will be tested each Wednesday).
  • There will be an English homework and a Maths homework as well as times table practice each week (times tables will be tested fortnightly).
  • The homework books are to be returned on a Monday morning.

  • We are looking forward to a term of positive learning!
