In English, we will begin by completing a poetry unit called ’Guarding Secrets’. During this, we will explore free-verse poems that include description. We will then begin looking at Journalistic Reports through the text- ’The Island’. 

Encourage your child to read their school reading book and ask them questions about the book which they are reading. Also, please encourage your child to log on to Reading+ at home, to help them level up and develop their reading skills.



In Maths, we will be moving onto looking at Percentages. We will then begin to convert between fractions, decimals and percentages. We will also begin looking at measurement & converting between different units.

 How you can help your child?   Practice times tables and division facts regularly. Encourage your child to log on to Sumdog and TT Rock Stars to practice their multiplication facts and battle against their friends to become a Rock Star champion.



This term our theme is Rivers.

This term our theme is ‘Rivers’. We will explore the key features of Rivers, as well as look at some real life examples of rivers around the UK. We will also look at how we can look after our rivers and what we can do to protect them.

 How you can help your child? 
Please keep asking your children what they have been learning in their theme lessons as discussion at home is very important.


In Science, our topic is Electricity. Children will have hands on experience with designing and making a full circuit as well as experience of making changes to the components and observing the effect this has on the circuit.

How you can help your child? 
Please keep asking your children what they have been learning in their science lessons as discussion at home is very important.

This half-term in RE, we will be exploring Jesus and who he was. We will look at the the term Messiah to help us understand what this means. 

Class Text this Term: 

River Boy

Grandpa is dying. He can barely move his hands any more but, stubborn as ever, refuses to stay in hospital. He's determined to finish his last painting, 'River Boy', before he goes.

At first Jess can't understand his refusal to let go, but then she too becomes involved in the mysterious painting. And when she meets the river boy himself, she finds she is suddenly caught up in a challenge of her own that she must complete - before it's too late . . .
