School Time Table

We will explore some Shakespeare by reading Marcia Williams' version of Romeo and Juliet.  This will lead to us writing part of a playscript.  Following this, we will read and work on the classic poem 'The Highwayman' by Alfred Noyes. 
As a class, we're completing reading 'Millions' by Frank Cottrell-Boyce.


In maths, we will use our knowledge of fractions and decimal numbers to link to understanding percentages.  In our next topic, we will be exploring angles: measuring angles, the investigation of angles on a line/point and drawing angles, before moving onto using angles as a descriptor for common shapes. We will then be solving problems involving angles and investigating angles inside regular polygons.  Finally, we will work on position and movement: naming and plotting points on a grid before moving onto the translation of shapes.  We will then work on describing reflections, including across a mirror line.


Throughout Summer, we investigate life cycles.  This half-term, we will look closely at the life cycle of plants.  We will learn about the parts of a flowering plant and how flowering plants reproduce.

Other curriculum areas

History - What do you know about the ancient Maya?  You may not no a lot - yet - but I'm sure that you will find our work on this topic very interesting.  We will learn when, where and how they lived. 

Reading books can be returned to be changed any day. Please encourage your child to read a few pages each night.  Book quizzes may be completed at home or in school.  If you are using the app at home, then you need to access our school's page: Accelerated Reader  

If you are struggling to access this at home please do let me know.

Mathletics homework has been set for all pupils and should be completed by Friday each week.  Comprehension homework should also be returned to be marked in class, on your homework day.

Century log-ins have been sent home with all students.  Century work is tailored to each child's particular needs and can be completed at home as well as in school.




Remote Learning

We have migrated our online learning onto our remote learning platform 'Microsoft Teams'. Click the link below to login and access our online learning.  A guidance video is available from our 'Remote Learning' page. This can be accessed by clicking the red 'Home Learning' tabs above.

Getting on Teams



If you are working at home at the moment I hope that you are able to access your maths online and you have keeping up with the reading and writing that was sent home. Check TEAMs for a daily message on where you should be up to with your work.

Take care, Mrs Boden
