Our Spring term topic is 'Natural Disasters' and we will be investigating the different forms of natural disasters, the damage they can cause and how they start.


For the first half of Spring term, PE will be every Wednesday afternoon with NUFC and Friday morning doing gymnastics with Marie-Claire. Then, on a Thursday afternoon in the second Spring term. 


Homework will continue to be sent home on a Friday and must be handed in by the following Wednesday. You should read your reading books and sign the Reading Together Book every night and return it to school to be signed every day. 


Mrs Deadman will continue to be with the class on Monday and Wednesday afternoons, teaching you Music, French and Science.

Spring Term Natural Disasters

In our 'Natural Disasters' topic we will be investigating the different disasters, taking a look into how they are started, what they look like and how they can have an impact on the land, people and other living things. In art we will be researching the different sketches and paintings on natural disasters, to inspire our own sketches. In DT we will be creating a shelter from clay to survive against a hurricane.

Autumn Term Stone Age

We will be investigating the historical events in the Stone Age and learning all about the people who lived in that time period. Looking at the lifestyle of these Neanderthals and how they survived the dangerous animals. We will also be researching and locating key and famous Stone Age sites, trying to discover more about them. In Art we will be using natural ingredients to make cave paintings. In DT we will be creating a Stone Age hut from clay and create an advertisement for it.

We had great fun at Palace Green Library improving our knowledge on The Stone Age

We used natural ingredients to create our own paints and then made our own Stone Age cave art.

Anti-Bullying Week

This week we have been holding discussions about bullying and how we can be a part of our schools community to make a difference. The children have come up with their superhero personas and how they can make a difference. The children have taken it upon themselves to invite children to play games with them, asking others if they are ok and reporting any signs of bullying. We are all coming together to put a stop to bullying! 

Multi-Faith Day

For Multi-Faith Day we have been learning all about Hinduism, in particular Diwali. The children had great fun learning all about Diwali. We looked at what Diwali means, how it is celebrated and the traditions that Hindus follow during this Festival of Light. We did a report on Diwali, created our own Rangoli patterns and Mehndi hand patterns.

Rememberance Day

This week we have been paying our respects to the brave people who serve and have served in the war. The children have decorated and made poppies, writing words on them that pay their respects.

In our Stone Age topic we will be investigating the historic timeline, key events and historic Stone Age remains. We will also be looking at the way of life for people during this time, looking into the food they ate, tools they made, houses they built and how they survived with what they had.

In a geographical point of view we will be identifying the different counties in which remains have been found and the change in landscape. Leading us into why people had to move due to the constant change in weather and landscape. Also, evaluating where settlements have been found and understanding why people chose these particular locations, such as Skara Brae.

In Art & DT we will be getting creative by sketching Stonehenge, creating our own settlements, cave painting and even painting using berries and charcoal.

In Maths we have been working hard with our place value unit, identifying the value of 3-digit number and being able to recognise and represent them in different ways.

We are also working hard in our addition and subtraction unit, looking at adding and subtracting 1-digit, 2-digit and 3-digit numbers with a 3-digit number. These have crossed the boundaries where we have had to exchange and borrow from the tens and hundreds column.

We will also be looking at missing number problems and written word problems within this unit.

We have enjoyed and learnt a lot in our P.E lessons this Autumn term with NUFC!

Maiden Castle Tri-Golf Festival

We visited Maiden Castle to take part in a Tri-Golf Festival where we worked on our golf skills and had a lot of fun!

Hoopstarz taught us how to hula-hoop and have fun whilst being active.

Zumba with Gemma was hard work but we had lots of fun dancing to diffent styles of music πŸ•ΊπŸ’ƒ
