Our main topics for the year will be “Through The Ages,” “Rocks, Relics and Rumbles,” and “Emperors and Empires.”  We are also starting a new scheme of work for RHSE called Jigsaw. If you have anything at home related to anything we are learning about in school, please feel free to bring into school to share with the rest of the class.



It is really important you try to read with your child at home as much as possible. Please try and hear your child read every day and record in their reading record when you have read with them. For our whole school reading challenge, we count all the reads that your child does with an adult in school and at home. Reads will be counted at the end of each week and they gain different certificates for the number of reads they achieve throughout the school year.



Spellings will be given out in their homework books at the beginning of each term and labelled with the date, the children will practise these in school, but these will also need practising at home. Please use the homework book to practice them in. There will then be a test every Friday morning. The spelling will be marked with the children so they will be aware of their scores. We may also give out more practical topic related homework projects throughout the year.


Times tables

All children will have a login for TT Rockstars, a fun, interactive website to help them learn their timetables. Their logins will be in their reading record books. We are able to set the correct timetables for your child and monitor usage. Timetables are a crucial part of maths. We carry out our school times tables challenge on Fridays and awards are given when children pass a level.
