We hope you have had a fun and relaxing half term!

Our new topic for this half term is 'Playlist!'. During this topic, we will be learning lots about different musical instruments and genres. In English, we will start off by looking at poetry, focusing on the rhythm of the poem and onomatopoeia to link with our topic. The children will be planning, writing and performing their own poems including these features. We will then be writing a story using a music video as inspiration. In maths, we will be continuing to learn formal methods of multiplication and division as well as fractions. We will still be practising our times tables daily up to 12 x 12. Our theme lessons this half term will focus on different types of music and the history of musical instruments from around the world. We will also be learning about the science behind how our ears allow us to hear sound and which materials are the best at conducting sound. In addition to this, we will be learning to play the recorder in music and continuing to learn about programming in computing lessons.   

Our whole school rules are:

1. Be ready

2. Be respectful

3. Be safe


Our PE days this term are a Monday and Wednesday. Please Make sure your child's PE kit is in school for these days. 


Homework is given out every Friday and due back the following Wednesday, alternating between an English and Maths focus. 

In addition to this, we focus on weekly spellings, which we ask pupils to practise alongside doing their homework. Children are also being tested on their times tables daily and we ask that they are encouraged to go over these at home as much as possible!

Reading Books

Reading books will be changed on a Wednesday each week. Children are welcome to read different books from the class book corner if they finish their book before this day.
