 Hello everyone and welcome back to those of you that have rejoined us in school.  It has been lovely to see you all back together.

PRIDE has been evident in your behaviour, your learning and your relationships with each other which has made us all very proud.

The 3 'R's

Reading, Writing and Maths will be the cornerstone of our Spring Term provision as we ready the children for transition to secondary school. Becoming fluent, competent, enthusiastic readers is the key to learning and we will seek to expose the children to a wide variety of texts, authors, styles and knowledge. Writing opportunities will link to our units of learning as well as to other inspirations which encourage the children to communicate clearly whilst developing their own voice.

In Maths, we will ensure that children's arithmetic methods are accurate and efficient and that they are able to use them to reason and problem solve. Fractions, algebra, geometry and measures will allow them to explore Maths more fully. 

Units of Learning

This term we will be learning all about the theory of evolution when we research whether we've always looked like this. We will study inherited and adapted traits, investigate how genes are and are not passed on and how species change over time. We will also investigate fossils.

Linking to our Number The Stars Book Study, we will be finding out how and why prejudice and persecution have existed throughout history and still do today. We will explore myths associated with migration, challenge stereotypes and consider how we can all contribute to making the world a better place. 


Learning from previous weeks is still available on the website so if you haven't completed it all or if you want to revisit something, please feel free to have a look. 

Don't forget the links to the apps you should be using at least three times per week at home are below - don't let those vital skills get (or stay) rusty!

PE will be outdoors every Tuesday and Wednesday so make sure you have your outdoor kit. It will get chilly and wet if we're not prepared.

PE lessons will focus on fitness.
