This term we will be answering the question ‘What is a Christian and what do they believe?’



This term we will prepare our own vegetable/ fruit using equipment to prepare their fruit/ vegetable and evaluate their product.


In computing

This term we will be looking at technology around us and how this impacts our lives.  



In PE we will be looking at the fundamental skills practising and developing these skills to enable us to use them in small games.

Children have PE twice a week.

Please ensure that your child has a sensible PE kit, including trainers in school for PE lessons on Mondays and Tuesday. This PE kit can them be kept in school for the remainder of the half term so that children have it in school when they need it. 




Homework is set on a weekly basis for Spellings and Number facts. The spellings and timestables are sent out via the apps (Spelling Shed and Timestables Rockstars) and can be accessed at home.  All children have log ins for both sites.  These need to be completed at least daily, to ensure the children get the best opportunities to succeed. 




Reading is a life skill, so it is so important that your child reads on a daily basis. Please make sure that your child reads every single night. Encourage them to read a variety of different books. Record how they read in their reading records.

*Ask your child questions about the book e.g.

-Can you predict what will happen next?

-Can you describe how the character might be feeling?

-Can you summarise the key points in the story?

-Is this fiction or non-fiction? How do you know?

 Reading books must be in school every day so that their progress can be monitored and their name moved up the class reading tree, the children will also need to read during the day. 



-Encourage your child to practice times tables at home.

-Ask your child mental maths questions as often as possible e.g. when you are sat in the car/ walking to school/ sat together at home. You could ask them additions, subtractions, doubles etc.

-Ask any siblings if they can remember a maths game that they played in school and encourage them to play together to make maths fun.
