The Railway Children

This term we will be studying this book. Remember to look up words that you do not understand. Please make sure that this book is in school everyday and that your child does not read beyond the asked chapters.


Please ensure your child keeps up-to-date with reading activities, so that they can participate fully with classroom activities.


Children will have arithmetic lessons when they arrive each morning, so the earlier they get in, the more time they will have to complete the tasks.

It is important that your child is confident with their times tables up to 12 x 12 so please encourage them to get as much practice as they can at home. Mathletics has lots of activities that they can use for this.


This term the children will study Earth and Space.

The posters created were amazing! See below the top three posters.Well done to Sebastian

Changes In Materials Investigation
