A few reminders:

  • Bring a reading book to school each day. Children can borrow one from the class library or bring their own
  • PE and swimming are both on Tuesday this half-term. Please ensure you have the necessary school PE and swimming kit.
  • Homework will be given on Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week in both maths and English or topic related work. Some homework may involve research or learning poems/facts
  • Children should bring a school water bottle if they wish to hydrate outside of break times
  • It may be helpful for your child to have a small diary where they can record homework activities or make a note of other important information


This half term the children will finish studying Goodnight Mister Tom.

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.


The children will be learning about the properties and changes of materials this term.


The children will be studying Ancient Greece during Autumn 2.


In Autumn 1, the children studied the geography of the United Kingdom.
