Summer Term




We have been writing flashback stories based on 'The Piano'- a short film by Aidan Gibbons. A lot of our English work this term will be linked to our Trench Brother's History Project. Please spend time researching WW1. Find out as much as you can about what life was like for the soldiers and the people back home.  


We continue to work on fractions. We are now learning how to multiply fractions and doing further work on finding fractions of amounts. We have learned different methods for working with fractions. It is important to find the method that works best for you and practice it. We are also learning about decimals and percentages this term.

It is essential that all children are confident with all times tables up to 12 x 12, to be able to do this work. 



We are looking at the parables and sayings of Jesus. What message do these contain for the way we should live our lives today? 




This term's topic is WW1 and is closely linked to our Trench Brother's History project. We are focusing on the roles of ethnic minority forces in the war. 



 We had a fabulous time at the Space Centre! See pictures above.  Our new topic is, 'Do all plants and animals start life as an egg?'
