 Scavengers and Settlers

Our main topic this half term is Stone Age to Iron Age, where we will be learning about the main dates, events and characteristics of the different periods.  We will also be basing our English work around this by writing a Stone Age story and a non fiction report. 


RE Domestic Church: Family

In RE we will be exploring how God is present in every home.  This is shown in the love that keeps the family together through good times and bad times.

Science: Rocks and Soils

In Science, the children will be Rock Detectives!  They will learn about different rocks, their relationship to soils and how fossils have formed over time.

On Tuesday we were Rock Detectives and went on a hunt around school to see how rocks were used in different ways.  We learnt a lot about the reasons for different uses of rocks and that some are used for decoration. 

Home Learning

Each week, the weekly spelling list will be posted here to help support your child with their learning. These will be tested on a Friday.

Maths and English homework will be sent out each Thursday to be handed in by the following Tuesday.

Please read with your child every night and sign their reading record.
