Welcome back!  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and I am looking forward to starting a new school year with you all.  Hopefully it will be a more normal year than the last couple too!  


Our first class text is Once, by Morris Gleitzman.  I won't give too much away but it is a fantastic book that links in really well with our WW2 topic!  


Once (Once/Now/Then/After) : Gleitzman, Morris: Books


Our topics for this term are:

Maths: Place Value, The Four Functions, Fractions, Geometry.

English: Setting and Character Descriptions, Journalistic Writing, Discussion, Play Scripts, Non-Chronological Reports, War Poetry,  Recounts.

Geography: Plastic Pollution - Is plastic waste and a lack of sustainability leading us towards global disaster?

History: World War 2 - What impact did WW2 have on the local area and cities?


Our PE days are currently Tuesday and Friday.  Please ensure your child has a spare set of clothes to change into afterwards, as they may get sweaty and lessons take place regardless of weather (within reason!)


Each week, one member of the class will prepare and deliver a short presentation on a topic of their choice.  Last year, we had a very wide range of topics: Poland, the lower half of a horse's leg, ways the world could end, Phil Foden, cricket... The choices are endless!  These are completed each Friday.
