English and Reading
This half term the children will be exploring the text 'The Royal Rabbits of London' by Santa and Simon Sebag Montefiore and the journey of Shylo Tawny-Tail. We will be posting updates about the children's writing and reading in the forthcoming lessons.
This term the children will become historians where they will go back to Roman Britain to explore what life was like during this era of history. The children will explore the Roman's impact on Britain and how they have influenced our lives today. We will be going on our school trip to Fishbourne Roman Palace towards the end of Summer 1 and have a Roman Theatre Workshop in Summer 2.
“Pupils should be able to recite their times tables up to 12 x 12 by the age of nine.” - OFSTED, 2014.
As a school we see the importance that times tables knowledge brings to a child's life and how it makes a noticeable impact on their maths. The children have spent all of autumn term building on their 2's, 5's and 10's including the corresponding division facts. This term the children will continue to expand their times tables knowledge by learning the 3's, 4's and 8' including the division. Children should log onto their times tables rock stars account to continue to build on their knowledge and earn points in the process.

The children have started to think about block coding by using the program ‘Scratch’. Here are some of their algorithms.
Science including Longitudinal Study
At the start of the year, the children set up a longitudinal study where they are investigating which plants grow at different times of the year in order to make our school grounds colourful. The children have been considering the right conditions plants need to grow.
In our science topic this term, the children are learning about light. They have been able to build on their knowledge of the Explorer Dome visit where they explored different light simulations.
The children have been learning to play the recorder in their music lessons. They have been working on learning simple notes and building on this to perform a tune.
