Spring Term

What have we done this term to make us proud?

This term we have visited Chasewater and found out about trains from the 1900s for our ‘Railway Children’ topic. We were acknowledged by the public for being so sensible and well behaved on our trip. We are also proud of the improvements we have made in our reading and were excited to show off our skills to Nursery on World Book Day!


 What have we been learning about this term?

This term we have been learning about the ‘Railway children’, we looked specifically at David Hockney and his art. We have also been  thinking about ‘Was it better to live in the Stone Age, Bronze Age or Iron Age?’, we particularly enjoyed looking at Skara Brae—the Neolithic settlement in Scotland. Then we also looked at ‘How did the ancient Greeks influence our lives today?’ with things such as democracy, architecture, the Olympics and theatre.


What will we be learning about in the Summer term?


· How do magnets work?

· Where do humans get their nutrients from?

· Where and why do people make pilgrimages?

· How was life in Baghdad in 900AD different to life in England?

· Why do some people think Jesus is inspirational?

· What can you eat in the garden?



We will become confident in using our 3,4 and 8 times tables. We will also be consolidating our understanding of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. This will then help us to solve problems that involve these four operations. 


We will be focussing on using the correct tense and becoming more independent at using the appropriate punctuation consistently in our writing. We will also be looking at a range of non-fiction texts and their specific features.
