Our Topic this term is ‘Out of this World!’

Throughout this topic we are going to be looking at the Earth and space. We will be exploring the size, shape and movement of the Earth within the solar system. Also we will discover how we have day and night and the seasons. In addition, we will be looking at historic events including the Apollo 11 mission and the space race between the USSR and the USA. 

Our class guided reading book this term is ‘Cosmic’ by Frank Cottrell Boyce. Please feel free to buy a copy for your child, but please do not read ahead! However, it would be extremely beneficial for your children to discuss the events and themes in the chapter they are currently reading in class.


Our PE days will be Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. Please make sure your child has full, labelled, PE kit in school for the whole week, including trainers and socks, on these days. 


During the academic year your child will have homework each week.  This is intended to help them consolidate the learning that takes place during lesson time.  It is important then that you allow your children time at home to complete these tasks and where you can talk to your child to ensure they understand the importance of them.

Homework will be handed out every Friday and taken in every Friday. Spellings will be set on a Monday afternoon for a test on Friday. Spelling lists for the term and the weekly pages set from the CGP books can be found on the Spelling page and Weekly Home Learning page respectively.

We also have a high regard at school for reading books.  All children have the opportunity to take a reading book home so please ensure that your child reads as much as they can.  One way of ensuring this is to get your child to read aloud to you at home as much as possible.
