Plants and cells will be our focus in science, thinking about reproduction in plants, the structure of cells and features of leaves.  


We will be continuing comparing different areas in geography thinking about London and Fort William in Scotland. We will be focusing on demographics and how an area can change over time.


In History, we will continue to learn about the Victorians, thinking particularly about the British Empire and the slave trade.


In RE, we will be moving on from learning about the concept of commitment and exploring how significant it was that Mary was Jesus’s mother.


We will be starting off with e-safety in computing, creating our own games that focus on different concepts related to e-safety. We will then move on to spreadsheets and learning how to apply their use to real life contexts.

On Charanga, children will be learning about music that makes us happy.

How can I help at home?

One of the key ways every parent can help is to ensure that your child is at school every day and on time. Other than this, the main way you can help is by ensuring that your child reads every day, for at least 30- minutes – this can be with you, or on their own, but it is the most effective way of ensuring that your child progresses and learns outside of school. Practicing times tables frequently is vital.

Children have logins for Mathletics, Literacy Planet and Purple Mash– please encourage them to use this frequently, as it will really help with their quick recall of mathematical facts.

If you have any questions, please talk to Miss Simmons, Mr Griffin, Ms Marlow, Mr Dunn or Miss Field or you can arrange a meeting via Zoom.
