We hope you all had a good holiday and are now all refreshed and ready for the start of this year.
During the year we will be looking at 'Big Ideas', which starts off during Autumn term with British Culture (Democracy, Rule of Law) & Ambition, Tragedy and Despair. During the Spring term, we will be looking at Adventures, Life Skills and Abandonment. We finish our Summer term by looking at Strong female leaders, Fairness & Equality and Friendship, Loneliness & Belonging.

Educational Trips and Visits

During this year, we have several visits and trips planned, which include Sherwood Forest, a visit from the Royal Shakespeare Company, visit Tywcross Zoo,  a Celts and Romans day & a trip to the Holocaust Museum.
More details regarding each of these will be provided via MarvellousMe nearer the time.

Maths! No Problem

In Maths, we will be following the Maths! No Problem program.


Each week, your child will have a set of words to learn and remember. Please do spend just 5 minutes a day going over their spellings with them.


The autumn term starts with our online safety sessions, which are part of the Digital citizenship & technology lesson. We follow this up with Cars.

Books this Autumn Term

Our focus books this term are Outlaw by Michael Morpurgo. 

After a fierce storm, a boy discovers a human skull, buried beneath the roots of an ancient tree. A skull with a legendary story…

Vivid re-imagining of the legendary hero Robin Hood

Macbeth by William Shakespeare. Macbeth himself, a brave warrior, is fatally impelled by supernatural forces, by his proud wife, and by his own burgeoning ambition. As he embarks on his murderous course to gain and retain the crown of Scotland, we see the appalling emotional and psychological effects on both Lady Macbeth and himself. 


In Science, we will be learning about Mechanisms and the differences between life cycles.


P.E. takes place every week on Wednesday afternoons. Please ensure that your child has their bag with them.


In Spanish we will be finding out about Telling the Time, Food & Drink and giving opinions of different foods
