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 spring term introduces our sessions entitled News Room!


In Spanish we will be finding out about spanish phonics and finish with finding out about sports.

Books this Autumn Term

Our focus books this term are The Explorer by Katherine Rundell. 

From his seat in the tiny aeroplane, Fred watches as the mysteries of the Amazon jungle pass by below him. He has always dreamed of becoming an explorer, of making history and of reading his name amongst the lists of great discoveries. If only he could land and look about him.

As the plane crashes into the canopy, Fred is suddenly left without a choice. He and the three other children may be alive, but the jungle is a vast, untamed place. With no hope of rescue, the chance of getting home feels impossibly small.

Except, it seems, someone has been there before them .

Kensuke‚Äôs Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. I disappeared on the night before my twelfth birthday. Kensuke's Kingdom is a gripping adventure from the author of War Horse.


In Science, we will be learning about Solids, Liquids and Gases.


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