Staff: Mrs Oliver, Mrs Hempsall and Miss Barber.

Our PE days are: Tuesday and Thursday. Remember to arrive at school wearing your PE kit on these days.  It is preferred that your child remove their ear-rings on P.E days, however a box is provided for safe keeping or tape can be applied.

Our class text this half term is Perry Angel's Suitcase by Glenda Millard


Reading books will be changed on a Friday although we will be reading other books and texts every day in the class. It is also good practice for the children to read the same book more than once so please don’t be surprised if they bring the same book home again another time. We are working hard to develop reading fluency and confidence.   The school expects children to read at least 3 times a week at home.  This only needs to be for 10 minutes or 4 pages.  

Science -This half term will be learning all about Electricity.  We will learn how to create a series circuit to light a bulb/motor/buzzer and how to insert a switch.  We will also talk about conductors and insulators.

Computing – This term we will be learning to log on to programs quickly and navigate the different areas e.g. Teams, Reading Plus, Nessy.

Humanities- This term we will learn about water.  We have a talk with Yorkshire Water planned to find out about how water is cleaned.

Design and Technology- We will be baking a plain biscuit initially then adapting the recipe to make it more appealing.

In class we also use a number of online platforms including Numbots, Reading Plus, Times Table Rockstars, Nessy, Teams, Developing Experts  and Epic! (please see weblinks below)

Logins for all of these are available in your child’s planner – if you are not sure about these, please ask.
