Spring Topics 


During the first half of term, we will begin with the theme – Awesome Australia. In this Unit, pupils will be exploring Australia, home to the kangaroo, koala and many other animals and birds. We will be diving deep into the Barrier Reef to see what amazing and beautiful fish live amongst the colourful corals. We will be following the adventures of Captain James Cook who discovered this incredible country.


Just prior to half term our theme will change to – Spectacular Space. Throughout this Unit, pupils will have the opportunity to study the planets and also to follow the amazing journeys of the first man on the moon and the first British man in space.


In March, we progress onto our theme – To the Rescue. This Unit helps pupils to develop an understanding of the rescue services, with particular reference to rescue at sea and how modern services have been developed from their early beginnings. The famous rescue by Grace Darling and her father will be considered and compared with modern systems.


General Reminder

P.E this term will be on a Friday afternoon. 

Homework will be given out on a Friday and should be returned to school by the following Wednesday. 

Children should read their book each night and return their reading book and home/school reading diary to school every day. We will change reading books when the book is finished and a parent has recorded this in the home/school reading diary. Remember it is important for children to understand the story, they can discuss the story, ask questions, talk about characters etc.  Reading targets are in the front of the home/school reading diary.

Please name all parts of your child’s uniform and P.E kit.
