Here are some useful reminders and links to web pages for you:


  • TTrockstars for times table practice.
  • Reading eggs for online reading and comprehension practice.
  • Mymaths for online mathematical activities.


Here are some helpful videos if you are not sure how to use seesaw:

    Class Teacher:  Mr. Keegan




    For English this half term, we are going to be covering a number of English skills whilst studying some different texts and genres. We will be recapping all the skills we have learnt this school year and putting them into practice. We will be try to put our skills to use when writing dialogue, writing for suspense and writing instructions.

     Let's get writing....


    This half term we will be revising all the maths that we have learnt this year in preparation for the upcoming SATS. We will continue to practice our times tables on TT Rockstars as this will help us with all other aspects of maths.


    Here are some useful websites:




    Our Science topic for this half term is Living things and their habitats.  The topic will begin by exploring the varieties of living things on Earth and how to classify them. We will be creating our own classification keys to help other people identify different living things. Finally, we will understand the importance of micro-organisms in our lives even though we cannot see them.




    Our Topic in RE for Summer 1 is Pentecost- Serving. We will learn about the way we live our lives, the way we treat others, and by our words and actions, show if we have an attitude of service.  Often, we are especially influenced by those whose actions speak powerfully of a life of service.


    Some key questions:

    Why does it sometimes need courage to be a witness?

    How do you know when to speak out?






    Ancient Greece.

    In our Topic this term, we are going to be learning all about the Ancient Greeks and how they have influenced our lives! We will begin by looking at the geography of Greece and how it compares to the U.K. . Next we will study the history and the contributions they have made to our lives today. We will learn about: democracy, philosophy, the Olympics and much more!






    PSHE and Mindfulness

    Inter weaved throughout all of our topics is the importance of self-care and reflection. At home we encourage you  to use a  journal to write down our thoughts, feelings and emotions which is key to regulating how we are throughout each day like we do in class. Additionally, we will post some online meditation and yoga you can practice at home.

    Key Dates


    This will be updated when school reopens.



    Homework-  Homework has now changed, and will be accessed via SeeSaw. Each week, tasks will be set on a Thursday and due in the following Thursday online. The children will receive either an English based activity, a Maths activity, spelling practice activity or a wider curriculum based activity such as RE or Science. This work can be completed on See Saw itself or in their learning logs which they can take pictures of to send in or bring the book into school to show. On occasion, work may be set on MyMaths too. 


    Reading- Reading books will be chosen from our accelerated reader scheme and will go home on a Thursday and brought back in to school on a Monday. If the book has not been completed in this time then the book can be kept at home until it has been completed but their reading logs need to be in every Monday to be checked. When the children complete their books, then they will take their online quizzes and choose a new book to take home on the Thursday. 


    In addition to this, the children also have access to Reading Eggs which is an online reading resource where the children can read online books, play games and develop their comprehension skills. 

    They also have access to TT Rockstars where they can play fun games to develop their times table knowledge.
