There is no homework next week as Half Term is approaching. Therefore, please focus on practising spellings and readings.

Here are the spellings in order or weeks

Spellings for this week (23.5.22):

Test is on Friday 27th May











There are quite a few spellings set every week, so if needed, it would be good to learn 3 or 4 really well to ensure that the spelling pattern is understood! 


This week we will be focusing on fractions and looking at halves and quarters of numbers.


We are looking at the book The King who banned the dark by Emily Haworth-Booth. We will be writing a story describing how the Queen wants to ban silence.


Our topic this term is “Light Up the World” it is a thematic unit based around the sun and other sources of light, with a science focus. Pupils will look at solar power and how to save electricity, as well as learning about sun safety and the importance of protecting both the skin and eyes. They will also learn about how shadows are formed when solid objects block light. Nocturnal animals will also be introduced in this unit.


Christian Value

Our Christian Value this term is Acts of Service 

What acts of service can you do? Can you help a neighbour, volunteer in the community, do something nice for your parents?
