Dear Families

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all. Thank you very much for all your Christmas wishes, gifts and cards; they are very much appreciated.


Our topic this term is ‘Great Explorers’.


In English we will be focussing our writing around the text Treasure Island which will lead into our trip to the New Vic theatre.


In Topic we will be focussing on significant individuals, Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong. We will research where they explored, when, how they travelled and how their findings have changed life for us.


Our Science topic is animals including humans. We will be learning about animals and their offspring, find out about and describe the basic needs of animals, including humans, for survival and the importance for humans of exercise, eating the right amounts of different types of food, and hygiene.

Please can I remind you of the importance of listening to your child read at home.
