This term's learning powers theme is ‘Me as a learner’. 

We will be learning about different ways that we learn best as well as learning how to take greater responsibility for our own learning.






This term in English we will focusing on the story ‘Robin Hood' and ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’. We will be making predictions and discussing characters based on descriptive language.


We will continue concentrating on: amazing adjectives, adverbs, direct speech, connectives and presentation.


We are also continuing to use the racetrack. Every time your child reads at home, they can sign a box in the track. Once it is complete, your child can claim a free book. We will be doing lots of reading in class this term with our coloured book bands.

We are focusing on skills such as:

  • Prediction – what will happen next
  • Inference – using pictures to say what is happening
  • Summary – What happened so far
  • Layout – Features of the text (chapters, contents)






In Maths, this term we will be learning about:

All pupils should continue to practise their times tables using Times Table Rock Stars. Every child has a log in but please ask your child's teacher if you would like a copy.







The theme for Spring Term is ‘Castles’. We will be learning about classifying different animals based on the type of animal and features they have. We will use search engines to find information on our curriculum theme. We will be making items for our WOW display to represent castles.
