Literacy -

This term we will all be settling into our learning with a fantastic whole-school text called 'In Our Hands' by Lucy Farfort! The text explores a world where all colour has begun to disappear and only through the hard work and efforts of a community can it return.


Following this, we will be centering our literacy around a text called 'The Barnabus Project'. Barnabus is a genetically-engineered half-mouse and half-elephant, the product of a failed laboratory experiment to create and sell the "perfect pet". Sustained in a bell jar and hidden deep below a Perfect Pet store with other failed pet creations, Barnabus dreams of freedom after being told of a wonderful world beyond the confines of the lab. After learning that they are all to be recycled, plans are set in motion to execute an escape.


Maths -


In Maths this term, all sets will be exploring place value and consolidating our understanding before building on it through this year.

Please continue to build on your child's times table knowledge from the previous year where possible. We will endeavour to share MyMaths logins when this is possible.
