Autumn Term 2019

Head Teacher Message
Welcome back to our new Autumn term. On behalf of the staff we would like to welcome you to a new school year and hope that 2019/20 is a good one for our whole school community.
I hope that you have all had the chance to read our really positive Ofsted report from June of last summer. One thing that stood out is how well our children achieve, conduct themselves and really try their very best in all lessons. Something which I’m sure you are just as proud of them as I was and indeed am!!!
Our teachers have lots of interesting activities planned for this term and hope that you will enjoy hearing what children have been working on at consultation meetings, and will support them with their homework and reading outside of school.

Our work for this term

English
In English we are learning how to write creatively, persuasively and study the content of information texts. We will be focusing on using conjunctions to extend our sentences alongside using the various key features of these text types.

Maths
In Maths we will be recapping our place value knowledge before moving into multiplication and division. We will need to really focus on our times table knowledge to help us! We will also be looking at geometry and focusing mainly on shape and symmetry.

Science
In Science we will be studying electricity.

Topic
Our topic focus will be ‘I am Warrior’ with a focus on the Romans’ so we will be focusing largely on extending our knowledge of this area. We will investigate who the Romans were, why they invaded Britain and what changes they made to our way of life.

Keeping Safe and Healthy (This section will tell you what we are teaching children about lifestyle choices)
We will continue to have our twice weekly P.E sessions to maintain our fitness levels as well as discussing what healthy eating choices we can make to help improve our all-round health. As the nights get darker and with lots of fun events coming up we will be discussing how we can make ourselves safe at night.
