All children should bring their reading book each day, at home.

Children will bring home their spelling every Friday.  Please ensure children read at home regularly and practise their spellings daily.

Throughout this term we are reading The Time Travelling Cat and the Egyptian Goddess by Julia Jarman in our ’Reading for Meaning’ sessions.  We will be developing our grammar skills and will write a variety of genres, including biography and narrative.




We are going to be looking at multiplications and shapes.

Please remember to learn all the Multiplication facts-this will help you in all  areas of Mathematics!

Your child will have been given their TTRockstars login—if possible, this should be used daily to improve multiplication recall. No app is required—only your usual internet browser.




We are really looking forward to learning about Forces and Plants.
