We have started with our ‘Dynamic Dynasties’ topic, where the children are taken on a journey through the bloodthirsty emperors of Ancient China. After this, we explore agriculture in our ‘Sow, Grow and Farm’ topic before moving onto ‘Ground Breaking Greeks’.
This year, we are working in smaller Maths and English groups, with tailored work for each child. They will be set homework every Friday, which is to be returned the following Tuesday. Furthermore, they will be expanding their vocabulary as they learn a new set of spellings every week, being tested every Friday.
Our fantastic Science topic sees the children exploring the world around them, Firstly, they are looking at the Forces before moving onto Earth and Space. As they build their knowledge of the Solar System and our planet, we will move onto Animals (including Humans) and Materials (and their properties).
The children are encouraged to read at home daily and practise their Times Tables, fluency in both of these will have a hugely positive impact on all their work throughout the Year.
