Homework is set on Seesaw on a Monday and is to be completed in your orange home/school books and uploaded onto Seesaw to be checked by Friday. If your child requires papercopies please let me know and these can be provided.

Reading Books

Reading books are given out each Wednesday and are to be returned the following Monday. Children are to complete their book and pick two reading tasks to complete. Please return your reading for pleasure book once you complete it so you can choose a new one.

Please look at the photographs below to see some of the things we have been doing this term.

WW1 Remembrance Webinar

Today, we took part in a webinar to learn about how WW1 started. This was a great introduction to our new History topic. We ended the session with our 2 minute silence to remember all the soldiers past and present that have fought in wars. 


We have been learning how to play along with the song ‘Living on a Prayer.’ We have been playing together as an ensemble using flutes and glockenspiels. 

The Write Stuff

Today, we worked with our partners to create our own plans ready for our independent poetry write tomorrow.

Art skills

We created our own collage out of sweet and crisp packets. We then sketched what we could see, coloured it, enlarged it and used colour mixing to create our final pieces.
