Autumn Term 1 - Information



Our topic for this term is all about the human circulatory system and our investigative title is 'What Keeps Us Beating'.  It is a science based topic, so we will be conducting some experiments and will be in need of some supplies so please keep your eyes open for messages sent via Ping! Please see the topic web (below) for further information about our learning this term.   



PE will be on Thursday afternoons (with Mr Shooman) and Wednesday afternoons afternoons (with Mrs Greenough).  Please ensure that the children come into school on these days wearing their school PE kit: shorts or tracksuit bottoms (depending on the weather), trainers, school jumper or fleece.   



Homework will be set weekly on a Friday and is expected to be handed into school the following Friday.  This gives the children a week to ensure it is completed.  This will also be posted on Google Classroom so that it is accessible at all times for everyone.

I will be available at lunchtimes should anyone need any further help with what has been set.  I will only set homework as a recap of learning so the children will have had lessons in school that relate to the home work set.  As well as the weekly work set (in the CGP books provided), children are also expected to participate in daily reading, spelling and maths practice as outlined below.


Maths - times table rock stars can be used to help with number fluency as well as a number of online maths games that you can find here. 


Reading - The children have each been set up with access to an account through which provides short quizzes to assess their comprehension skills. The children are also expected to engage with daily reading at home, books from school can be taken home for reading pleasure.


Spelling - Weekly spellings will link to a website called where the children can access online tests to assist them with their learning.
