 In class, we are learning...

Cross-Curricular Theme

 This term we are looking at 'Trading Places'. This theme investigates how and why people trade. We are also looking at how trade effects different countries and who benefits from trading fairly. 

We are also taking part in the Junior Apprentice. Each child is in a group where they will compete to make as much profit as possible by designing and selling a product.



We are looking at the conditions that allow bacteria to flourish and which areas of the school contain the most and least bacteria. 







To add variables to adapt a game

To design and create a scratch (2 lessons)


Later in the term....


  • Complete data collection and analysis.
  • Select, collect, check accuracy and analyse the data through selecting appropriate data manipulation tools, and present results.
  • Solve problems by manipulating and interrogating data and present their findings.
  • Question the integrity of data and identify where data may be compromised.





Religious Education

. We are learning all about Sikhism, its beginnings,  the beliefs that Sikhs hold and how they show commitment to their religion. 




 We are looking at discussion texts and focusing on creating a balanced argument based on whether a wall should be built between America and Mexico. 



 We are looking at calculation: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division including with decimals and fractions. 







 PE days

Please can children have correct Pe kit in school forTuesday and Thursday. White t-shirt, blue or black shorts and appropriate footwear for both indoor and outdoor PE.  I am more than happy for children to wear jogging bottoms for outdoor PE when it is cold, but please can these be dark and plain.

Children will need to tie their hair back and ALL jewelery must be removed (earrings may be covered with tape)







This week the spelling rule for Miss Stell's set is:

 This week the spelling rule for Mr Moon's and Mr Ridd's set is:


This week (Jan 2017) the spelling rule for Mr Moon's and Mr Ridd's set is:

Words ending –able or –ible (-ibly/-ably)

For example:

possibly, incredibly, comfortable, capable, possible, terrible, horrible, workable

As a general rule, words that are complete words already add 'able': comfort --> comfortable

whereas words that are incomplete add 'ible' : poss ---> possible
