They will try different lessons as a taster experience as next year they will attend for 3 days if it is their chosen high school. They will need to bring a packed lunch. We will be leaving at 9am and arriving back at 3pm before the end of school.

Update: One of the lessons  will be PE so they will need to wear their Pe kit to school on Thursday.

We are studying the Victorians for the summer term in History, although this is linked with many other subjects. We will be reading a book called 'Cogheart' by Peter Bunzl in literacy, a fantastic dystopian story set in Victorian Britain. We will be looking at Victorian artists in Art.

In Science, we are going to be studying living things and their habitats and Animals. We are going to be doing lots of hands on activities and experiments. Starting with, cloning plants!

Musical Instruments

All instruments need to be in school every Thursday.

We will be learning our brass instruments on Thursday afternoons at 2.30. Please make sure that you have your instrument in school!! I would recommend that you all take home your instruments each week and practice as much as you can. I am learning the trumpet too and have found that even playing for 5 minutes whenever I can has really helped me to improve. Practice makes perfect!


This term we will be having our PE sessions on Monday afternoon and Wednesday morning. Please ensure your child has their PE kit on these days. 


I send out a maths homework each week (relating to what is being taught in class that week). These are given out every Friday and due back on the following Wednesday.

This term, your child will be bringing home a spelling/handwriting book. Each Wednesday they will each write the correct spelling for words that they have spelt incorrectly over the past week. At home, they need to neatly write this spelling across the double page spread in their book. 

Mental Arithmetic

As a class, we all need to work on our mental arithmetic and building up speed and fluency. 

There are some websites that you can access from home which will help a lot in speeding up our recall of basic number facts and timestables.

These are: - The daily 10 - Hit the Button - Multiplication game
