Our Learning

Please use the links below to learn more about the topics we will be learning about this year.

Autumn - Monarchs
We travel through time in this history topic which gives us an overview of some significant British monarchs since 1066 before focusing on the reign of Henry VIII. Using drama, we find out how the Tudors came to power and how they maintained their rule. Then, we learn about different aspects of Henry VIII’s reign, including significant social and religious changes. During a visit to the Tower of London, we find out about the six wives of Henry VIII and crime and punishment in Tudor times.

Spring - Changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age
In this unit the children will be introduced to the concept of pre-history. They will explore the changes in Britain from the Stone Age through the Bronze Age up to the end of the Iron Age. The children will gain a sense of wider history by creating timelines of major events. They will then go on to investigate each of the three periods, looking at daily live and homes, tools and farming as well as other key features of life. They will then go on to discuss those key features and how Britain has changed, discussing which time period would have been better to live in. This brilliant history topic offers lots of great opportunities for us to explore two major historical concepts, change and continuity.

Summer - Disasters
In this explosive Geography topic, we discover how natural disasters, such as volcanoes and earthquakes, occur and the impact they can have on the environment and humans. This leads on to work investigating the role people can play in preventing and worsening disasters. We also continue to develop our map reading skills and locational knowledge by researching where disasters happen and why they are more likely to happen in certain areas of the world.

Home Learning

Thank you for your support with the children’s home learning so far, it really makes a difference!

Literacy: Children will be given literacy homework each week, this will be set on a Friday and is due in on the following Wednesday.

Maths: Maths homework is assigned via the Mathletics system.  The homework will be set on a Friday and is due on the following Wednesday.

Reading: All children should read each evening.  Whatever your child’s level of ability, please commit to reading with or hearing him / her read at least once a week.

A record of your child's reading should be kept in their reading record. We ask that three entries a week are made in their reading records, at least one by an adult. Reading journals should be brought into school everyday.

Even if your child is a fluent reader, please read with him/her as often as possible and discuss what he/she is reading. This will help to develop comprehension and reasoning skills as well as enjoyment. Please click here for a list of question to aid you when reading with your child.

Topic Work: Sometimes the children will be asked to attempt tasks linked to science / history / geography being studied in class. These may be quick tasks that can be done overnight or longer pieces to be completed over a half term.
