Welcome back to Summer Term. 


This term it is our turn for the 'Resilience trail - a fact finding poster trail set up in school where we personally discover and relate to our six personal goals of RAMCAR (Resilience, Aspiration, Morality, Cooperation, Adaptability and Respect). 


Our theme for Summer 1 is 'Railway'.  Subjects will include history, art and DT.  History will involve learning the chronlogy of the  railway and learning through different source information.  Art will involve learning the sill of capturing movement and using perspective and DT will involve learning about links and linkages within mechanical movement.


English will concentrate on journalistic writing skills.


Maths will  continue with decimals before moving onto money.


Computing will explore using the programmes of Inkscape and Scratch to complete Tessellating art.



Welcome back for the Spring Term.   Well done for the resilience shown so far.


Our Theme for the first part of this term is 'Where in the World' and this  will be Geography focussed including understanding fieldwork and the local area but will also include some Music, Art and Design & Technology.


Our second theme will be Sound and we will investigate the science and explore different sounds produced within  music as well.


English will focus on narrative writing techniques.


Maths will continue to explore multiplication & division then area.  Before moving onto fractions and decimals.


Computing will be about becoming effective bloggers before exploring an online music creation programme.
