We can’t wait to take you to the land of Narnia for or English text, ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe ‘ by C.S.Lewis. The children will be studying the text and producing many pieces of writing based on the book. Who knows, they may even get to sample some hot chocolate and Turkish Delight when they meet the White Witch!

During the afternoons, the children will be looking at the World War Two in autumn one, then The Vikings in autumn two.  For science we will be studying the circulatory system and how exercise can keep us healthy. We will be creating some graffiti art linked to street art and studying the music, Happy by Pharrell Williams.

In the back of your children reading diary you will find their login details for Times Tables Rock Stars and Myon. We can’t wait to set the children times tables and reading challenges which they will be able to access from home!

 

 

Please could we remind you that spellings are given out weekly, children will be tested on the spelling patterns on a Friday. There is an expectation to read at least 3 times a week, let’s be the year group with the highest word count this year!
