If you ever have any questions, please feel free to come and see me after school, write a note in your child's contact book, or fill out the form below.
There are some changes to homework this year so please see the below homework overview for detail. Homework will be 'set' on a Friday and should be handed in on a Wednesday. Pre-learning tasks will also be set across the term. These tasks will give children an advantage in class and will help to bring out what learners already know; what misconceptions they may have and what interests them.
Below are some key documents relating to our class.

So you can have an advantage in our lessons at school; here is a look at what we will be learning about at the start of Term 4:
- In Maths the pupils will be learning about area and perimeter.
- In our topic lessons pupils will start their learning about World War II. We will be discovering what it would have been like to be a child during the war years.
- In Science we shall be learning about animals including humans, with a particular focus on the human body and the heart.
A Child's War.
A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a Spitfire zooms overhead. Take cover! It's 1939 and Britain is at war. Deep down in the Anderson Shelter, learn why nations are fighting and why child evacuees must make the long journey from their homes and families into unknown territory.
Read the diary of Anne Frank, written whilst hiding from the terrifying stormtroopers in a secret annexe, and try to emphathise with her hopes and fears.
Make do and mend - cook up a family meal from meagre rations. Delve deep into a bygone era, when loose lips sank ships.
And, as peace is declared, let's get ready to celebrate. Mr Churchill says "It's an unconditional surrender!"
