This term our topic will be Eureka!Use the links below to look at our curriculum map and topic homework for now until the Easter break. 

Please ensure that you have your P.E. kits in school on Monday and Thursday. It is also helpful to have it in school on other days should we have extra PE activities. 


Just a few reminders:


  • Ensure that hair which can be tied back is using a hair or uniform coloured band.
  • No nail varnish.
  • Plain stud earrings only please.
  • You may also wear a watch.
  • Earrings and watches must be removed for P.E.





After reading the first page of Misery Guts by Morris Gleitzman, we thought about the strategies the author used. We then wrote using his structure for our own writing. 


Keith’s heart was pounding.

Calm down, he thought. You’re not robbing a bank. You’re not kidnapping anybody. You’re just painting a fish and chip shop orange.

He looked up and down his street, peering into the early morning fog.

Everything was grey. Grey houses. Grey shops. Grey cars. Grey blocks of flats looming up into a grey sky.

The cold air was making his ears hurt.

Today (10.10.19) we learnt about what life was life for an Anglo Saxon child and then went outside to make our own slingshots for hunting. We tried to use natural resources but there were some modern day materials that are just too useful to ignore!
