Half term Focus:

To start with, we are using a portal tale ‘Elf Road’ to learn how to write a ‘portal story’.  We will be focussing on setting description and will be using expanded noun phrases, linking ideas across paragraphs using adverbials of time and learning how to use commas for parenthesis.


In the later part of this half term, we will be working on our non-fiction writing. We will be exploring an instructions text ‘How to cook a rainbow’ and then we will be writing our own set of instructions based on something we have been learning in other areas of the curriculum.  

Class story: The Lion the Witch and The Wardrobe  

Guided Reading: Cloud Busting  


   Spelling Shed homework will be set each Friday to complete at least 5 games.  Children's log in details are in their home school diaries. 


To access the reading cloud and order your favourite books into the library, click below:

Books are issued for two weeks at a time but can be returned earlier. If your child wishes to keep a book for longer than two weeks, please send it in to school and your child can place it in the library box with a post-it note so that it can be renewed.


You can check which books your child currently has on loan along with the return dates on Reading Cloud. Log-in details are in the front of your child's home-school diary. If a book has got lost, we ask for a £5 contribution towards replacing the book. Please speak to your child's class teacher.


Children should come to school in their PE kits on a Monday and Wednesday. Children should wear their colour T-shirt of the planet group they're in with blue shorts and trainers. Plain blue, black, or grey tracksuit bottoms or leggings and a similar sweatshirt (no logos please) should be worn as the weather becomes colder. If you prefer, your child can wear their school jumper or cardigan.



In computing this half term we are designing and programming a platform game using scratch.  The children will play the following example of a platform game before designing their own:
