This half term, we will be revising mathematical concepts including; number and place value, calculation, measurement, fractions and decimals, statistics and geometry.


Our science, this half term, will involve living things and their habitats. We will examine the life cycle of different animals; insects, mammals, amphibians and birds. We will look at the differences between these.


This half term, our key question is, 'What do religious texts and teachings say about God and human lives?'

We had visitors from Hurstwood Church and Capernray Bible College. Our visitors were from different countries worldwide and they shared stories from the bible and taught us their meaning and the key message.
