Spring 2 Term

During this half term English lessons will be based around the beautiful book, Journey. This is a very clever book which actually has no words. It does have some wonderful pictures though, which helps light your imagination and creativity. We will also be reading a selection of Tilly Mint stories to help develop our vocabulary. 

We are looking at a non fiction book in Guided Reading about British Isles and discussing how this is set out differently to a story book.

Our topic contiues to be Ancient Egypt and we will be looking at leaders and in particular Tutankhamun this half term. We will build upon the knowledge we gained last half term during our guided reading sessions. In Science we will start a new topic all about light. We will be asking questions such as What is a light source? What happens if there is no light? How do we see things? How are shadows formed and can they change?  

Homework will be set on Seesaw and will consist of an English activity each week and a Maths activity either on Seesaw or Mathletics. Please watch this video if you are unsure of how to use Seesaw.

Children are also expected to read 5 times a week, 20 minutes a day. 


Our homework will be set using the app SeeSaw. For your child to use Seesaw, the app needs your child’s name in order to be able to associate work like their photos, videos or voice recordings with their account. Seesaw only uses this information to provide the service and doesn’t advertise in Seesaw, create profiles of students, or share or sell your child’s personal information or journal content.

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in order for your child to use Seesaw, school must get your consent. We ask that parents/carers email school on to give your written consent.


We will need you to email:

· Your child’s full name

· Their year group

· Their class name

· Your written consent that they can use Seesaw.


Once we have received your email and consent, we can then email you back with your child’s QR code/home learning text code and information.


If you require paper versions of any pieces of work set on Seesaw, please speak to your child’s class teacher,




PE days are Thursday and Friday starting w/c 21st September and children should come to school in their PE kits.
