Multiplication times table checker









 We encourage all children to read each night and record it in their reading diaries. If they read for four nights a week, they move up the reward ladder in class and earn a token for their house. If they read for five nights a week, they move straight to the top of the reward ladder, earn a token for their house and get a raffle ticket in the jar! At the end of the term, I'll pull one raffle ticket out and the winner will receive a £10 Gift Card!


Spring 2 winner is....

Well done! Keep reading.




Class Reading book


We are currently reading...



Podkin is the son of a warrior chieftain. He knows that one day it will be up to him to lead his warren and guard it in times of danger. But for now, he's quite happy to laze around annoying his older sister Paz, and playing with his baby brother Pook.

Then Podkin's home is brutally attacked, and the young rabbits are forced to flee. The terrifying Gorm are on the rampage, and no one and nowhere is safe. With danger all around them, Podkin must protect his family, uncover his destiny, and attempt to defeat the most horrifying enemy rabbitkind has ever known.


Our current Power of Reading book is the classic children's story The lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.  








In maths, we have been using equipment and working together to solve adding and subtraction calculations of 4 digit numbers with exchanging. They have been working super hard! 





Our first topic of the year is the Vikings. We will find out why they invaded Britain, what it was like to live in a Viking village and discover what they were like as people. 



Have a look at the work we have produced so far...


We have been delighted with some of the homework so far, take a look at these Viking shields!


We recently visited the Jorvik Viking Centre in York. We had a fantastic time and the experience really brought our topic to life. Have a look at some of the pictures from the day...


This term, we are studying all things to do with the exciting Ancient Egyptians. We will be looking at mummies, pyramids, gods and how the Ancient Egyptians lived. So far, we have used water colours to create fantastic sunset silhouettes of the pyramids.
