Happy New Year! We hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday and are feeling rested and ready to start the Spring Term... We have lots more exciting learning opportunities coming up - we will keep you updated with these. This half term in English we will be following the Power of Reading and looking at 'The London Eye Mystery.' In Maths we will begin by working on fractions. Science will focus on 'Everyday Materials', and we are travelling across to North America for Geography (no longer called Project.)
Please check our web page regularly for any updates and come and speak to us before or after school if you have any questions. 
We are hoping to take Year Five on various trips to support their learning through the academic year. We will endeavour to give you as much notice as possible and greatly appreciate volunteers who are able to come with us and make these trips possible - please see letters section below for dates.
