Autumn 2017


Welcome back to school and to our new term together! This half term we are investigating volcanoes around the world, understanding how they are formed and the impact they can have on people and the environment.



PE: This half term our PE Days are MONDAY and FRIDAY. Please make sure children have their PE kits in school. We will be doing PE outdoors and so children will need jogging bottoms and a jumper for the cold weather, as well as suitable footwear.


Reading: Reading is so important and children should try to read as often as possible. Please write in their reading records to record any home reading. In our classroom, we have a reading corner as well as a mini-library, where children can borrow books during the day and take them home to read.



Spelling: Children will be given new spellings to learn each week and will be tested on Fridays.


Homework: Please see the links below. Homework is due in at the end of each half term. We look forward to seeing the work children have created at home!

Investigation Station


In our class, we have an 'Investigation Station', where puzzles and riddles are left for children to solve. Children use maths, science and literacy skills to solve riddles, crack codes and conduct experiments, earning house points for their efforts.


This half term, children will be using their code cracking and number skills to complete the £100 Word Challenge, using a coded alphabet to create words of a monetary value.
