Welcome to Term 2!


This term our topic is Traders and Raiders and we are reading Beowulf by Sir Michael Morpurgo as our text. All of our learning is linked to our topic so we are fully immersed in Anglo-Saxons and Vikings!


Well done on your massive improvement in times tables recall! We are now moving onto applying our times tables in fractions, decimals and percentages. Spellings are from the Upper Key Stage 2 spelling list and will be tested every Wednesday. Homework will now be set via Teams on a Friday and due in on a Wednesday. If you are unable to access Teams, please ask Miss Kaur for a hard copy of the homework to complete.


We are currently doing PE on a Thursday and we are focusing on tag rugby. We are working to improve our teamwork and sportsmanship skills.


Please read as often as possible at home and we will test regularly in class to see how well you have recalled your reading.  Home/school contact books are being kept in school for the moment but we are recording your books in these. 


We have completed some great work so far, including setting descriptions based on Heorot and a non-chronological report of Anglo-Saxon life. We are going to produce an explanation text titled “Beowulf’s Guide to Monster Killing” as our main piece of writing this term. In Science, we are learning about Electricity and will be applying our knowledge from last year into a new context.


If you have any questions in regards to home learning, please feel free to arrange a meeting after school to discuss or clarify any issues.
