Happy New Year!


I hope you had a fantastic festive holiday. I'm so looking forward to seeing you all back in the classroom or on Zoom. We are going to have so much fun and many, many exciting challenges this term.


Our main topic this term is 'Rivers and Rainforests'.

Our big question is 'Do all living things deserve respect?'


In English, we will be writing poetry about the rainforests and fictional adventures. I can’t wait!

In Maths, we will continue to develop our multiplication and division knowledge. 

In Science, our theme will be animals and digestion. There is a lot of investigating, recording and sorting to be completed in this topic. I am looking forward to your observations.


In Computing, we are learning basic photo editing. In our PE sessions, we will be studying net and ball sports. During RE, our focus is considering some of the rules of Judaism . Over the course of our Music lessons, we will be composing music inspired by the past. During Art, we will be studying Henri Rousseau and creating artwork inspired by his style. In Spanish, we will be covering Epiphany celebrations and animals. During PSHE, our core theme concerns healthy relationships, with a particular focus on managing feelings and emotions. 


Our key concepts for this term are: Forgiveness, Change and Life.


Phew, there is so much to do! I am so pleased to be on this learning journey with you.


Best wishes,

Mrs Morris
