Here are the spellings for this half term. 


A few reminders

PE: Children have PE every Wednesday and Thursday this half term. Children should come dressed in their PE kit on these days. 

Water: Children are encouraged to bring in a bottle of water each day which they can access at any time.  Please ensure your child’s name is on their bottle. 

Snack: If you wish to send in a snack, please make sure it is healthy - no chocolate, crisps or sweets. We are a nut free school. Snack can also be purchased from the school kitchen using credit on your child’s dinner money account.




In Spring 1, we will be writing an adventure narrative for the picture book, Journey, by Aaron Becker. Journey is a wordless book that shows the story of an ordinary girl who draws a magic door on her bedroom wall and escapes on an extraordinary journey of magic and adventure. Our focus will be on setting descriptions to create atmosphere and using dialogue to show relationships between characters. 

The Illustrated Atlas of Britain and Ireland by Struan Reid and Megan Cullis is our focus text for reading. We will be using this non-fiction text to support our retrieval skills and understanding of how language, structure and presentation contribute to meaning. 



In Summer 1, we are revisiting fractions, but this time focusing on adding and subtracting fractions and finding fractions of a number of objects. We will then be moving on to money, where we will again be looking at adding and subtracting, as well as finding the amount of change.
