We will remember...
This half term we will be learning about World War 2, specifically the blitz and how this affected children . We will be answering questions:
- How will you help win the war?
- Who helped win the war?
- What was the Blitz?
- What's in the suitcase?
- How can we stay safe in the Blitz?
In the first couple of weeks back, we will learn about propaganda and how this helped win the war.
We are beginning our ramp up to SATs , so be prepared to hit the ground running . In grammar we will be learning about preposition, prepositional phrases, pronouns (including possessive) , present perfect and the subjunctive form . In writing we will look at using more sophisticated punctatuation to improve our work and will be looking at both narrative and non narrative forms . Most of the work we do will be centered around a book called ' Boy in the Tower'. Remember to practise your spellings, as we will continue with our daily quizzes . Our guided reading sessions will be more probing , using inference to find the authors intent.
Our numeracy will be getting progressively more tricky , reasoning being the main focus . We will learn how to systematically tackle those four and five step questions . Most of the work for this half term will be centered around shape and measure. We will continue to do our weekly arithmetic tests and daily times table challenges to help your pace .

2015 - 2018
It is with deep regret we have to announce that Moley passed away 31/01/2018. He went peacefully in his sleep , at Mrs.Wraith's house. He will be remembered for being a squeaker , always enjoying a good natter with whoevers' shoulder he was perched on . A kind and gentle soul , laid back and a true gentleman to the end . He lived to a very good age and enjoyed life to the full . Now reunited with his brothers , Splinter and Snowflake .
We will miss you Moley , gone but never forgotten .
