This term our topic is Age of Princes.  This has been an extremely enjoyable topic where we have utilised our digital skills to create castles in Minecraft.  We have also been writing a myth in English; focusing on vocabulary and sentence structure.


In Maths we have looked at Place value and measurement, this has been interesting and all children have learned vital skills to support their learning.  We have also been looking at calculations using the 4 operations to embed learning and develop richer fluency.


Water bottles and PE kits need to be in school daily.  We have also been trying out various sports to give us a taste of different activities.


Forest School is every other Thursday afternoon.
