Our enquiry this term asks the question ‘What does Earth look like from the Solar System?’ We will be working as scientists, geographers and artists as we seek to understand the Earth’s movements and its relationship to other celestial bodies such as the sun and moon.
Our writing this term will be based on the book, Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce. Described as a ‘side-splitting story of long-legged Liam and his quest to be the first child in space’, it fits in well with our enquiry, and lends itself to some amazing writing opportunities.
We will be teaching maths and reading comprehension in separate year groups this term. Yr4 have the privilege of working with Mr Larke-Phillips whilst Yr5 will be taught by me.
PE Days this term will be Thursday and Friday – Your child should come to school dressed in PE kit.

Supporting your child at home
You can help support at home by encouraging your child with their spellings, reading, times tables and any other homework set. For a recommended reading list please visit https://schoolreadinglist.co.uk/. You can find suggested book lists for both Yr4 and Yr5 under the ‘KS2 BOOK LISTS’ tab.
We are really excited about this year and working together with your child to learn lots of new things!
