We will be generating our literacy work for Summer from:

Life on the Scilly Isles in 1907 is bleak and full of hardship. Laura’s twin brother, Billy, disappears and then a storm devastates everything. It seems there is little hope…that is until the sailing ship the Zanzibar is wrecked on the island’s rocks and everything changes…


Book cover

When a young Zodiac goddess, Virgo, lands in his back garden, Elliot thinks he might see a way to resolve some of his difficulties but, instead, the pair manage to accidentally release Thanatos – the immortal death-daemon – from centuries of imprisonment.

The test will now be on a Friday.


We are learning about:

Living things and their habitats

Pupils should be taught to:

  • recognise that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways
  • explore and use classification keys to help group, identify and name a variety of living things in their local and wider environment
  • recognise that environments can change and that this can sometimes pose dangers to living things


This term our PE sessions will be on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. Please ensure that children wear their PE kits to school. House colours if possible.

Forest school sessions will take place  on a Wednesday. It is important that children have wellies in school  to be able to join in Forest School sessions. It would be a great idea to keep them in lockers for the term.

Maths Games

Top Marks is a website with lots of good games children can play to help them with their maths. Hit the button is a great one for times tables.
