This term we will be taking a journey across the universe
pondering the possibility of alien life!!!!
We will be having a Science focus over the next two terms.
Our class reader is the amazing George's Secret Key to the Universe:
George's pet pig breaks through the fence into the garden next door - introducing him to his new neighbours: the scientist, Eric, his daughter, Annie, and a super-intelligent computer called Cosmos. And from that moment George's life will never be the same again, for Cosmos can open a portal to any point in outer space . . .
Here are some really useful links to learn more about our topic:

Some useful information about this year:

Homework will be given out on Wednesdays and handed in on Tuesdays.

Doodle Maths: Your child now has a subscription to Doodle Maths and we recommend that they spend 10 minutes a day using Doodle Maths to practise numeracy skills.
Maths Frame is a fantastic free resource to help learn and practise your multiplication tables.
Hero of the Week
Your children have been asked to think about a hero: dead, alive, known personally, do not know personally, who they admire and respect. We would like them to talk to the class about this person for a couple of minutes - they can use a Powerpoint, photographs, objects to assist them with this. Confidence in speaking out loud to an audience is something we like to develop in our children.
Here is the rota for the year.
