Topics for the Spring Term

Summer 1- Urban Pioneers  

Summer 2 - Emperors and Empires



Hop on the bus and take a trip downtown where the lights are bright, and every street has a story to tell. Explore with fresh eyes the art of the city, then capture a moment in time – perhaps a reflection on a building or a shadow passing by. Make a map of your home town and find out how things have changed. Has time changed town life for the better? How could you improve the urban environment? Maybe add more colour? More light? More things to do, or perhaps a plaza with a comfortable bench or two? Or maybe, like Emil, the city astounds you with its sights and sounds and people rushing by. Now light up the city with creations of your own – a statue, a light show, a monument or street art. The possibilities are endless. What will you choose? You’re an urban pioneer, so get ready to go.                                                     



We will be studying and producing a variety of work based on a number of books during this half term. These will include:-

The Promise - Nicola Davies

The Iron Man - Ted Hughes




Children will learn to: 


  •  Understand wholes and splitting wholes into equal parts.
  •  Recognise and find a half, quarter and a third of numerals and sets of objects and understand the equivalence between a half and two quarters.
  • Recognise unit and non-unit fractions.
  •  Count in fractions.
  •  Investigate and identify fractions which are equivalent.
  •  Compare and order unit fractions or fractions with the same denominator.
  •  Add two or more fractions with the same  denominator where the total is less than 1.
  •  Subtract fractions with the same denominator within one whole.
  •  Tell the time to the nearest 5 minutes on an analogue clock. Focus on language past and to.
  • Tell the time to the nearest minute on an analogue clock.
  • Use morning, afternoon, evening and a.m. and p.m. to describe the time of day.
  • Introduce telling the time on the 24 hour digital clock.
  • Find durations of events and compare durations of time using both the analogue and digital clocks. 



  •  Recognise that they need light in order to see things and that dark is the absence of light
  •  Notice that light is reflected from surfaces 
  • Recognise that light from the sun can be dangerous and that there are ways to protect their eyes
  •  Recognise that shadows are formed when the light from a light source is blocked by an opaque object
  •  Find patterns in the way that the size of shadows change.



Understanding Christianity - The Gospels 

  •  To understand the kind of world that God wants for us.



  • use maps, atlases, globes and digital/computer mapping to locate countries and describe features studied
  • use fieldwork to observe, measure, record and present the human and physical features in the local area using a range of methods, including sketch maps, plans and graphs, and digital technologies.




PE will be on a Monday afternoon and children will need to wear their PE kit to school. The kit will comprise of black jogging bottoms/leggings, a white t-shirt and their school jumper.  Trainers will also need to be worn into school.



‘Home Readers’ will be Oxford Reading Tree books and we ask that you read with your child at home as much as possible.  Oxford Reading Tree books can be changed once an adult has confirmed completion of their current book.



Homework will be set on our Seesaw Home Learning Platform.

Spellings will be given for the whole half term. Spellings are tested on a Friday.

At the moment the children have been asked to read each night and continue to work on Times Tables Rock Stars and Manga High.
