Learning Journey

This term our Learning Journey has a history focus, but English, Maths, Geography, Science, Art, DT, Dance and Music will all link together to create an exciting, memorable learning experience.


We are going into Space!

We will be discovering everything to do with Space during this half-term from what Astronauts eat when in Space to what planets exist in our atmosphere. We will also be researching a historical figure - Neil Armstrong - and look at his contribution to the discovery of the moon. We will also be learning about another historical figure, Alan Bean, who is a Space themed sculptor and focus on him within art lessons. In dance we will be looking at different ways of travelling and creating a Space themed dance.


Please read with your child as often as possible (every day if you can).  Research shows that children who read at home make better progress with their reading generally. They will change their books once a week and will bring home 2/3 books for you to share with your child.  Please encourage your child to bring their reading bag to school every day.
Some tips for reading at home:

Discuss the story and ask your child lots of questions to check they have understood what they have read. Act out the story or make up different endings. Discuss the characters and their feelings at different times in the story. Talk about the story and relate it to your child’s experiences if possible.




This term we have PE sessions on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons but please ensure that PE kits are in school at all times.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you need any further information. 
Email is often the most efficient method:

We look forward to a great Autumn Term!
