We will start the term with play scripts. We will be using the book and film Matilda to support our work. We will also cover traditional poetry, persuasive texts and explanations. We will also be completing some work on the Hodgeheg by Dick King Smith. We will use this book to complete lots of work and then use it to base our own story on.

Secret Website Mission: What is the difference between speech in a book and a play script?


Our Science topics will include magnets and light and shadow. We will look at the forces between magnets; materials that are magnetic and non magnetic and uses of magnets. In light and shadow we will investigate what shadows are; how our shadow changes throughout the day and why and the shadows of different objects.

Secret website mission: What do we call the 2 male parts of a plant?

Religious Education

Our RE topic for this half term will be all about 'Why do people pray?' This topic will enable pupils to learn in depth about different religious and spiritual ways of prayer. Children will look at the symbols religions use, how they pray, words they use and their significance.


We will be working on our new topic of BT and Beyond. In this topic we will explore the village now and from the past. We will also look at our local area. This topic will include a field trip. 

Design and Technology 

Our DT topic this term will lead us to looking at and comparing pop-up books and then making our own.


We will be creating our own survey and reviewing the results. We will also be sending our own e-mails and replying to them.
