Spring Term 2021

Welcome back! We hope that you have all enjoyed your Christmas holidays. We are so excited to get this new term underway and have lots of fun activities planned for you all.

Our topic this term is 'From Stone Age to Iron Age'. We will be exploring life in the Stone Age and really utilising our historical enquiry skills. In Science, we will be learning about rocks and soils. We will spend time designing and creating our own version of a Stone Age bag in DT and studying cave paintings in Art.

Hopefully we will get to go on our residential trip to Burwardsley this term...fingers crossed!

Here are some links to Stone Age information:

Stone Age Britain BBC Bitesize

Maths

Our maths topic will be Multipication and Division. We will recap the 2, 5 and 10 times tables before really getting to grips with 3, 4 and 8 plus the related divisions.

Don't forget to practise, practise and practise those times tables!
