Welcome to Monkeys

We work hard, try our best, and have fun.

Our class teacher is Mrs Murfitt

During our action packed summer term, we will be attempting to answer the question:

           What’s the most powerful natural force on Earth?



English: Our English work will be inspired by our geography based topic. We will learn more about grammar and putting effective sentences together, whilst writing some informative, non-fiction pieces, based around natural disasters. We will also be writing stories inspired by the film The Lighthouse and will create our own poems.

Maths: This term in maths, we will be consolidating our understanding of number and calculation methods, whilst learning more about measurement, time, statistics and shape.


ICT: In ICT, we will be using the internet to research our topic and will use multi modal programs


Science: The power of forces! We will be learning about the power of magnets and how forces affect objects. We will also be learning about the characteristics or vertebrates


Art/DT: In DT , we will be making our own volcano using different materials and will create our own volcanic eruption!


PSHE: During Circle Time, we will get together with children from lower key stage 2 to discuss issues in the news, as well as things that directly impact on us!

We will also begin our work on SRE


Geography: We will be finding out about volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis and tornadoes and where they have occurred in the world.






PE: Our PE focus for this term is Squash and we will also practice our athletic skills ready for our sports day.



RE: Our religious education, will see us discovering more about Beliefs and Questions.



Homework and spellings are given out on a Friday. The children also need to read at home and they are given a star stamp for each time they read. If you have any concerns or questions to ask please come to see us and we will try to help.


Volcano Eruptions

We had lots of fun planning and making our volcanoes in small groups. We used vinegar, bicarbonate of soda and paint to create an eruption.
