We are looking forward to an exciting Spring Term 2018! 



Our Topic Question for the Spring Term is...

The Industrial Revolution: A Dark Age or a Golden Age?



In English, we will read and use the text 'Mill Girl' and 'Cogheart'





We are looking forward to writing a prologue, diary entry, poem, and a non-fiction text.


We will also be continuing to develop our 'Rainbow Grammar' knowledge and practise our handwriting.





In Maths we will have 3 maths skills lessons every week, a using and applying our skills lesson and an arithmetic lesson!



Our Science topics Danger! Low Voltage and Light Up Your World







Through our topic work we will be aiming to answer our topic question...

The Industrial Revolution: A Dark Age or a Golden Age?


In history we will learn about the main changes in this time and their effects, town life, transport, school life and life in a work house.


As part of this theme we will be enjoying a visit to Southwell Workhouse on 1st March 2018

In D.T, we will learn how to cross stitch!



Our Computing work will, as always, involves work around E-Safety and knowing how to stay safe online. We will also develop our emailing skills and start a class 'blog'.


We will be using ICT in lots of other lessons to help our research and presentation of work.

We read everyday in school so you will need your reading book and reading diary with you every day.

Also, have a go at reading a book using your BUG CLUB account!



Every Friday Zebra's will have  homework to complete. They are expected to complete their homework for the following Friday. Please do your best to support and encourage your child with their schoolwork.


Please make sure you have your reading diary with you for the spelling test on Friday.



If you would like to have a chat or pass on any information please feel free to come into class, I will be more than happy to see you. For a lengthier chat please arrange an after school appointment.

Most of all we will be having lots of fun in class!
