Spring Term 2020

This term in English we are looking forward to starting our new book, ‘Journey to the River Sea’ by Eva Ibbotson. We will also be venturing into the Antarctic, learning about the adventures of Captain Scott and through this exploiting many opportunities for writing and grammar. Please do not tell your children what happened – Google is banned!

In Maths, pupils will continue to build on last term's work across all areas, including geometry, ratio and proportion, data handling and algebra. We will also continue to develop and enhance arithmetic and reasoning skills. 

Our science units will begin with ‘Evolution and Adaptation', followed by ‘Heart and Lungs’, which ties in neatly with our IPC unit 'Out of Africa'. Through this, we will be learning about how life on Earth evolved and how closely linked we are to other species. We will be thinking about how animals are adapted to survive in different environments and finding out who Charles Darwin was.

Curriculum overview

We started using the International Primary Curriculum in September 2016. You can find more details of it on the Curriculum and Subject pages on the menu to the left. At the beginning of every unit of study we will be sending out a letter to parents that explains the sort of things that are being covered in the unit. Copies of these letters are available from the links below, as well as an overview for this year group.
