Our topic for this half term is Stone Age. 


What was new about the Stone Age?




During topic lessons, the children will learn about changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. They will find out about different settlements and why early people choose to settle there. 


Start and finish times


8:50am – 3:00 pm

Please do not arrive earlier than this time (unless arriving with younger siblings).


PE days - Monday and Tuesday 


Monday will be outside PE taught by a professional coach and Tuesday will be outside PE taught by a myself. 


The children need to come into school wearing their PE kit on these days. They do not need to bring uniform to change into. Please make sure your child is appropriate dressed e.g. warm tracksuit or sweatshirt.



Homework is given out on a Friday, and expected in by the following Wednesday. Homework will consist of online maths activities (mymaths, TT rockstars) spellings, reading and when necessary, an English task. An optional Nando’s challenge is also given out every term. Spellings will be tested on a Wednesday (their results will be put in their Reading Records) and times tables will be tested every Friday. 




Children are expected to read at least four times per week with an adult. Please can this be recorded in their reading log. Children will be able to change their reading books on Tuesday and Thursday. To encourage fluency, we suggest that children read their school books several times at home before changing them. 



The children have also got access to lots of online books to read at home on Their login details are stuck in the front page of their diary, along with information for TT rockstars.




Children no longer have snack provided for them from the government. So if your child wishes to have snack this needs to be provided by home. As much as possible could this snack please be fruit or vegetables due to allergies in our classroom. 


In KS2 children do not have an afternoon break.
