Week Beginning 22nd February

Welcome Back!

I hope you all had a restful week and time to recharge your batteries ready for another action packed term.


This term we continue to learn about our European neighbours in Geography and writing to inform in English, creating non chronological reports about European countries we have studied. In Science we begin to explore Animals including humans, beginning by looking at teeth and digestion followed by food chains. PSHE links to prior learning about keeping ourselves fit and healthy as well as safe and focuses on the safe use of drugs and medicines. In RE we focus on creation around us and reflect on the beauty of the world- perfect as we lead into Spring. Maths we begin to explore fractions, building upon prior knowledge and continue to commit multiplication facts to memory. We continue to use Maths Shed to challenge ourselves and learn them at speed! 

I look forward to sharing the learning with you and I'm sure we'll all have fun!


Please find below your learning for the week- use the timetable if you wish to follow the same learning as the children who are in school.

As before, please share your completed work on Twitter and via email and let us know how you are getting on.


Remember to ask about anything you are unsure of and book in with Mrs Favell or myself for a video chat where we can help you with any learning. Keep up the good work!


Overarching Question Term 4

This term gives us a new question to think about.


'Is it fate or choice that allows us to spread our wings?'


To begin with we need to dig deeper into what the question means. This week, think about what the words mean, talk about them with others in your home and use a dictionary if you need to.


What does fate mean?

How do we define the word 'choice'? Think about other words that are in this word family too, choose, choosing, chose. What would synonyms and antonyms linked to this word be?

What does the phrase- 'spread our wings' mean?


Write down some of your initial ideas as you unpick the question.


Please share your ideas with us at

Go on a walk outside and find items from creation that show different shades of colour.

Can you close your eyes and listen to the sounds around you? What can you hear? Which of these are sounds of nature? Birds, leaves, rustling etc

Imagine you are at the beach- what might you hear?

Can you take a photo on an ipad of something you find wonderful in the natural environment? A photo that has the wow factor? If you can, print the picture off and explain why you think it has the wow factor.
