English– This half term we are learning about and writing Recounts and the Reports. Our Grammar focus will be about the different spelling of verbs depending on their tense eg: I ran, I will run, I am running. We will also focus on using paragraphs to organise our writing and revisiting adverbs.

Home Preparation - Please read instructional texts such as recount stories and or diaries.


Mathematics – In our Maths sessions we are learning to multiply and divide by 3, 4 and 8 accurately, as well as solve problems using materials, arrays, repeated addition, mental methods, and multiplication and division facts, including problems in context. This topic is followed by measurement where we will learn to measure, compare, add and subtract: lengths (m/cm/mm) and solve problems, including missing number problems, using number facts, place value, and more complex addition and subtraction.

Home Preparation – Please continue to practise multiplying and dividing by 3, 4 & 8 so that your child is able to recall these facts instantly.


The Way, The Truth and The Life After we have learnt about the Epiphany, we shall be moving on to our next topic ‘Sacrament of Reconciliation’. This topic also coincides with our Sacramental Programme and will ensure that all children who are taking part in this programme are fully ready to receive this special Sacrament.

Home Preparation – Please discuss with your child what it means to make wrong choices and how wrong choices affect us and others.


History & Geography – We are almost at the end of our work on Stone Age to Iron Age. In week 1 we will be finding out about ‘how the Iron Age people lived’. From week 2 onwards we will begin our exploration into the lives of the Romans.  We will look to answer the following questions- Who were the Romans? How do we know about people from the past? Why did Julias Caesar try to invade in 55-54BC? Why was the Roman Army so successful?

Home Preparation - It would be great if they could research the weekly questions at home using books, Google, photographs, talking to relatives and compile it all together in some form eg: a book, a model, drawings OR, have a go at making a model of a Celtic Roundhouse or Roman shield.
