In Grammar work we will learn about prepositions and conjunctions, commas to separate clauses, verb tenses and adverbial phrases as introductions.  Standard and non-standard English will also be a focus.

Please help your child by ensuring that they read regularly and return their completed home reading records to school each Thursday.  Spellings are given on Mondays and homework is given on Fridays.

The children will learn how to use excel to make tables, add data, then input formulas to calculate their work.



Our cross curricular topic will include aspects of history, geography and art. 

On Wednesday 3rd October we visited the Dewa Experience in Chester.  This trip supported our work on Romans.
