To Try Our Very Best in All We Do

Welcome to our school website. Please take the time to explore all the things that happen in our wonderful school.

Autumn - Creatures and Critters

Creatures and Critters


During our transition topic from Year 4, we will be exploring life cycles of different creatures (mammals, amphibians, insects and birds), creating our own minibeast soft toy based on existing products and classfying the different creatures.




Our book for this topic is 'Two Bad Ants' where the children will be able to explore settings from an ant perspective. We will be looking at developing and writing our own ending to the story. The skills we will be practising are paragraphing, speech and using adverbial openers.




In our maths lessons, we will be focusing on place value for numbers including 4 and 5 digits. Then we will apply this knowledge in a variety of different representation and using to support us when we learn to round.
