We will continue to work hard to get the best improvement out of the children and to make the year as enjoyable as we can.  As parents/guardians it would be of great benefit to aid us in this by getting the children to read for 20 minutes each evening and to sign their diaries to say they have done so.  We expect the pupils to write into their diaries what book they have read along with what pages and parents/guardians to just initial.




This year we will be studying a range of different topics.  In this term we will be working through Predator!!

It’s time to take a walk on the wild side!

Find out who’s coming to visit…. is it a bug-munching lizard or an eagle-eyed bird of prey? Whatever it is, do you think you can handle it??

Learn about creepy crocs and amazing alligators, the deadly assassin bug and the voracious Venus flytrap. Be inspired to write an informative leaflet all about your favourite predator and compose a poem about a predator or its prey.

Then use what you know about the best of the beasts to create the ultimate predator; the apex of the chain. Cross your dad with a peregrine falcon or your nan with a great white shark!! What incredible species can you imagine?

Feeling peckish? Let’s jump aboard the food chain!
