Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment. If you have any concerns regarding the safeguarding of any of our pupils please contact our Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mrs Smith. Please see the safeguarding section of our website under Key Information > Safeguarding.
For our current writing topic we are writing a letter to a famous footballer attempting to persuade them to take a stand against child labour in the sportswear industry. Through this piece, children will develop a better understanding of the global issue of child labour; develop an understanding of the features of a persuasive letter and continue to practise applying age related grammar features to their writing.
We are currently studying forces. Over the topic we will look at a number of different forces including gravity and air resistance. We will investigate these forces practically and develop our working scientifically skills in the process. We will also look at levers and pulleys and how these allow a smaller force to have a greater effect.
We are currently studying place value. We are extending our place value knowledge to millions and developing our awareness of the numbers in our number system. We will explore the values of digits in increasingly large numbers; round numbers to the nearest ten, hundred, thousand or ten thousand; place numbers of number lines and further our knowledge of negative numbers. To support learning at home, it is important that children remain up to date with their Mathletics work.
The children are currently learning about the Anglo-Saxons.
