Spring Term 2022

What a fantastic start we have made to the new year! 


This term our theme is From the Stone Age to the Iron Age. We will be learning about how life was different in these times- what they ate, what clothes they wore, what types of houses they lived in etc. Check out the curriculum letter attached below to find out more about our learning in other subject areas.


In PE we will be improving our fine and gross motor skills through throwing, aiming and catching with ball games. This lesson will be on Wednesday afternoons.  

In games we are learning how to work better as a team through a range of fun and challenging activities. This lesson will be on Thursday afternoons. Please make sure you have your P.E kit in school. 



Reading :Children should read daily at home. Please log the pages read and add a comment. If a book needs changing, the children need to put their reading record and book in the reading tray in the classroom just before registration.

Spellings: Each Friday, children will be tested on their spellings. New spellings will be discussed and a list posted on Google classroom. They can also be practised daily using Spelling Shed.

Times Tables: Children should practise their times tables for 5 minutes each day. They can use TTRockstars to do this.


If you are unsure about anything, please do get in touch either by phone or email.



Flint Knapping- The Falcons learnt how Stone Age people would make their spear heads out of flint in a process called knapping, so we did the same with soap!
