Our text for this half term is the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. We will be learning about different genres of writing through the story and characters. 

 The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis | Waterstones




In Maths we will be focusing our attentions on place value and our arithmetic skills.  We will make sure we all understand how to read and write numbers in figures and words as well as understanding the value of each digit in a number.  Then we will make sure we can all use the written methods that we have been practising this year. 



We will be conducting a local area study in our history topic in the first half term by researching the history of Preston High Street. 




 Other Important Information

PE will be on a Wednesday and a Thursday.  Please make sure that school PE kit is in school every day.  PE lessons will be outside so children may wear navy blue/grey/black leggings or jogging bottoms instead of their shorts.  It is also recommended that trainers are worn.  Please make sure that if your child wears earrings, they are capable of taking them out before the PE lesson.  If not please remove them before they come to school.


We will continue to use Class DoJo to award the children team points and to let parents know what is happening in class.  Please check regularly for messages and to keep up to date with our class story.
