Building bright futures

Spring Term

The teaching team includes:

Miss Simpson (Class Teacher)

Mr Ellis (Teaching Assistant)

Mrs Rashid (Teaching Assistant)

Mrs Sarmiento (Spanish Teacher)

We are continuing to look forward to working in partnership with you, in order to secure the best outcomes for your child in the build up to their SATs in May.

Miss Simpson will be in the playground on Tuesday mornings. Please see her then if you would like to book an appointment to talk about your child.


This term we will be learning all about algebra, how to find missing coordinates, interpreting charts and graphs and going over percentages and averages. We will also spend much of our time revising all that we have learnt so far in Maths so that we feel confident and ready to show off in our SATs tests! What will really help us is if we learn our times tables up to 12x12, our prime numbers below 20, our squared numbers up to 12x12 and practise long and short division at home.


This term we will be focusing on fiction and non-fiction writing with books related to our Crime and Punishment topic unit. We will start with Anthony Browne's 'King Kong' and write a newspaper article documenting the events. Then we will move on to 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty. We also want to really improve our spelling and we'll do this by practising our spelling list for homework, learning spelling rules and having weekly spelling tests. We have improved so much already but we need to keep this up!


This term is all about Animals including Humans. we will be finding out about the circulatory system, keeping healthy and parts of the body.  


This term we will be focusing on our value for this half term which is Humility and also God is Love. 


Our topic this term is Crime and Punishment. We will be studying how and why both have changes and remained similar since Roman times in Britain. We will discover that the Victorians created the first police force, how children in particular were treated during that period and make up our own ghastly punishments for historical crimes. In short, we will be finding out all about the gruesome and fascinating bits of history!


This term we will be studying more complex sequences in gymnastics, moving from floor to using apparatus. We will also be circuit training with a focus on cardio vascular aerobics. 

How you can help


To help us all improve our Maths we really need to learn our times tables up to 12x12, off by heart. Practising them with us and testing us on them as often as possible would make a huge difference. 


Doing exactly the same with our spellings would also help when we get them on a Friday for our weekly tests on a Thursday.


Please make sure that our homework is done and handed in on time every Wednesday so that Miss Simpson can mark it and give us all the support we need. 


In Christ Church this year, we are all being encouraged to read more and to enjoy it! Reading with us every day for 10 minutes can really improve our comprehension. Make sure we record our thoughts in our home-reading records.
