Welcome back. I hope you enjoyed your half term break.

This half term, we will be looking at how humans have impacted the earth and how this is affecting climate change. We will look at how weather patterns have changed over time and the gradual warming of our planet, which has now affected parts of the world in different ways.  This also links into recent news with the UN Climate Change Conference.

Our English book is ‘Can We Save The Tiger?’. This book is about species that are endangered or have become extinct. This is a non-fiction unit that will focus on persuasive writing.

Our class reading book is ‘Into the Jungle’ by Katherine Rundell. This book was inspired by Rudyard Kipling’s ‘Jungle Book’ and it tells short stories about the different characters from it.

In science, we have been identifying and classifying living organisms. We have looked at how organisms are grouped and created our own classification keys.


Reading is essential to support your child's learning in all areas of the curriculum. It is important that they are encouraged both in school and at home to read for enjoyment. They can choose both fiction and non-fiction books and try different genres such as mystery, sci-fi, historical fiction, fantasy etc. 

I will send reading records home with a book of your child's choice from our class library. They should read every day for at least 10 minutes - preferably more - and an adult should sign their reading record. We are also continuing to use 'Bug Club' which can be found at this address The username and password will be written in the reading record. 

The children also have logins to Bedrock and Timestables Rock Stars.

If you have any questions or queries, please contact me on my email - I will try to respond to any queries as soon as I can.
