Welcome to

Our topic this half term is ....


Up, Up and Away!



We will be learning all about planes and other machines that may be up in sky. We will continue our learning from last term on how to use an atlas to locate places where famous aviators like Amelia Earhart travelled. 


In Design Technology we will be learning all about air resistance and what makes things glide. We may also have a paper plane competition. Keep your eyes peeled on this.


In Science we are going to be learning about the human body.

Please remember to read lots at home and record in your diary. Please read other things besides your school reading book- the more the better- for example, other story and non fiction books,  poems, magazines, signs, even ingredients on packets!


Times Tables 

Please remember also to practise your times tables- focus on the 2X 5X and 10X tables in Derwent Class.


Remember:- Bronze means you can say the whole table in order- eg "one times two is two, two times two is four....." fluently.


Silver means you can say the answer to any sum from the times table eg "what's 4 x 5?   What's 8 X 5 ?


Gold means you can say the reverse division fact- eg in five times table, what's 20 divided by 5? how many fives in 15?

In ten times table, what's 50 divided by 10?

 When you practise spellings, it's a good idea to write  a sentence  including the spelling word you are learning. Then you are more likely to remember it !
