The Celts believed hazelnuts gave one wisdom and inspiration.

Term 2 - Enchanting Europe

Our topic this term is Enchanting Europe (Geography Study). 

In English lessons we like to link the book to the topic. We will be starting off the term with a story study - Hansel and Gretel as this is traditional German tale. We will be looking at a few different versions from Neil Gaiman and Anthony Browne. We will be using the text to create our own 'twised tales' based on the premise of Hansel and Gretel, but with the children changing the characters and setting. We will be looking more into grammar this term also, focusing on inverted commas (speech marks) and paragraphing to help with our story writing skills. 

Within Maths this term, we will be focusing on the four operations, in particular muliplication. Any additional work at home to practice these would be fantastic and there are some great games available (see below). 

During Topic lessons, we will be having a Geography focus on looking at maps and knowing how to find places, knowing continents and capital cities. We will then look at different countries and how they are similar and different to where we live as well as looking at the human and physical features. Please have a look at the word mats on this page for any help at home. 

Our Science focus this term is forces ad magnets. Through this topic we will be looking at force and how magnets work as well as completing a DT project through what we have learnt. 


As you can imagine school will be slightly different for a number of reasons. Please help us to keep children and staff as safe as possible. 

- Please ensure your child has a water bottle (named) in school every day and their book bag, NO rucksaks and any items bought in from home. 

- Please encourage the children to wash their hands regularly for at least 20 seconds before drying throughly.

- Encourage your children to use the toilet facilities independently and in a tidy manner - this includes using toilet paper and flushing. 

- Modelling how to keep a safe distance whenever possible. 

Please make sure that your child comes to school in PE kit on a Tuesday and Friday  because these will be the days when we do PE during term 2.  Children will need a gumshield and shin pads each week as well.
