TERMS 1 & 2


We will be using our Power of Reading book, Iron Man by Ted Hughes, as our focus in our writing and reading. We will be focusing on these skills in English:

  • Writing a newspaper report about the coming of the Iron Man, including interviewing characters from the book.
  • Writing a persuasive speech to convince our classmates to either get rid of, or keep, the Iron Man.
  • Creating our own science fiction characters inspired by the Iron Man.

Throughout the year there will be great emphasis on Grammar, spelling, punctuation and reading. It would be wonderful if you could support your child at home in these areas.

Foundation Subjects

We will also be covering these topics in our other learning:

  • The Stone Age to Iron Age in history, looking at how things changed over time for humans first of all, then studying how things changed locally during this time.
  • Thinking about the sounds that we can make and those of our environment in music.
  • Football, badminton, netball and tennis in PE.


We will be focusing on embedding our knowledge of the times tables and division facts. In particular, we will be learning about:

  • Multiplying two-digit numbers by a one-digit number using formal written methods.
  • Dividing two-digit numbers by a one-digit number using formal written methods.
  • Finding fractions of amounts.

Throughout all these topics, there will be a focus on worded problems including measurement.


Our RE topic in term 3 is all about The Sacrament of Reconciliation, which will include:

  • Thinking about how we can ask for forgiveness.
  • Understanding that the Sacrament of Reconciliation shows God’s love for us.

In term 4, we will be Celebrating the Mass, to include:

  • Learning about each part of the mass

Thinking about why each part is special and understanding how it links to the life of Jesus.


Our science topic for term 3 is light. By the end of the term, we will have:

  • Understood where light comes from and why light can be dangerous.
  • Compared the reflectiveness of different materials.
