Information for Spring Term 2014



Our Religious Education topic for this term are:
'Journeys', 'Listening and Sharing' and 'Giving all' from the new scheme 'Come and See'



The units of work covered during this term are taken from the following genres:

Descriptive writing
Poetry (Including Shape Poetry)
Persuasive writing

Every Friday children are given new weekly spellings based on a specific spelling pattern or theme. The children’s spellings are recorded in their spelling booklets. Spelling tests will then take place the following Friday.

All children should be taking their reading books home daily and should be returned daily so that they can be listened to over the course of the week. Reading books are changed as and when we feel the children are ready to move on; the children’s competency will be checked in class and their book changed accordingly.



We will be covering a number of topics this term including; Core Skills (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division), Measures, Data Handling and Shape and Space.


The children will also be given opportunities to problem solve and carry out investigations.

It is essential that all children have a thorough knowledge of multiplication tables in order to ensure good progress. It is also important that all children work on learning their 2, 5 and 10 times tables and then move onto learning their 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 9 times tables (as appropriate) at home. These of course, are also being learned in school.



This term all Key Stage 2 pupils will be following a thematic cross-curricular skills based approach to learning based on our new topic

'Sportswear Designers'.

Please find all information relating to this topic on the Curriculum page of the website.




This term we will be developing Gymnastic and Dance skills using the PESS programme. This term's topics for games are netball and handling skills. Our PE lessons are on a Thursday and Games lessons on a Friday. It is very important that all pupils bring their P.E. kit when required for their lessons.


Please ensure that you provide your child with  a warm, water proof coat for their games session on a Friday.



This term we will be learning to express information about our home and family, learning new sentence patterns related to Y Teulu/The Family and Nadolig/Christmas.




Maths and Literacy homework is given each Friday and must be returned at the latest, each Wednesday for marking.

The children are given a Literacy homework book and maths sheets where they will be able to complete the given task.


Please also ensure that your child spends between 10-15 minutes reading their school book at home as this will greatly aid their progress.

If you have any concerns or queries at any time, then please feel free to pop in for a chat at the end of the day.

Many thanks,


Mr Williams J
