Please have a look at BBCbitesize -Fairy stories and traditional tales, which has lots of different stories to watch and interactive activities to do.

Our class text - Jack and The Beanstalk.

One day when they had no food to left Jack's mom send him to market to sell their cow. On the way Jack bumps into a funny little man wearing a big, baggy jacket with big, baggy pockets. In the pockets lie six bewitched beans, but the funny little man has lost the instructions for them.


We are learning about significant individuals from the past who have changed our world.

We are learning all about Guy Fawkes and discussing our opinions about whether we thought he was a hero or a villain for doing what he did.

Then we will be researching about Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole. Two very brave women who changed the world of nursing and forged the way for better conditions in hospitals. How their actions from the past have changed our world now.

Science - The Seasons

This half term in science we are learning about the seasons. What they are and how the weather, plants and what we wear changes to in each season. We are also talking about day length and how that varies in each season. We will be investigating different ways to measure the weather and we will be measuring in cm the rainfall over a week. To do this every child will make their own rain gauge to record data and make conclusions.
