Dear Parents/ Carers,


Welcome back to school! smiley


Our topic this term is Italy and The Romans.  For History, we will be taking a school trip to Butser Ancient Farm in November (details to follow). Our Science topic is Food and our Bodies. In Geography we will be learning about the country of Italy and its place in the world and also about Volcanoes and Earthquakes. We have arranged an ‘Italy’ day in October, which will involve lots of cooking. In R.E. we will be studying Christianity.


Homework will include weekly spellings stuck into the reading record books, maths sheets in folders and English/topic homework stuck in the homework books. Please return homework books and maths folders on WEDNESDAYS. It will be given out on Friday. Spelling tests and Mental Maths test will take place on Fridays. There is a rotation for show and tell – Please check the window for dates.


Don’t forget: healthy snacks, a named water bottle and named clothing. Can we also remind you about the children providing a pencil case, which needs to include the following items and MUST be named:

HB writing pencils

Colouring pencils


Glue stick

15cm ruler


If you have any questions in the meantime, please get in touch. Also, if you are willing to come in at any time and help, please let us know, because we value any help.


Many thanks, Mrs H Lancashire
