Homework is set on on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. A sticker on the inside of the front cover will show you the homework your child should be completing. Maths, timetables and spelling homework will be sent every week. SPaG and Comprehension homework will alternate weekly. Children will also be expected to read five times per week and practice their mental maths targets. 





Please encourage your child to check their timetable regularly (found above) as they should be well organised. Support us with encouraging independence and good organisational skills, which will be beneficial in Year 5/6. We expect children to be wearing the approved school uniform and P.E kit.

Autumn term 1: 

The National Railway 


We went to the National Railway Museum as part of our Victorian's topic. We looked at how trains have developed and how they changed the world during the industrial revolution. We also looked at how York has changed through time and how the railways changed York.

Autumn term 2: 

Victorian Day!


As a landing to our 'How did the railway change Victorian York' topic, we had a whole day experiencing Victorian school! The children (and staff!) dressed up, explored Victorian money, playground games, lesson structure and discipline before showcasing our work to parents in the afternoon. The children found the teachers' strict behaviour hilarious although they all agreed they would not have enjoyed being in a real Victorian classroom!

Spring term 1: 



In Science this term we have been learning all about the Circulatory System. The highlight was getting to dissect real sheep hearts! We were able to identify and label the parts of the heart as well as understand how blood flows around it: a truly indelible experience!


Spring term 2:


Georgian Pies!


This term our History topic was the Georgians. We learnt about their fashion, what life was like for a Georgian servant, how to identify Georgian architecture and we made our own Georgian inspired pies. Using a Georgian shortcrust recipe, the children made their own pastry (from scratch!) and chose filling flavours that complimented each other: roast ham and stuffing; chicken, leek and chorizo; and traditional steak and vegetables.  




Continuing our Science topic this term all about the Circulatory system, we wrote stories from the perspective of a red blood cell travelling around the body. This helped to imbed our learning of the parts of the heart as well as giving us chance to be creative with our writing.
