Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope that you had a lovely break and enjoyed spending some quality time with your loved ones.

The spring term, just like the autumn term, is going to be full of exciting learning opportunities for the children. An overview of the learning that they will be doing over the term is outlined below.


The Deep Dark Wood by Algy Craig Hall and A River by Marc Martin are the focus texts for the class for the term. The children will be writing for a number of different purposes, such as writing their own narratives and character descriptions, based upon the books. In addition, the children will also be writing recounts about experiences they have during the term. For example, when we visit Pizza Express in January, the children will be writing a recount of their visit to the restaurant.


We will continue to study the concepts outlined in the White Rose scheme of work.


The areas of science that the children will be learning about this term are everyday materials, which the children will be studying in the first half term, and habitats, which they will learn about in the second half term of spring.

Design and Technology

The children did lots of design and technology learning in the autumn term, from making model hill forts to Christmas cards that used simple mechanisms, and the spring term is no different as they will be evaluating existing dips, like hummus, and based upon their evaluations they will create a desirable dip of their own.   


The children will learn about the incredible life of Walter Tull, who was one of English football’s first black player and the first black officer in the British Army to lead white troops, in the first half term of spring.  


In the second half term, the children will be learning about climate zones, which links nicely with our literacy book, A River.


The children will be learning about technology beyond the school environment. We will first be looking at what technology is, what technology we have at school and then expanding our developing knowledge to beyond the school environment.

Religious Education

The children will continue their learning about Christianity during the spring term, learning what Christians believe about Jesus and God, how Christians follow the example of Jesus and other Christians, and forgiveness and love.


The children will be learning about living in the wider world this term, focusing on belonging to a community, media literacy and digital resilience and money and work.

I hope the children really enjoy their learning this term.

Please continue to read with your child for 5-10 minutes each day and help them with their homework when they need it. Thank you for all you have already done, it makes a huge difference so please keep up the good work.

Like in the autumn term, in addition to daily reading, your child will receive weekly homework, which will be set on a Thursday and should be completed and returned to me on the following Thursday (a week after it is set).your child will receive homework be set on a Thursday and should be completed and returned to me on the following Thursday (a week after it is set).

If, at any point, during the term you would like to discuss something with me then please either email me or speak to me on the playground after school when you are collecting your child.

Thank you


Mr Harley


Twitter: @stannesclass2 to see what we are getting up to every day and suggestions for a creative activity that can be done at home.


As the famous quote from Dr Seuss states, "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go," so to help your children to go to more places, please read with them for at least 5 to 10 minutes each day. To ensure that your child receives new books regularly, please make sure they bring their green book bags with them to school every day. 


Homework will be set on a Thursday and is due to be returned the following Thursday. 

I would also like for your children to be playing the maths games that are provided on NUMBOTS (login details are in your child's reading record) 4 or 5 times a week for up to 5 mintues each time they play.

Here is a parent guide video from NUMBOTS which explains how the website works in more detail:

Water bottles and snacks

Please ensure that your child brings their water bottle and snack or snack money to school with them each day. 

PE Kit

Please ensure that you child brings their PE kit with them at the start of each week as we have PE on Monday mornings. Your child's PE kit should include the following items: green PE t-shirt (school name printed on the back), black shorts, trainers and a spare pair of socks. In the winter and spring terms, I would recommend that you also put a pair of black jogging bottoms and a black sweatshirt in your child's PE bag as we will continue to do PE outside, if possible.
