Autumn Term Project

Our main learning question this half term is 'What makes a great story?' 

We will focus on writing our own Greek Myths and exploring the lives of the Ancient Greeks. We will also focus on the story of King Midas and Hercules and the Hydra  . This project will have a history, art, drama focus although other subjects will be explored such as science, computing, RE and PSHE. 

The following websites provide information on some of the issues we have thought about so far.

Reading Champions

Children should be reading every night at home for at least 30 minutes. Their signed reading champions should be brought into school every day and will be checked frequently. Children are encouraged to change their own reading book during our library session.

Mad About Maths 

Children should also be doing some maths every night at home. Their signed mad about maths should be brought into school every day and will be checked frequently. Challenges will be given to the children weekly. The challenges are to improve rapid recall of basic mental maths that will form the foundations for our learning in lessons.


New spellings will be sent home every Friday and must be practised for a test the following Friday. 


Homework will be sent home every Friday and is expected back the following Wednesday. 


We have P.E on Wednesday. Please ensure your child has their full P.E kit (a blue Dallam T-shirt, black shorts and black pumps) and a water bottle.
