History and Geography

  • Stone Age to Iron Age
  • Weather
  • Ancient Greece
  • The World Around Us (UK case study)

Science:

  • Forces and Magnets
  • Light
  • Plants
  • Rocks
  • Animals including humans

Throughout the year, formative assessments are carried out and each child’s progress is assessed against age-related expectations. Your child will therefore be in one of four broad bands for Reading, Writing and Maths:

  • Below Age-Related Expectations
  • Emerging
  • Expected
  • Exceeding

The expectation is that your child would be in the “Emerging” band at the start of the school year. This is because the curriculum for that year would not yet have been taught to your child. By the end of the school year, the expectation would be that your child would be in the “Expected” band. “Expected” means that your child is working at the expected level for a child of that age.

Homework will be sent home via the Home-School Contact Book, some homework will be set using PurpleMash, Mathletics and TT Rockstars. Please click on the links below:
