Welcome to Crystal Class!


Mrs.Doe and Mrs.Gingell welcome you back and are looking forward to helping the children with their learning. We hope you had a lovely summer holiday and that you enjoyed the rest!


We have lots of fantastic things to look forward to this term. Our topic is the Stone Age to the Iron Age and we will be starting to understand the key events through history, geography, dance, art and design and technology.


In writing, we will be using historical events by making links to our topic to write stories. In guided reading, we will be exploring texts and answering comprehension questions about them. We will be enjoying reading Stig of the Dump as our class book. In maths, we will continue to practice and consolidate all the different methods for adding and subtracting,  as well as embedding our knowledge on place value. Computing is all about digital literacy and communication. In PE we will be doing dance and Real PE, which is skills and games based. And Learn4Life is all about keeping our bodies and minds healthy.


P.E Times:

Crystal - Wednesday and Thursday.

Please ensure that your child has a change of t-shirt, shorts and suitable P.E. shoes on these days. As one of our PE sessions will take place outside, jogging bottoms can be worn on chilly days, providing they are black.



Children are expected to read daily and practice times tables and given spellings. Maths and English homework will be given every other week. This will be handed out on a Friday and returned on a Wednesday. Optional topic homework will be given once a term.


Drop off/pick up:

All children are to be accompanied by an adult to the KS2 gate in the mornings and to be collected from the hall doors in the afternoons. Please wait with your child/children until the gates are opened at 8:45am.

Science Week 2017

Science Week 2017 1 We investigated gravity.
Science Week 2017 2 We measured the mass (in grams) of objects.
Science Week 2017 3 We measured the weight of them in Newtons.
Science Week 2017 4 We used a Newton Meter.
Science Week 2017 5 We compared the mass and the weight.
Science Week 2017 6 We found that as the mass increased...
Science Week 2017 7 So did the weight.
Science Week 2017 8 We plotted our results on a comparison graph.
Science Week 2017 9 We were then able to make predictions...
Science Week 2017 10 about other objects.
