Dear Parents/Carers,


Welcome back we hope that you had a wonderful break. Here is some information you may find useful and an overview of the learning that will be taking place this half term.



PE is on Thursday and Friday. Both of our sessions will be outside this half term (weather permitting).

Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school (white t-shirt, dark shorts and trainers). It is also really helpful if these items are labelled with your child’s name! Please can children leave their kits in school at all times, as sometimes the timetable can change. Trainers will be needed this half term!


Reading Books

Please try to listen to your child read every day and sign or tick their reading record book, showing that it had been read.

Our class library day is Monday when children may select a book at lunchtime to take home from the library.



This half term our topic is ‘Wonderful Wool”.


Science – We will be looking at materials. We will look at their characteristics and what these materials can make. We will also be focusing on wool and how it is made.


History – We will be looking at Armley Mills and how the wool trade had changed in the years and how jobs have changed.


Art – We will be using materials in different ways.


PE – Thursday – Outdoor and adventurous.

Friday – Athletics


Computing – Programming


RE and Music will be taught on a Wednesday by Miss Clark. They will be looking at how to use computers to research in computing and ‘What does it mean to belong to a Church or a Mosque?’ in RE.





Homework is set throughout the school half termly. They will have a few weeks to complete the project and can complete it in any way they like. Ways of presenting their work is:

  • Through writing
  • Photographs
  • Art work
  • Sculptures
  • Anything that inspires their creative side.


This half term we are looking at different materials. Could you choose a material and find out about it or make something with it?

Yours Faithfully,
