Mr Preston

Welcome to the Autumn Term

Welcome back! During this Autumn Term we will be looking at new and exciting topics, checking out our Learning Logs from the Summer Break and getting settled into our new classes!

What’s happening this term

During this Autumn Term we will be looking at our topic, "SPACE".This is a really engaging Science topic, looking at the Solar System we live in and what has been discovered there. We will be focusing on the planetary bodies and how they all interact with each other to create our night/day cycle and the seasons. We will also be looking at prominent scientists and their discoveries.

Geography will be a study of Britain and the rest of the world, looking at major landmarks, map work and locating places.

Spellings will being with a focus on important topic words and will be given out to learn each week for a test the following Monday

Class Rules

  • Follow adults instructions
  • Respect each others opinions and think before you speak
  • Respect each others property and look after the classroom
  • Try your hardest in everything you do & have a positive mindset
  • Help people who feel sad and don't leave anyone out



Homework will be given out every Wednesday for Literacy for all groups but will be group specific for Numeracy (see your child's planner for details).

We will be having a particular focus on Timestables each week, using Timestable Rockstars to make this a fun and engaging activity. This can be done at home any time and support in encouraging your child would be appreciated.


Every pupil has been given a Reading Record that is to be used in school and taken home with their chosen reading book. The expectation is that they will read at least three times to themselves out of school and record this in the book. Ideally, at least one of these sessions will be to an adult at home. This encourages your child to read and also gives you chance to see what progress they are making.

Reading Records will be collected in every Friday to be checked. Children completing this successfuly will be rewarded with Table Points.


Indoor PE lessons will begin with fitness and indorr athletics.

Our second session of PE will be on a Wednesday and will be Tag Rugby led by a Sports Coach.

Children not in the correct PE kit will not be allowed to take part in the lesson.

Year 6 Children will be taking part in Swimming Lessons every Tuesday.
