Summer Term


 This term we will focus initially on creating Kennings.  

These are poems which form a kind of riddle.

Later in the term we will learn about Fables.  

It might be good to read some of Aesop's fables at home. 

We will also learn to write explanations.  




This year we are developing our maths teaching inspired by the Singapore approach.

In our lessons children are encouraged to physically represent mathematical concepts. Objects and pictures are used to demonstrate and visualise abstract ideas, alongside numbers and symbols.

Mathematical concepts are explored in a variety of representations and problem-solving contexts to give pupils a richer and deeper learning experience.





Stone Age Britain to life in the Iron Age is studied in our final topic of the year.

To support this fascinating topic we will also take a trip to Butser Celtic Farm. 




This term's R.E. is a study of Hinduism answering the question; What helps Hindus to worship?





 We will begin our science work by learning about light and shadows.  

We will also investigate magnetic forces.  

Our study of humans and animals looks at the skeleton and muscles. 




Cricket skills and dance activities will be studied alongside a range of athletic pursuits.

Children will all take part in Sports Day, competing for their house.  Parents and guardians are invited to come along and show their support. 

Those top performing athletes will be invited to compete in the district sports competition this term,representing Northmead against other local schools.  




In the first half of the term we will help children to reflect on their behaviour and the consequences of the choices they make.

As the school year comes to an end we think about changes.




This term we will investigate 'Scratch' which allows children to design, write and debug programs creating simple animations. 




Our final topic; "Stone Age to Iran Age" is a fascinating study of British history. The children will investigate and compare the Stone Age and the Iron Age. To support this topic, we will also take a trip to Butser Ancient Farm.
