Welcome to Neptune class. The class teacher is Mr Colin Taylor and the teaching assistants are Mrs Browne and Mrs Riggs.
This term we will be studying the topic, ‘The Dark Ages.’ The class will research the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings, examining their lifestyles, beliefs, laws and notable figures. The class will read the story Beowulf as well as other books covering this story which tell the story from Grendal’s point of view.
In English, the topic will be extended further with the class writing a set of instructions about how to capture the monster Grendal. The class will also read stories with a twist at the end and they will then write their own. Whilst in Maths, we will progress the children’s learning in number, place value, decimals whilst applying that learning with reasoning exercises and word problems.
During RE, the class will be using the new curriculum’s questions to examine their learning and access a deeper understanding of the topic. This term the children will study the question, ‘What do Christians learn from the creation story?’ In PE, indoor games will be led by Mrs Hays and an P.E. coach. Outdoor learning will focus on team work and problem solving, whilst outdoor PE will be led by Mr Taylor and Ms Massie.
