This term we will be reading, Boy in the Tower by Polly Ho-Yen. This text is based in south-London and is told from the perspective of Ade who lives on the 17th floor of a tower block. He loves where he lives and looking out at the world beneath him. But one day, other tower blocks and buildings around him begin to fall down – Ade and his mum become trapped. Through this intriguing story, we will apply our growing SPaG skills producing journalistic writing, formal letters, non-chronological reports and narrative writing. 



In RE lessons we will start the term by considering whether fame and the Christian faith go together. We will then go onto think about the journey of life and death. This will involve investigating beliefs about life and life after death. We will have the opportunity to share feelings of loss caused by separation, learn about how faith can provide believers with answers to life’s most challenging questions and also how faith challenges our attitudes, values and commitments in life. We will apply and build on our understanding of Christianity and Islam within this topic. 


We will use some of our reading sessions to delve deeper into Boy in the Tower whilst other lessons will be structured on developing the Key Stage 2 content domain through a range of fiction and non-fiction texts. 



This term we will be thinking about dreams and goals. We will think about our personal learning goals and the steps to success, our dreams for the world and how we can make a difference. We will finish the topic by recognising our own achievements.



We will continue to develop our mathematical fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills in our lessons.

We will continue to have Topical Talk lessons using their one hour materials. Through these lessons the children will participate in informed and open-minded discussions about the biggest issues of our time, whilst developing essential critical-thinking and communication skills. The first topic we will study will be, Our World in 2023. Login to the hub and join the discussion. 


This term, we will be learning about living things and their habitats. We will build on prior learning by sorting animals into groups based on their similarities and differences. We will find out about the standard system of classification first developed by Carl Linnaeus. We will have the opportunity to design their own ‘curious creature’ and classify it based on its characteristics. We will learn about micro-organisms, and investigate the growth of mould on bread. 



This term our topic will be Globalisation. We will learn what globalisation is, how it has changed the way we communicate and affects trade. We will learn about the impact of globalisation on fashion, food and how it impacts our own lives. This exciting topic will provide us with many cross-curricular opportunities including art and design and technology.
