We are currently focusing on fractions, decimals and percentages. If you are in a shop anywhere and see a good January sale with 50% off, 20% off etc. feel free to challenge them on what the item will cost before you arrive at the till!



Our current focus: Newspaper reports

We are currently writing newspapers all about Tutankhamun and the discovery of his tomb. Journalists in the making, our completed reports will be sent to the Derbyshire Times to show off our skills.


Next week, we will be looking at the text Egyptian Cinderella to help us write a narrative for a younger audience, we will be sending our narratives to Belper Library and down to Key Stage 1. 

History / Geography / D&T / Art:


The children are currently learning all about the Ancient Egyptians. We had an amazing experience on Thursday, where we went to an Ibu to watch an apprentice embalmer mummify a body! Photos will appear soon.



We are currently learning all about materials and their properties. This week, we conducted an experiment looking at magnetism, hardness, flexibility, transparency and permeability. Photos to add soon!


We have PE on a Wednesday with Mr Smith and a Tuesday with Mrs Ball. Please ensure you have your PE kit in every day. Also ensure any long hair can be placed up in a bobble / hair band, as well as earrings being removed. Children cannot place tape over their earrings. 




This year, we are so lucky to have Mrs Schuman teaching us for French on a Friday afternoon!
