Spring Term 1 - Chock-a-block
'We are the music-makers and we are the dreamers of dreamers' - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Welcome back to another exciting half term where we will be learning all about chocolate! We will be creating our very own chocolate invention and putting our maths skills to the test by selling our hand-made chocolate to the rest of the school. We will also be exploring trade by looking into the importance of Fairtrade and how we can help to support the organisation. In English we will be reading the texts 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' and 'George's Marvellous medicine' by the well-known author Roald Dahl. In Maths we will be developing our knowledge of multiplication, division and fractions.

Spring Term Newsletter
In October we went on a galactic adventure to Spaceport in Liverpool where we enhanced our learning about space. We had a fantastic day learning new facts and exploring space further.
We visited a primary school in Shadsworth, Blackburn where we made a lot of new friends.
We were all split into different groups, mixed in with the pupils of Shadsworth Junior school and took part in sports, science, art and ICT activities. We enjoyed meeting new people and making new friends and are very excited to invite them to our school in the Spring term.
