Information about what our pupils are learning this term.

We have had a great start to the new school year and the children have settled in really well.

To start off the term, each KS2 class has been getting hooked in a book and KS1 classes have been reading stories by their class author. It is wonderful to see how they really enjoy their reading and we are looking forward to the books reviews they are going to write. Our new library build is coming on fantastically and we look forward to opening it up to the children at the beginning of October.

Here are the Big Questions and links to curriculum newsletters for parents with details of what the children will be learning this term.

Year 5/6 – Upper Key Stage 2 – How has Grantham changed since our school was built? Why were the Romans so powerful and what did we learn from them?

Year 3/4 – Lower Key Stage 2 – Were the Egyptians awesome?

Year 1/2 - Key Stage 1 – Why is the Wii more fun than Grandma and Grandad’s old toys?
