Welcome to Base 5

Children' Work

What we are learning

We will be reading Catscape which is written by Mike Nicholson. He will be visiting our class to do a workshop with us and help the children to write their own story. Much of our English work will be to do with this book this term.

In Science lessons we will be thinking about how the human body works as well as looking at sound. In computing we will develop our research and word processing skills and continue to learn about coding.

As always, we will be using ICT to support our learning and discussing e-safety. In PSHE we will be talking about getting on and falling out which is a very important topic for the children to explore.


As an exciting extra to our curriculum this term, an artist will be coming in to work with Base 5 to do some Chinese themed art. The children will learn about China in their art lessons and create some amazing pieces of art which will be displayed around the school.




Important Dates


Monday and Thursday are our PE days this term. Children should bring their kit in on a Monday and take it home on Friday to be washed then return it the following Monday.

Spelling homework is usually set on a Monday and is due in on the Friday. The children need to practise their reading every day at home as well as continued practise of their times tables.
