Class Teacher - Miss Barber

Mrs Longhurst will be teaching the class on a Monday afternoon and a Friday afternoon.


Should you wish to contact me about your child, please catch me during drop off and pick up, or do so via my email address


There will be a 'Meet the Teacher' meeting on Tuesday 12th September at 2.30pm. 

Extra information:

  • PE days will be on a Monday and Wednesday. 
  • Homework, which will either be set on paper or using an internet-based platform such as Mathletics, will be set on a Friday and due in the following Thursday. 
  • In addition to their weekly Homework, it is expected that children read everyday at home. This can be independently, however regular reading with an adult is still very important for pupils in UKS2. 



At the beginning of each spelling unit, a note will come home in 'Reading Records' which will state the spelling rule being focused on in school. As well as this, children will also receive a word bank that supports children to practise using the rule. Children will be expected to complete additional research to build their word bank and further their understanding of the rule. At the end of each 'unit' we will then have a spelling challenge where children will be asked to apply their knowledge. (These spelling challenges will not always take place on the same day as some units will be longer or shorter than others.)

Welcome to the Autumn term 2023-24!


This term our project is called "Who let the Gods out?"


We will be developing our historical and geographical skills throughout our project as we learn more about Ancient Greece.


Our concept question is - Are you a thinker or a fighter? This is linked to our historical study of Ancient Athens and Ancient Sparta. One state valued thinking, while the other valued being strong warriors.
