Home Time 


We follow God Matters in Religious Education (the Portsmouth Diocese scheme of learning). The children learn two and a half hours in KS2 each week. Liturgical prayer occurs daily.


Things that help us learn

We use Mathletics to support children’s home learning and we will be continuing to use Google Classroom as our online learning platform in Key Stage 2. Reading books are sent home on a weekly basis which are pitched at your child’s current reading ability and at a level they can decode and comprehend at a 95% accuracy. Weekly spellings are sent home to consolidate understanding of spellings and spelling rules the children have been taught. Spellings for many children will be taken from Government issued statutory word lists.


Our Curriculum Web

Take a look at our class learning webs to view what the children will be learning throughout the year.



We hope to have a historical visit linked to ‘The changing Power of the Monarchy’. This will support the children’s History curriculum in the Summer Term. We will keep you updated.  To review the life of Jesus we visit Wintershall in the Summer Term
