This year, we are going to have a big focus on how we can make Haydon Abbey greener. Our planet is precious and we all need to work together to take care of it!


Recycling by reusing and repurposing something that we already have is a great way help reduce how much waste we produce.


Could you change something that you have and use it as something else? For example, you could decorate a bottle and use it as a handy pencil holder or fill it with rice to make a shaker.

You could make your idea or make a poster to tell us all about your ‘green’ idea.



This half term, we will be learning all about The Romans and how they invaded Britain We will be exploring the effect that this had on Britain and how Britain was changed by the Roman Empire.


Can you research what life was like for people living in Britain during the Roman Empire?


Can you find out anything that we still use today that the Romans introduced to Britain.


You could make a model of it or make an information booklet.

In English this half term we are going to delve more into our topic by reporting on the spread of the Roman Empire through Newspaper reports.


Great reporters need to interview people to find out the story.


You could interview your family or friends about something that has happened recently and report back what you find out. You could write a Newspaper report or write down the answers to your questions.




This half term we are going to discuss our Dreams and Goals.


Think about what you want to achieve this year at school, home or somewhere else. How will you achieve it?


You could write about it, draw a picture, write instructions of how to achieve it, write a poem or show it in another way. We would love to hear when you achieve your goal too!

This half term we will be revisiting ‘Number’ and the four operations; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will be continuing our ‘Multiplication Marathon’ each week, so will have a big focus on times tables. Please join in with these fabulous songs and dances to help your child with their tables: See links below table


Prodigy is a great game to practice maths skills:

It is important to eat the right foods and the right amount of foods.


Can you design a nutritional meal for an animal or a human and explain how it is an appropriate meal for them.


Present this information anyway you would like! You could draw it, make it out of playdough, paint a picture or another brilliant way.
