During the Spring term in Cedar we will be investigating the Industrial Revolution. The Industrial Revolution began around 1760 and it led to many of the biggest changes of the Victorian era. The Industrial Revolution introduced new machines, new industries and new jobs. It was a time when the manufacturing of goods (items) moved from small shops and homes to large factories. This shift brought about changes in culture as people moved from rural areas to big cities in order to work. Take a look at this terms knowledge organiser, spring planning overview and long term plan which is at the bottom of this page.

Reading plays a fundamental part in all areas of the curriculum. Over the year, we will immerse ourselves in high quality texts which will help to drive our learning. In class we have access to a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books which we are able to use not only within our Guided Reading sessions, but also when appropriate in our curriculum lessons to support our learning. Each term we have a spotlight author who has been chosen for their high-quality texts. Over the course of the term we will have to opportunity to listen to, read and learn more about these fantastic authors. Having this literacy-rich enviroment will encourage a positive culture of reading within our class and promote the children's enjoyment of reading. 

PE will be on a Thursday and a Friday, please can children come into school on Thursday's and Friday's already in their PE kits, thank you.

In RE this term, we will start by exploring Jesus.   We will then move to enquiring about Lent and Easter.  


Please ensure that your child reads at home at least 4 times a week; they are expected to record their reading in the home/school diary. Parents just need to sign /initial each time; reading is so important and it's amazing fun too! Please, please emphasise that reading is a hugely fun thing to do, so if they have any interests that read about at home, please put it in their home/school diary as reading is reading! 30mins reading a magazine is still reading especially if they can tell you all about it afterwards to ascertain their understanding.

TT Rockstars and the children's individual spellings should be practised regularly and either handed in, if written, or a note left in the home-school diary to say they have practised.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch. On top of the usual termly spellings and reading, a maths or English homework will be set every Friday. This will usually cover work that we have done in maths or in English that week (alternate weeks) but sometimes it may be topic based and perhaps require some research.

Our Class Author of the Term is C.S. Lewis; we will be reading The Lion , the Witch and the Wardrobe.
