What we will be learning this Summer half-term:


Our unit of learning this half-term is 'The Generation Game (Young & Old)'.

No matter who we are, we all have one thing in common – we are growing older every day. Thanks to advances in health, science and medical care, most people can now expect to live longer than at any time before in history. However, with this comes a great responsibility. Not only must we take better care of ourselves – staying fit and healthy, both physically and mentally – we must also take care of others, ensuring that our society respects and values everyone, regardless of their age.


In Art, we'll be finding out:

How we can use art to explore the themes of childhood and old age

How we can use sculpture to capture the movement and energy of youth

How we can create a magazine product for a target age group


In History, we'll be finding out:

How we remember important moments of our lives

How we can find out about an important event from the past

About the jobs that some children did in the past

About popular games and pastimes from the past

What school life was like in different periods in history


In International, we'll be finding out:

About ‘coming of age’ celebrations from different countries and cultures

About popular children’s games and pastimes from around the world


In Society, we’ll be finding out:

About how society views the elderly

What we hope to see happen during our own lifetime

How we can create a community centre to meet the needs of young and old people



We have a diverse range of books to support your child's reading within the school, and we hope this will enable your child to experience a range of authors and styles of books. In terms of reading, we want children to be able to :

  • Enjoy reading and see it as a pleasurable leisure activity, as well as a means of following instructions and finding things out.  
  • Have the reading skills necessary to read a range of text types for pleasure and for information.
To be confident and competent readers children need to have access to a range of reading experiences. This includes reading as much as possible at home. Most children will be responsible for selecting their own reading book and changing these when they are finished.

St. Martha's model of an electric circuit

Electrons in a circuit
Battery pushing the electrons around the circuit
Light-bulb lighting up
Electrons traveling around the wire
A complete circuit
The electrons have stopped moving
Light-bulb turns off when electrons stop moving
Electrons are everywhere in the wire

I Know Who I Am Lyrics

St Martin de Porres, please learn this song for our class assembly on Wednesday.
