Click on the link below for your bespoke Caterpilar Class guided power point with teacher voice over, get to know what we do in class and the ethos behind your child's learning... 

Welcome to Term 5 and 6!


As we move into Term 5 and 6 we will be travelling through our learning journey from the UK to Africa!

Our Topic - Go Wild in Africa!

Over the next two terms we will be finding out about the geography of the United Kingdom and comparing this to Kenya in Africa. We will be exploring the weather and why it's so different in these parts of the world. We will be taking a look at traditional African fabrics in art and design as well as African dance in PE. To kick us off we will be taking a pretend flight to Africa with an imaginative safari experience! I wonder if we will spot the big 5?! Getting to know the music, climate, people and lifestyle as well as the wildlife and how we are caring for our endangered species, is all a part of our topic - Go Wild in Africa! 

See our Learning Journey overview for more information of our leanring this term...

Lunch: You can bring a healthy packed lunch with you or order a lunch at school. 

Physical Education (PE): Please come to school dressed in your PE kit every Tuesday so you will be ready for an active afternoon of fun.

You will need: A named water bottle and school uniform, a waterproof coat every day. Please dress appropriately for the weather so we can all go out to play every day! 

Please do not bring in toys as we are minimising the spread of germs and this means as few items as possible between home and school. 

MyMaths and SpellingFrame homework will be set every 2 weeks, this supports learning by providing further exposure and embedding skills with contiued practice. Log-ins to be found inside your child's yellow diary.

Bring in your yellow diaries and finished books once you have read them at home, this is our indication to change your books for new ones. Everyone can bring in their book and diary every Friday, this helps us to celebrate reading efforts at home. Thank you. 


We believe practice is the key!

Find out more about practice and our ethos as a growth-mindset classroom below.

We are a Growth Mindset Classroom.

Growth mindset may be your child's key to success within school and life. Follow this link to watch a TED talk form Professor Dweck on what having a Growth mindset can mean for our children and ourselves as primary carers and role models.  

Oh yes... we even have a song!

We are Positive about Mental Health...

If you are concerned about your child's mental health come and speak to us. It is important our young people know how to have awareness of their own needs physically and mentally with the vocabulary to express themselves. This life-long skill will help them to navigate their childhood and beyond. Like all of us children, at times, may need some help and we are lucky enough to have 'Talk Space' at St Marks for this reason. Please talk to your class teacher, Mrs Stow or Judith directly if you would like to enquire as to spaces with her at Talk Space. 


Please don't hesitate to contact us for support and advice


Remember to keep up your and your child's 12 Rocks of well-being

daily to help promote the serotonin we all need to

reduce stress and live an enjoyable and fulfilling life...


Enjoy this guided medetation to help your child relax, breath deeply and calm their body. There is a great deal of science that suggests many brain boosting benefits to a few minutes of daily calm, focused and quiet time.
