Class Saint


St Therese of Lisieux

Patron St of Missionaries

St Therese of Lisieux taught us how we can show God's love in 'little ways'; though our actions and words.

We take inspiration from this Saint in our own lives so that we can show love to one another,

just as Jesus told us to do.

Feast day, Tuesday, 1st October

Science Topic

This half-term, we will be investigating Light and Shadow. The children will learn how light travels, how objects can absorb, block or let through light and how shadow is an absence of light. They will learn to work scientifically; conducting fair tests to explore how light travels


History or Geography Topic

Our History focus this term involves studying the prehistory of Britain, from the Stone Age through to the Iron Age. During lessons, the children will be carrying out research to answer questions such as ‘What was it like to live during the Stone Age in Britain?’ or ‘Are there any inventions from this era that we still use today?’


Art or D&T Topic

In art, the children will explore using a range of paint brushes to create a different effect and will learn how to create effect backwashes, in preparation for cave art paintings inspired by the Stone Age.
