Welcome to Term 1!  Everyone has had a great start to the year.  


Our topic for Terms 1 and 2 is:

The Forces of Nature


Have a look at the Topic Web we will use as a basis for our lessons and the questions we want to explore. 

For the next two terms we will be exploring the the forces of nature which include tsunamis, volcanos and earthquakes.  We'll also have computing skills learning to code and how to be safe online, electricity cycles in science, answer the questions 'How do Muslims show commitment to God?' in RE, look at place value and the four operations and use 'The Phone Booth in Mr Hirota's Garden' to stimulate our writing.

Here is the PowerPoint from the Meet The Teacher evening on the 13.9.2023


Here is the homework for 22.9.2023 to be handed in on 27.9.2023.  Please complete your tables, Doodle Maths, reading (5 times a week) and spellings too.


A Few Reminders:

P.E. is on Mondays and Thursdays - please still come to school wearing your Farmborough School P.E. uniform on those days.

Please could children bring reusable water bottles into school as we are trying to be more eco-friendly.

Homework is given out on Fridays and handed in the following week on Wednesday (or before if you've finished it!). Spelling test is on Friday.

Home-school book to be brought in every day.  It will get looked at on Fridays and house points will be awarded for the number of times your have read.  Please practise your spelling words (x3), your times-tables and record your reading with a parent's initial next to the reading you have done (at least x3).  Doodle Maths is expected to be done weekly so the children are in their green zones.
