All pupils at Northdown Primary are divided into five houses, each one representing one of our core values. Everyday each child can earn pride points to contribute towards their house. At the beginning of each week we will celebrate the winning house in our celebration assembly.


Over the course of the year we will cover several different topics such as Roald Dahl stories, the Great Fire of London, Explorers, Africa and much more. On our class page we will be posting information, pictures and lots of other exciting things so you can see what wonderful learners we are.

Term 1: Roald Dahl


Throughout this topic we will be reading and exploring many books written by Roald Dahl.  As a class we will looking through many of his books to try and find any of his 250 new words he created. As the term goes on  we will be learning facts about Roald Dahl and his family.


In literacy at the start of the term we will focus on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory:

We are going to look at the different dilemmas that happen throughout the story and the different characters they happen too. We are going to create our own character with their own dilemma. 


In maths we are going to focus on: addition and subtraction on a number line, multiplication and division using arrays and then the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. 


Ask your child what 2D and 3D shapes they know? See if they can list the different properties.
