Welcome to the High Flyers' Class Page.
We will be using this as a window in to what goes on in class. Attached is a welcome PowerPoint and Letter that briefly highlights the routines of a typical day, along with some information about how you can help your child to achieve their full potential.
To help with this term's topic - Crime and Punishment - we have created a knowledge organiser that each child can use to begin to understand what will be taught throughout the topic. This document contains the essential knowledge we will be studying in class.
If your child could learn this section by section, as each week we will be testing them.
Some ways you could use the Knowledge Organiser at home -
Any other hints and tips that you have found useful would be welcomed.

Children will be asked to compare and group together everyday materials on the basis of their properties, including their hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity (electrical and thermal), and response to magnets.
They will also know that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution, and describe how to recover a substance from a solution.
