Caldershaw Collection

Please find a list of books that we will encourage your child to read and enjoy in their year group. The list will give your child a range of different reading experiences, across many different genres. We believe this will encourage a love of reading and give your child more opportunities and exposure to a wide variety of new vocabulary and develop their reading skills further. They would also make ideal presents from family that would support their reading journey through school.


We have started our year with place value. We have been partitioning using our base 10. The children then started to flexibly partition, not only using 100's,10's and 1's but mixing up the number into different splits.


This half term we are studying the Tudors. We have started our learning with the War of the Roses. The children are enjoying researching the Monarchs and using our History display to support this. 

Home Challenges

Spellings and Times tables will come home on a Wednesday to be tested the following Wednesday.

At Caldershaw we know how important reading is: not only to enable us to find out about the world and research specific topics, but (most importantly) in giving life long pleasure.

Please read a book every night and record it in your reading record (remember: all books count). A few pages will do, but make sure you understand what you've read!



In English we are studying the book 'Sparky' by Jenny Offill & Chris Appelhans.

We are creating our own Sparky Character and writing Non Chronological reports on them. 


In Science we are looking at Magnets and forces. In our first lesson we explored magnets and wrote down questions that we would like to find out the answer to over the topic.

The next lesson we looked at 'pushing' and 'pulling' forces around us. The children looked for different examples of pushing and pulling around school and on the playground.
