Reading is a huge focus at Teagues Bridge Primary School. We encourage the children to read their reading book along with books that spark their interest- this can all be recorded in their reading diary.

Value of the Month
The value of the month is Respect. Base 7 have been developing their understanding of respect and the importance of being respectful of others. Within class we have discussed the importance of respectful acts within school. Respect is one of the most important things at Teagues Bridge as every child must feel respected and safe within school. Every month we will have a values champion who will be announced by Mrs Abdulla in assembly.
Along with this, we are focusing on Iraq as our flag of the month!
This term our topic is called Anglo-Saxons and Scots
This term, Base 7 will learn about the Anglo-Saxons and Scots. Throughout this topic, the children will focus on Britain’s settlement by the Anglo-Saxons. The learning is based around our key knowledge question ‘How has the invasion of the Anglo-Saxons influenced the culture in Britain?’ The children will be able to recall on their prior knowledge by comparing similarities and differences between Invaders of Britain with a focus on invasion, monarchy, settlement, religion, and kingdoms. Throughout the topic the children will use a range of historical sources within their learning.
Our love to read book this term is ‘The Explorer’ by Katherine Rundell. The children have expressed their excitement to read this book. Each day we will read a quality picture book in our reading for pleasure sessions, which all children look forward to at the end of the day.
In Science, Base 7 will be focusing on Animals including humans. The children will study the circulatory system, learn about the basic components that make up the blood, how the heart works and how the blood circulates round the body. After that, we will look at the lungs and the process of breathing and investigating the effect of exercise on the heart and breathing rates.
