Lees Hall Woods

Welcome to Lees Hall! 

Class Teacher: Mrs. S. F. Smith.

Teaching Assistant: Mrs. J. Knowles.


Our class motto : 'Be the Change You want to See'!


Reading is our number 1 priority! In class we love to read and value the knowledge and the skills it gives us! Reading literacy is crucial to functioning well in adult life. We are having a half-termly 'Bug Club' competition, where the child who has read the most books receives a reward!   

This term our topic has had a history theme and we have been studying ' Britain's Settlement by the Anglo-Saxons and Scots'. The children have produced lots of wonderful 'historical' writing, created illuminated letters and outstanding homework projects! We had a fantastic learning experience at Weston Park Museum, where we learnt about 'The Man from Benty Grange' and found out that the first 'Anglo-Saxon' helmet to be discovered, was actually in Derbyshire!


We are continuing with Place-Value, Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Division. The children then apply these skills through Problem Solving activities!






Science: Our New topic is : Animals including humans

We will be learning to:

  • identify and name the main parts of the human circulatory system, and describe the functions of the heart, blood vessels and blood.
  • recognise the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on the way our bodies function.

describe the ways in which nutrients and water are transported within animals, including humans.

Re: Belonging!

Our focus will be studying Scripture that shows how we are called, by God, to belong to His family. We will learn of the rights and responsibilities of being 'called'.
