Welcome back to our summer term in school!
It was wonderful having everyone back together in March and now we move on to our summer term learning! This means we have a new topic focus: The Ancient World. As historians we will enjoy finding out about Ancient Egypt and as geographers we'll revisit our map skills and understanding of the world we live in. To find out more about the different aspects of the curriculum that we'll cover this term see the summer curriculum document further down this page.
In literacy we'll undertake adventure stories, haiku and cinquain poetry and also explore explanation texts, amongst other learning. Our maths will have a huge focus on fractions, exploring measure and recap on some aspects of our spring term learning. We'll still keep a huge focus on wellbeing, relationships and mental health, alongside all other learning.
Miss Lockwood will be returning to her sports coach role and PE will continue to be delivered on a Tuesday afternoon, so you will need to wear your PE kit on a Tuesday please. Also, remember no jewellery for PE, so please remove earrings before Tuesday, so the sessions can be undertaken safely.
The weekly spellings have been added to this page (see below) and the topic homework tasks are also available, if you wish to complete any additional tasks. As always , keep up with reading, Sumdog or TT Rockstars.
Let's enjoy our final term together!

Advice for Parents
You might be wondering how you can help your child at home with the work that we do in school. There are a number of ways that you can support with their reading, writing and maths. We have attached a grammar glossary, times table support (including the golden 50) and reading questions to ask your child when they're reading to you at home.
