Head Teacher’s Message
Hello everyone. Welcome back to the start of the summer term. We have lots of new and exciting activities planned for the children to take part in this term, and we hope to see you to tell you all about your child’s new learning at our Parent Consultation days later term. Please try your best to come and see the wonderful work that your child produces.
Lastly, let’s hope that the sun shines, the flowers the children have planted in our secret garden grow and we all have lots of fun on the school’s Sports Day on July 12th.

Our work for this term

This term in English we are learning about Poetry. We will be listening to poems, saying poems, reading poems and writing our own poems. We will be learning about words that rhyme.
We will be writing a Caterpillar diary to record the progress of our class caterpillars.
We will be listening to stories about animals.
After half term we will be mainly doing work on non-fiction texts. We will be writing reports, fact files and instructions.

In Maths, we will be covering addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, shape, telling the time, weight and capacity, position and direction.
Some children will be working on number bonds to 10, while others will be learning 2, 5 and 10 times tables.

In the first part of the term we will be continuing the work on Pets and Animals. Later in the half term, we will be studying Light and Shadows.
Following the half term break, our topic will be Water. This will be mainly Science based, but will also involve art and craft activities and other curriculum areas. 

(What we are teaching children to help them keep safe)
Throughout the year, we have followed the tooth brushing scheme. We will also be spending time finding out about personal hygiene, toilet routines and general cleanliness.
We will be talking to the children about Road safety and keeping ourselves safe when we are out and about.
