Summer Term

Welcome back to the Spring term.  I hope you’ve had a lovely break and enjoyed spending time with your friends and family especially now SATs are over.

This term we will  be focusing on writing with lots of other exciting projects as well.  For the first two weeks we will look at Picture This!  We will create our own perspective drawing using the picture by Bruegal.

Miss Jackson will continue to teach on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday with Mrs Rayner in class all day Thursday and Mrs Sissons will support the children throughout the week


Home Learning

Home learning will consist of 2 pieces each week. As well as this we feel that the following basic skills are really important and will help the children for the rest of the year.  Home learning will be given out after boosters on a Monday and is to be handed in the following Monday.  Please encourage your child to make use of the ‘SATs Surgery’ sessions on a Wednesday and Friday mornings between 8:45 – 9:30, if they are struggling to complete it.

Reading:  We would like children to read at home 3 times a week and for a parent/carer to sign their reading diary. These will be checked by volunteers in school and all children who read 18 or more times over half term will receive a prize before the holidays.

Times tables:  For Maths, a fast recall of times tables if very important to help children with all areas of maths.  For this reason we’d like the children to practise the times tables for their year group, forwards and backwards.  In Year 6 it is vital that children know all the times tables including the corresponding division facts.

Handwriting:  We will also be sending a ‘handwriting guide’ that can be used to copy and practise letter formation.  This will include a line guide, which can be placed under a piece of plain paper to practise whenever the children have time.  We won’t be expecting to have these handed in, as teachers will see the skills transferred into the children’s writing in their books at school.

  • Our PE days are Monday and Friday. Your child will need an indoor PE kit (Plain white t-shirt and black shorts) and an outdoor kit (tracksuit and trainers rather than pumps please as we use the ball court and playing field which can get very muddy!
