Welcome Bees, Caterpillars and Ladybirds!


Welcome back to Summer Term 2024! We hope you have had a lovely break with your families and are well-rested in preparation for the new term - it's a busy one!


In English this term we will study ‘Charlotte’s Web’ by E.B White. Then later on in the term, we will be reading  'Smash and Grab' by John Doherty, and you will also have the chance to create your own mystery story.


In mathematics, we will revisit all topics taught this year to consolidate and build upon your learning. The topics we will cover are:

  • Number and Place Value
  • Addition and Subtraction
  • Multiplication and Division
  • Fractions
  • Measurement
  • Geometry and Properties of Shape
  • Time
  • Statistics


Alongside this, we will continue to learn and practise times tables using Times Table Rockstars. Please continue to practise these at home!


Our science unit this term is: 'Light'. Your learning will include: how light travels, different light sources and all about reflection through various experiments.


In geography and history, we will learn all about the Ancient Greeks. This which will include lessons based on their culture and religious beliefs. Additionally, you will learn about battles that took place during this period and your weaponry and armour


Your weekly homework this term will be as follows:


  • Reading daily with an adult and recording this in Pupil Planners.
  • Learning spellings (set on a Monday and tested on a Friday).
  • Grammar study book - teachers will specify which pages each week.
  • Mathematics study book - teachers will specify which pages each week.
  • Additional handwriting tasks.
  • Weekly practise of specific multiplication tables.
  • Optional further practise of core skills through Reading Plus, TTRS and Mathletics online.


We will all continue to follow the school rules: ‘Ready, Respectful, Safe’ and model our school values: ‘Bravery, Respect, Integrity, Determination, Generosity and Excellence’, as well as always demonstrating beautiful manners. Good behaviour will be noticed, your name will be written on our recognition board and recognition time on a Friday afternoon will be filled with fun and exciting activities! Exemplary behaviour will be rewarded with a ‘Golden Ticket’ which will mean that you will be put into a raffle and have a chance of receiving a special reward with Mrs Moloi (the Headteacher). We are looking forward to sharing your successes with you.


Don't forget, there also Weekend Wonders you can complete with your family and optional extension activities which are attached below. 


We are looking forward to working with you this term!
