Summer Term

Welcome back everyone. We hope you have had a lovely break and are looking forward to the rest of the school year. It is going to be a busy one!

For some of you, it will be your final term at primary school - Year Six, this is your real chance to shine as you prepare for your move to high school in September. Year 5, you are going to follow in their footsteps sooner than you realise - in one terms time you be the oldest children in our school. In the meantime, for all of you, work hard with us this term and make every lesson count. We have some great activities planned for you - including Sport's Day and concerts to look forward to later in the term. (Details will follow in a few weeks). Year 6 will also begin their transition to high school later in the term. You will be notified of the dates as soon as we have them.

Here is a quick overview of some of the lesson content we will be covering before the end of the summerr. The full long term plan for the year can found at the bottom of this page.

English: We will be reading and enjoying 'The Viewer' by Gary Crew. It will form the main stimulus for our fiction writing. We will also read and write recounts lnking to our work in history.

Maths: Geometry, area, perimeter and volume will be the main focus for this half term. We will also cover work on transformations and problem solving. Yr 6 will have lots of opportunities to prepare for their SATs too.

Science: We will learn about living things and their habitats.

Our history work will be all about the Mayan civilisation. This will tie in with this term's art theme of central an south American art.

ICT: We will use Purple Mash to learn skills in modelling and designing concept ma..

Music: Brass lessons will continue to take place on Wednesday afternoons.

PE: This term, PE will take place on Wednesdays and Fridays. We ask that the children come into school in the PE kit on those days only please. 



New spellings will be given every Monday and tested the following week. You should be practising your times tables at home. Parents, please sign their reading diary when you've heard your child read. We expect a minimum 3 x 15 minutes each week. Maths homework books will be set on Monday by Mrs Bebbbnigton to be in the following Monday. Miss Whittingham will send the English CGP book home on Thursday to be in the following Thursady. Pages to be completed should be found in the children's homework diaries.

Extra activities to do at home include:

  • Purple Mash - 
  • Accelerated Reader - the children can complete quizzes on the books they have been reading at home.
  • Times Table Rockstars (TTRS)


We also ask, can children bring a small bag to school and one coat as there is limited space in the corridor outside the classroom.  They will be provided with their own stationery but are welcome to bring their own pencil cases in to class  Water bottles must be filled and labelled with names.  After lunch, children will be given the option of refilling water bottles.

So, here's to a happy, hardworking and healthy term. Please do contact us if you need any more information. We thank you all for your continued support.

Miss Whittingham and Mrs Bebbington
