Summer Term 2021 

Welcome back!


We are having a cycling 'Mini Olympics' on 22nd June so please bring your bike and helmet to school on that day.


This half term in English we will be reading lots of books about the Arctic and Antarctica. Starting with 'Ice Trap!' by Meredith Hooper. We will be looking at both fiction and non fiction books and we will be writing diary entries.


Reading Books

Children will bring a reading book home and it can be changed on a Friday.


We will continue working with fractions this half term and addition and subtraction.

We will also be continuing with our school wide push towards increasing times tables fluency so please encourage your child to  use Times Tables Rock Stars and work on learning 3x, 4x, and 8x tables off by heart.



Our Topic for this term is Geography based. In this topic we will be learning about the Polar Regions, longitude, latitude and the Equator.


 Our Science topic for this term is Forces and magnets. 

This half term we will be going outside for our P.E lesson where possible. Our P.E. day is Monday.  Children will need to come in footwear and black jogging bottoms appropriate for outdoor P.E on our P.E day. We will also be making use of the Running Track on a regular basis. We will be having some cycling sessions too (16th and 23rd June - no bike from home needed on these dates, PE kit can be worn).


Homework will be set on TEAMS each Wednesday. Please return the homework by the following Tuesday to allow for work to be marked.



Please check planners for weekly spellings. They will be sent home on Wednesday to be tested the following Wednesday.


How can you help your child at home?


Please read with your child as often as possible.  Ask questions about the plot, characters and what they think will happen.
