Summer Term

Welcome back! We can’t believe how quickly the year is flying by!

This half term, we will be looking at ‘Our global family’ with a focus on the story Handa’s Surprise. We will use this story as a starting point to explore different communities and climates; looking particularly at the different creatures that live in these places. The children will be doing lots of comparing and contrasting, with emphasis on explaining their thoughts and ideas.  Our RE is focusing on the coming of the Holy Spirit and our Parish church and family. In Maths we will be consolidating the children’s knowledge of numbers to 10, extending to numbers beyond 20. We then move on to addition and subtraction and sharing and grouping.


Our PE day will remain on a Friday. Please ensure that your child comes to school wearing the correct PE kit. As it is still very cold and we will be outside, the children need to wear their PE jumper and trousers (rather than shorts). They should also be wearing suitable, black PE shoes.

Reading and Phonics

We will aim to listen to every child read and change your child’s book each week. Please continue to read their books and practise sounds at home daily. Please make sure that your child brings their book and reading record to school each day, so that we can read with them. Thank you for your support so far during this academic year.


We hope that you are enjoying following your child’s learning journey on tapestry. If you haven’t yet logged on to Tapestry, please have a go and let Mrs Torrington know if you have any problems. It is possible to create your own observation, if your child has done some learning at home that you would like to share.


Please ensure that your child brings their water bottle every day. This should contain fresh water please, rather than squash or flavoured water.

Please make sure that all uniform is named.


Many thanks for your ongoing support,

Mrs Mortimer and Miss Houghton
