Summer Term

Welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful break. We are looking forward to another exciting and busy term ahead!



This term our topic will be about Rainforests. We will be  finding out about where rainforests are located in the world, the different layers of a rainforest as well as the plants and animals that you might find in a rainforest.

HOMEWORK CHALLENGE... Can you research or create something linked to rainforests? It might be an artefact of something you might find in the forest or something a rainforest explorer might need for an adventure! It could be a research project about animals of the rainforest or information about fair trade and deforestation! Good luck!


Early Bird Reading!

Every morning, the children are reading in school before registration. Thank you to all the parents that are able to stay and listen to their children read - it is creating a lovely calm start to our school day and the children's reading continues to improve!



To help your children at home...

  • Maths - practise 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables

  • Writing - practise spelling common exception words to help improve writing.


Useful Information:

PE: Tuesday & Wednesday.

Please ensure you child has a named PE kit in school at all times. Thank you!


Warmer weather

As the weather (hopefully!) gets hotter and sunnier, please remember to send your child into school with a sun hat. Sun cream can also be brought in as long as your child is able to apply it themselves, alternatively you can apply it before school.



Please check your child's hair regularly for headlice and treat if necessary.
