Mrs Shenton is our Class Teacher for the Summer Term, supported by Mr Smith.

Homework -

Homework is given on a friday and is due in the following wednesday. If you or your child have any questions or need any support with homework, please do not hesistate to ask.


​Daily maths calculations -

​Each night, the children are give 2 calculations to complete at home for the following day. This gives the children extra practice of areas covered in maths lessons. These calculations are discussed as a class at the beginning of Basic Skills each morning, giving the children the opportunity to ask any questions if they have not fully understood the task.


P.E -

Our P.E day is Wednesday. Please ensure that P.E kits are in school all week and if they are taken home for washing, ensure they are back in school as soon as possible.

In the Spring Term, the children’s focus will be Dance.  The children will develop their flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance and perform dances using a range of movement patterns.  They will take skills they have learnt and apply them to create actions and sequences of movement.  The children will watch each other, recognise successes and offer evaluations and improvements on performance.

Geography -

Our Geography topic this term is ‘Rainforests’. The children will take a closer look at the mysteries of tropical rainforests.  From the layers of the forest to its animal inhabitants, to the unique climate found in the tropics.  They will compare a British forest with the Amazon Rainforest, and begin to explore some of the conservation issues surrounding the destruction of Rainforests.


A few reminders…

Reading books/Home-school books have to be in school daily – supporting your child with reading and learning at home will enable them to make more progress, so this is really important.  You can write comments about reading in the back of the children’s Home-school books but please also feel free to communicate with me in these books.

As a final note, if you have any concerns or questions about your child’s learning or any other aspect of school life, please come and see me, my door is always open.  Many thanks for your continued support.
