As the Spring term was so disruptive, we haven’t quite finished our topic of India, so we will continue with this for the first 2 weeks back in school. For the remainder of the Summer term our topic will then be Roald Dahl’s Heroes and Villains. There will be a particular focus on the books ‘The Twits’ and ‘The BFG’. If you have not yet read these books with your child, please don’t, as we will read them together as a class.
After May half term, I plan to show the children ‘The BFG’ on DVD, but as this is classed as a PG, please let me know if you would prefer for your child not to watch it, by either contacting the school office, sending a note into school or emailing me.
As always the menu of SIX tasks will be given and you will have a choice of which activity they complete over each two week period. By the end of the term you will be expected to have completed all six tasks in full and to the best of your ability. A change to this year is that we will not be asking for the homework to come back into school. Instead we would love to see pictures and work completed in the Google Classroom or via email. Your work will still be shared and celebrated within the classroom, as we love to see your hard work.

Spellings and Times Table test will continue to be on Mondays. Spellings will be available here on the website so no excuses that you haven’t had your words! We will be sending a sheet of your words home every week and they will no longer be stuck into a book.
Here are the Week 3 spellings for each group, for a test on Monday 19th April
Mental arithmetic books cannot be sent home anymore unfortunately, but children will be set maths tasks on Mymaths to complete weekly and children can also practise their times tables on TT Rockstars or on ‘Hit the Button’ on the Topmarks website. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
P.E. lessons will be on Tuesdays. You MUST wear your PE kit into school on this day. This half term our focus will be football.
Reading is very important at this age and we ask that you support your children in their reading by regularly listening to them read, and also by reading to them at home. It is tricky for us to listen to your children read in school at the moment but we will change your child’s book on a weekly basis for them to read at home. Can children bring their books into school only on a Wednesday to be changed.
If mums and dads have any concerns or worries feel free to contact the school office by email, and I will respond as soon as I can.
