Welcome to the Summer Term! 

This Term is great! 


We are reading some great texts and learning all about our Solar System and the Anglo Saxons and Vikings who invaded Britain's shores 1400 years ago when the Romans left Britain. We are going to see the Anglo Saxon burial treasure from Sutton Hoo at the British Museum, to bring this even more to life. 


Our current text for literacy is CURIOSITY, ...which is about the Mars rover sent to bring back samples from all over our neighbouring planet. In Destination Reader we are finishing off the Polar Bear Explorer's Club, which is an exciting adventure. We will be creating Anglo Saxon clay pots in Art and in Maths we are working hard to cement our understanding of fractions and moving on to percentages .


PE  is on Tuesdays. We are focussing on fitness and circuits. 

Please send your child to school in PE Kit. PE kit is plain black or navy blue tracksuit / shorts. The t-shirt can be white, black or purple but must also be plain. Trainers can be any colour.

Maths Homework

Your CLIC packs are linked to your current targets in maths. Once you achieve full marks in class, you will be promoted to the next level and the next CLIC pack.


We all need to practice our quick recall of multiples. Log on to Times Table Rockstars to become the ultimate champion!


Writing Homework

We will be practicing our spellings in class and will have a spelling test every Friday. If you would also like to practice at home, the spellings are listed below.


There are also some optional extra activities linked to your writing targets.

Continue to read at home. We no longer need to record this in a journal - our main aim for you is to enjoy the books you are reading!


Remember we have a fantastic new reading corner ready with brand new books for you to check out and enjoy!
