Outdoor PE - Monday (white t-shirt, plain black or grey joggers and top, trainers).

Please come to school in your kit on PE days. If it is cold, wear joggers on Friday as well.

Please do not wear earrings for PE.



Please make sure you read your child's school reading book with them as often as possible. Reading is a 'building block' on which much of their other learning rests, and regular reading at home makes a huge difference in the classroom. 


Reading Leader Board

Whenever your child reads at home, they will receive a sticker on the Reading Leader Board. Stickers mean prizes. KEEP READING!


Children may receive home learning work. These activities are for you and your child to practise at home to support their learning. They do not need to be returned to school. 



In the summer term, our topic will be 'Seasides.' We will be learning about the features of the seaside and how they are different from or similar to where we live. We will also look at seaside visits in the past and how they are different from seaside visits now. We will learn about Grace Darling, who was famous for helping to rescue people from a sinking ship.


In science, our focus will be in plants. We will name some basic parts of plants, including trees, and we will plant seeds and observe what happens when they grow.


We will read a variety of stories set on or near the coast, and we will use them as a stimulus for writing. We will continue with the Floppy's Phonics scheme, learning new pieces of code, including alternative spellings for the same sounds.


In art, we will be painting coastal scenes in the style of Maud Lewis.
