Summer Term

We are really excited to be welcoming back the children after Easter, it's been really nice to hear how much they have enjoyed it and that they have returned safely. The term will be be filled with fun and great learning and we are really looking forward to seeing how the children flourish whilst being Kind, Safe and Ready!

We will start the term looking at our new class book, Fantastic Mr Fox. We will be learning about animals and how mischievous they can be! In maths we begin by looking at fractions and time so if you have the chance at home, please give your child the opportunity to practise telling the time. 

It's really important, and helps us in maths lessons, if the children develop quick recall of their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables. This not only prepares them for their multiplication check in Year 4, but will help us progress through maths lessons as a good pace and improve the children's confidence in lessons. 

If you want to support your child with their writing, please take a look at the Quick Writes document at the bottom of this page. It has 5 ideas you can do weekly to support their writing and also lists what they should be able to do at this point in the year.
