Our Summer term Power Maths units are focused on: Geometry (Property of shapes, Position and Direction), Decimals, Measure, Negative Numbers and Volume. 

We also use Century and ActiveLearnPrimary to enhance our learning in Maths. Please make sure that you log on to access some of the exciting games related to our maths units. 


Our P.E. days will be on Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning. Children are asked to come dressed in their P.E. kits on those days.


Through our first Summer term, we will be learning about The Tudors.



We will be exploring our unit "Living Things and their Habitats". This will encourage us to think scientifically by exploring different life cycles of animals, as well as the reproduction cycle of a plant. 

Art & Design

We will be enjoying lots of different Art and  D&T this term, such as still life drawings. We also have some exciting opportunities for Art and D&T projects this term involving the local community.  


In French this term, we will be learning how to describe the planets and the solar system. Our trusty alien friend will be helping us along the way.  Children will learn how to use sentences both verbally and written. 

At home

Times Table Rockstars

Please keep practising your times tables at home to maintain fluency in them! :)


We will be using Showbie as a way to share resources and communicate. You can use this area to upload any homework you have completed for this term. Usernames and logins are the same as last year. Our class Showbie code is: 8CCFG

Water Bottles

All children have been given a school water bottle. This needs to be brought to school each day having been washed and re filled with fresh water from home. Children will be reminded at the end of the day to bring home their lunch bag and water bottle to be washed ready for the next day. We have turned off our water filter system so children will not be able to fill up their water bottle in the usual way. All classes have access to drinking water throughout the day should the children require extra water.


Please ensure your child brings a coat to school each day, as this allows the children their outdoor breaks whatever the weather. Please ensure all coats are clearly named. Please also ensure your child has a pair of outdoor shoes as our play area is on the school field. We will be using the field as much as possible.

Rhino  Beaver  Tortoise  Ant 

In this class, we use all of our learning muscles in different ways. We work together as ants, showing one another a new strategy for learning or supporting each other. We are resilient rhinos - never giving up and making sure that we have put the most effort we can into an activity. We are resourceful beavers - using resources in and around the classroom to scaffold our learning and support us in lessons. We are reflective tortoises - we look back on achievements and accomplishments.

What went well? What did I learn? What do I need to improve on? How can I be even better than what I am already?
