We are continuing our writing based on the book 'Wisp-a story of hope'.

For Pathways to Write, our book is 'Wisp-a story of hope'. This tells the story of someone who remembers their life in a war torn country before their land was devastated by fighting


What are we learning in Summer 1?

Maths will be taught in single age year groups, following the Maths No Problem scheme. 

Our history this half term will be based on the Victorians, our music will be continuing to learn Samba/carnival music and our PE will be learning more outdoor sports like cricket, tennis and football.

Home Reading

Our school aim is to complete at least 5 reading at home sessions each week. We will be monitoring reading at home closely by checking reading diaries each day and changing children’s books once a week, if required. We encourage children to develop their own sense of 'reading for pleasure' and would love to see the texts that children are also reading at home.


We will have two lessons of PE throughout the week,Outdoor Pe on a Wednesday and indoor PE on a Thursday. As per the PE uniform policy, children are to come dressed in their PE kit on both of those days.



Each Friday, we will complete a spelling test on the words taught that week.  Children will be taught these spellings during the week, with a focus on applying the rule that is being taught. Children are then expected to practise their spellings further at home using Spelling Shed, a new assignment will be posted on a Friday, along with a practise 'Look, Cover, Write' sheet. 


Online Learning Resources

Our children have access to a range of online resources to aid their learning. Here are the links to some useful websites that children can use whilst not in school, their usernames and passwords can be found in their School Planner.  All children are familiar with how to use these. Clicking on each name will take you to the website.
