The first half of the summer term is quite short but with lots to squeeze into our new theme of Darwin.
Please see our school website HERE for the curriculum overview.
Just a few reminders… All classes’ library days continue to be Tuesdays.
Please ensure that children have their P.E. kit at school throughout the week and don’t forget to name any new items and check that existing items are still clearly labelled. It may also be worth checking that plimsolls fit!
Hopefully the warmer weather will come back soon and with this in mind can we please ask that all sun hats and other items of summer clothing (including jumpers and cardigans) are named. Throughout the summer a named water bottle is invaluable as the children are encouraged to drink plenty and refill them through the day if necessary. Thank you
The end of Key Stage One Tests and Assessments will take place during May. During this half term, the children will be working very hard so every day will be important to them. Please try to ensure your child is in school during this time.
Homework Thank you so much for all of the support you give your children when helping with homework tasks set. It is noticeable that children who regularly carry out homework tasks are transferring their knowledge to their class work. We will continue to set homework as before on a Friday ideally to be completed for the following Friday. This half term we will be giving the children a spelling test each Friday asking them to revise all the spellings learned so far.
Keep reading with your child as much as possible whether it be a comic, information book, story book or annual. Don’t forget to choose an extra book on a Wednesday morning before school from the lighthouse room if wished.
We will soon be practising for our Year Two end of year performance of ‘Super Kids’. This will be a whole year performance and will be performed on 11th and 12th of July.
Here’s to a fun filled and eventful rest of the term!
Best Wishes from,
Mrs Summers, Mrs Pinhorne, Mrs Cryer and Mrs Curthoys
