Summer Term 2022
Our exciting new topic for the summer term is all about the life of William Shakespeare. Amongst other things, we will be finding out about the time period in which he lived and seeing how it compares to life in modern day London, seeing how children lived then in comparison to now, and of course looking at some of the plays for which he is famous, with a focus on Romeo and Juliet (with a little help from Gnomeo and Juliet!)

Spellings - Please note that due to a short Summer 1 term, the spellings for Summer 2 are running one week behind. This means on the second week of term the children will be given the Week 1 spellings (and tested on those on Week 3), on the third week they will be given the Week 2 spellings and so on.
Look at our wonderful tuktuks that we made as part of the Primary Engineering project! The children worked so hard on them and we are all very impressed with their finished products!
Children should have wellies and coats in school every day. Even when we do not have PE or Forest School we will be outside for the daily mile, break and lunchtimes on a daily basis as much as possible.
PE - Will be on Wednesdays (outdoors) and Fridays (indoors). Please ensure children have the correct PE kit.
FOREST SCHOOL - Will be on Mondays with Mrs Gorton and Mrs Petros. Please can children have correct forest school kit in school.
READING- Please read with your child as often as you can at home and record this in their reading diaries. Reads will be counted on a Thursday.
SPELLINGS- Will be set and tested on a Monday. Please support your child with learning their spellings at home and do check if you are unsure which spellings your child is learning.
TIMES TABLES- Will be tested on a Friday. We expect the children to recall their tables quickly so please can you support your child at home with practising these. The children are all at different stages but they should know which times table they are on.
Times Tables Rockstars is a really fun way to practise times tables, click on the link to take you to the website and contact one of us if your child does not know their login.
