We will be using this page to keep you up to date with your child's learning.

We plan to include information about what we will be learning, things you can do to support your child at home and any special events or activities that your child will be participating in.


Summer Term 2019


Summer 1 - This half term our topic is In The Desert


In science our topic will be Light and shadow. We will be investigating:

  • Why we need light in order to see
  • The sun as a light source
  • How shadows are formed
  • How shadows change throughout the day
  • How light is reflected


In RE, we will be exploring Christianity.  


In PE, the children will be taking part in Real PE (gymnastics) and athletics. 

PE takes place on a Tuesday and Thursday so please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school on these days. 


The English text this half term is The Three Little Javelinas by Susan Lowell. 


We will be writing our own innovated stories based on this fairy tale. 


In Maths our topics are Fractions and Time.

The children will be learning to tell the time to the nearest minute on an analogue clock. It would be helpful to give your child lots of opportunities to practice this important skill at home. 


Our focus continues to be on the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. Children should be confident in their 2, 5 and 10 times table.
