Lion Class finished reading 'Varjak Paw' by SF Said and we all loved it! We are looking forward to starting 'The Outlaw Varjak Paw', the second book in the series.  This week we are continuing to read 'Charlotte's Web' by E. B White.

This Week

The children enjoyed coming to school in their own clothes on Friday. Thank you for your donations for this.

Our Numeracy lessons for this week will be focussing on properties of shapes and general revision in preparation for their SATs.

Our Literacy is based on the book we are reading in class, which is 'Charlotte's Web'.


Please read with your child every night and discuss what has happened in the story. It is important that you sign your child's reading record book every night too. Thank you.

Homework will be given out weekly on Thursday or Friday and will consist of one piece of literacy and/or one piece of numeracy linked to the work we have been doing in class.  The children will also be given a list of spellings to learn for the week.

Completed homework should be returned by the following Friday to Hummingbird Class, or the following Monday to Lion Class.  We are very grateful for the support parents give in helping the children to complete their homework each week.  However, we would like to remind all parents that it is important for the children to complete the tasks themselves as far as possible.

Spellings should be practised two or three times over the week, ready for the spelling test in class at the end of each week.

    What would an alien find if it landed on our field?

Summer Term Topic

 This term the children will be finding out what an alien would find if it landed on our field!

In science we will be exploring living things that are found in different places. (eg. ponds, woods etc.). The children will learn about how living things grow and reproduce. We will investigate the basic conditions required for plants and animals to survive (food, water, air, warmth, light). 

In literacy we are reading and exploring the story 'Charlotte's Web' by E.B.White. The children will be making predictions and discussing the way characters develop across a story.


In DT we are continuing to create a field using an axle, to show movement.

The children will make a hand made puppet. They will use a running stitch, and join
textiles using glue, staples or tying.

Throughout their topic work, the children are encouraged to ask questions, brainstorm ideas and use a variety of resources to investigate, record and present their learning.
