Summer Term Information

Dear Parents,

I hope you have all had a good Easter.

This term our topic will be ‘The World Around Us’ and we will be looking at plants and trees for science within the topic. We will be looking at Winsford now and then and in geography we will be looking at maps and man made and natural objects on the maps.

In English our fiction stories will be ‘Hansel and Gretel and ‘Molly’s Jolly Brolly’.

Maths we are starting by looking at Length & Height, Volume & Capacity, Weight & Mass- compare & begin to measure. Money- identifying coins and notes as well as adding and subtracting money. Place Value- counting within 100 and comparing amounts. Consolidating our addition & Subtraction knowledge. Multiplication & Division- Grouping & Sharing. Using arrays. Finally looking at fractions- Whole, half, quarter & three-quarters

In RE the children will learn about the Christian Church and different symbols as well as looking at the Qur’an.

In PSHCE the children will be looking at understanding that there are rules and laws and consequences to your actions. Also how to work and play effectively with other and friendship.

PE will be on Mondays and Tuesdays. Please send your child in in their school uniform. We recommend brining in your child’s PE kit on a Monday and taking it home on a Friday so if they need it at any point in the week extra it is already at school. Please make sure that all PE kit is named.

Homework will be sent home on a Monday and needs to be returned, completed to a good standard, on the Friday of the same week. Homework will consist of either an English or Maths piece plus some spellings that must be learnt each week ready for a spelling test on Friday. Please do support your child with their homework, especially their spellings, as this will help their learning enormously (but please don’t do it for them!).

Please also regularly read with your child at home. Your child will be given a reading record for you to write in when you have read with your child, plus a book from school (please keep this safe and return to school), but feel free to read other books from home or the library in Winsford as well. If you have any problems or concerns with reading with your child then please do let us know.

Each day your child needs to bring in:

  • Their book bag
  • Reading record and book
  • Water bottle

We hope that this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to come and speak to us if you need any more information or have any questions.

Many thanks,

Miss Griffin and Miss Brittleton
