Summer Term

One World

We will be learning all about the world around us, from materials, to recycling, to pollution and our local area. We will be finding out about how we can make our planet a better place for the future!


Welcome back to the Summer term….

Well hasn’t this been a strange old year so far? From thinking that everything was going to be relatively normal, we’ve then had another two lockdowns, and a school closure. Not quite the year I’d planned for you all! Still, we shall carry on, and hopefully this term will be the closest thing to normal we’ve had in a while. The weather is improving, the lighter evenings are coming, and we have lots of things to look forward to this term. As usual, I (Mrs Harland) will be teaching you Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Wednesday mornings. Mr Mellor, our associate teacher, will be working with us as well, and will be taking on teaching an increasing number of lessons. He has already met and worked with us for a short while before the holidays, and I know he is looking forward to getting started. Mrs Baldwin will continue to work with us in a morning, and then will be taking lessons on Wednesday afternoons.

So what’s in store...

We have lots of exciting learning planned, which will take place during our new topic One World. This topic will be lead by our English text, ‘The Paperbag Prince’, about an elderly man who lives in a landfill site. We will also be finding out about pollution, recycling and renewable energy through our Geography, Guided Reading and P4C lessons.

PE will continue to be on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons this term (outdoors weather permitting/where ever possible)—so please make sure that you have the correct school PE kit in school. Trainers are only necessary for PE lessons/break times if needed, all other times, school shoes should be worn please.

Correct uniform should be worn at all times please. This is a school jumper/cardigan, or one in a similar colour,  a white polo neck top, grey skirt, shorts or trousers and black shoes. For PE, this is a white top, white or black shorts and trainers or pumps. Jogging bottoms or leggings can be brought in for colder weather, but please try to make sure they are black or white.

Learning Log homework and Maths will continue to be given out on a Friday and should be returned on a Wednesday. Spellings will be given out in the first week back, and should be practised regularly.

As always, reading is the cornerstone of all learning. We recommend reading a wide range of texts both at home and at school, this includes your child’s school reading book and their own personal reading books. Please continue to listen to your child read and sign their reading records at least 3 times a week. By Year 5, we expect the children to also record any home reading they do themselves in their reading record, however it would be great if you could sign it to confirm they have read.

Please ensure all uniform is named, and that water bottles are taken home and cleaned daily.


We look forward to seeing you all soon, any questions please ask.


Mrs Harland, Mrs Baldwin and Mr Mellor.
