Welcome back for the Summer Term 2021.
We hope you’ve all had a lovely Easter break and were able to meet up with some friends and family, even if in a restricted way.
We have adapted our plan for the summer term, taking into consideration the needs of the children after the lockdown last term. Please see our intended curriculum coverage jigsaw below.
Our PE sessions will continue to be on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. Please could children come to school in PE kit on these days, with a jumper just in case of chilly weather.
Children will have reading books in school and can continue to access the Bug Club reading books online from home. Obviously, we are quite happy for them to be reading their own books and magazines at home if you prefer.
We will begin setting spellings from 13th April and homework from 19th April using Google Classroom, to avoid paper going to and from school/home. Please let us know if you would prefer a paper copy.
Year 3 children are expected to know their 4x and 8x tables by the end of the year.
Year 4 children are expected to know all of the multiplication tables to 12x12 by the end of the year.
Please support your child through practising at home for 5 minutes each day.
Let’s hope for a summer term of good health, good weather and excellent learning!
