Summer Term 2019

This term, we have lots of exciting activities based on our new topics ‘The Rainforest’ and ‘The Romans’. ‘The Romans’ is a fantastic history topic where the children will have lots of opportunities to be creative and learn all about how people lived during this time. After half term, we will have a Roman day where the children will be invited to dress up (we will send more information about this closer to the time).

In Science, we will be learning all about ‘What Plants Need’ and ‘Magnets’.

A variety of genres will be covered this term in English. These include: information texts and play scripts.

As a reminder, our P.E sessions are on Wednesdays; please ensure that your child has full P.E kit in school at all times as there may be weeks that this differs.

If you have questions concerning any of the above, or wish to meet with us regarding your child, please make an appointment at the office.
