Dear Parent/Carer, 

Welcome back to the start of summer term! I hope you had a wonderful Easter break. I am very much looking forward to another fun filled term with the children. 

Literacy: In literacy this term, we are using our class novel of ‘Street Child’ by Berlie Doherty to produce narrative writing. We will also be using this book to inspire some poetry. 

Maths: We will be focussing on area, perimeter and statistics using White Rose. We are also going to work on our problem solving skills by solving multi step problems. 

History: We are studying the topic ‘The Industrial Revolution’. Within this topic, we will be looking at the impact of the industrial revolution on Britain, the production of materials within the factories and the dangerous conditions that children faced at work.


Science: Our science topic this term is ‘Astronomy’. We will be looking carefully at The Big Bang and the expanding universe, gravity, our solar system, The Moon and our galactic neighbourhood. 

RE: Our big question this term is ‘What does it mean to be Jewish in Britain today?’. We will be focusing on the religion of Judaism this term. 

PSHE: Our focus for the term is Our World Online. We will be looking at how we can use the internet safely and positively. 

PE: Our lessons will be on a Tuesday and Friday this term. Please ensure that the children have a full pe kit, which includes either tracksuit bottoms or leggings for PE outside. We will be covering handball and lacrosse this term. 

Computing: We will be looking at 3D modelling this term as well as recapping how to stay safe online.  

Homework:  Your child has a homework book with a sheet stuck in. This sheet contains six spellings to learn for a test every Monday, 20 minutes of reading to complete and times tables to learn. The children can complete any spellings/times tables practice in these homework books. I have recently given your child a log in to EdShed. I am aiming to set weekly tasks and challenges on there to further their learning with SPAG and spellings. This is optional but of course, encouragement is always welcome.  


PE is on a Tuesday and Friday. The children must have a named PE kit in school at all times. PE is such a vital part of the curriculum and it is such a shame when the children have to miss out due to missing kit. 

Children should be reading at home on a daily basis. Your child has a reading record book and it would be greatly appreciated if you could hear them read aloud regularly. 

If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me. 

Yours faithfully,

Mrs Buchanan
