Welcome back to the Summer Term!


This half term, our topic is ‘Amazing Animals’ in which the children will learn about different animals and minibeasts.  We will look at different groups of animals each week including pets, minibeasts, ocean creatures, farm animals, minibeasts and dinosaurs.  We will talk about the countries/climates that the animals live in and their appearance, habitat, diet and lifecycle, thinking about their similarities and differences. 


Other Key Information:


The children will continue to need a PE kit each week for their PE lessons.  They will need a white t-shirt, navy shorts or jogging bottoms and a pair of plimsolls all in a clearly named bag.  Please ensure that this is kept in school on their peg for the half term. 


Please continue to try to read with your child every day and practice reading and spelling their rocket words.  Your child needs to bring in their reading folder to school everyday so that they can read with their teacher.  


Discussions with your child’s teacher

We operate an open-door policy and are always available for a quick chat at the beginning and end of the day.  If you would like a longer appointment, then please email us with any questions or queries and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Our email address is:


Thank you in advance for all of your support, and we look forward to another great half term with the children.
