Term 5 2018

Welcome back!  

This term our topic is based on the famous ship, The Titanic. If you have any resources that you wouldn’t mind lending to us, please pop in and speak to one of the members of the KS1 team. For more information on what else we are learning about, please see the attached topic web.


Our Building Learning Power theme this term is ‘Resilience’. We will be thinking about how we can be more resilient at home and in school.

Year 2 SATs

The Y2 children will be taking part in their Statutory Assessment Tests (SATs) in May. If you missed the information meeting back in February, please come in and chat with us if you have any questions.

Home Learning

Home learning will begin the first week back Monday 16th April.

We encourage children to read daily at home. This can be your child’s school book, an e book from Bug club or a book from home! Every time your child reads at home please make a note of it in their Reading Record book. If it isn’t noted in the Reading Record book that your child has read their school book to an adult, we can not change it. This will mean that your child will have to wait until their next allocated day to change their reading book, a changing book day timetable can be found in the classroom and on the door.

Below is the timetable for home learning:

  • Monday – Reading
  • Tuesday –Reading
  • Wednesday – Reading and handwriting (handwriting is due in on the Friday)
  • Thursday – Reading
  • Friday – Words to Learn (due in on the following Wednesday) and Brain Busters ( due in on the following Monday. Please allow only 7 minutes for Brain busters)


PE will start the first week back Monday 16th April.


If you have any questions regarding your child’s learning, please pop in and speak to one of us. Please also make sure you read the termly letter attached.
