Summer Term

We are delighted to welcome the children back and are looking forward to a fantastic and fun-filled term together.

Our theme for the year is 'Explorers'

This term we will be Environment Explorers

. We will continue to learn about old Northwich and what has changed and also finding out about which inventions have helped us explore places further away.

This fits beautifully with our ‘Belonging’ unit of work in RE where we learn about the community and Christian worship, and our Geography work where we will explore the seven continents and practice our compass skills of North South East and West.


Our class text this half term is 'Toys in Space' by Mini Grey This text will inspire us to write our own fantasy story about toys that are taken onto a spaceship.  We will be focusing on joining words and phrases using 'and'; punctuating our sentences correctly with a capital letter and full stop, question mark or exclamation mark and we will be adding suffices to verbs eg -ed, -est, -er, -ing. We will also be looking at works with the prefix -un.





In Maths we will be completing lots of challenges with a focus on division and multiplication.


In History, we will be learning about Mary Anning.  Mary Anning who was an English fossil collector, dealer, and palaeontologist who became known around the world for finds she made in Jurassic marine fossil beds in the cliffs along the English Channel at Lyme Regis in the county of Dorset in Southwest England. 


As part of our Global Goals whole school project, we will be exploring the school grounds to see what animals, plants and birds we can find.  we will also be investigating the impact of plastic pollution on our environment and discuss ways that we can make changes.


We have lots of lovely creative tasks planned and there will be dedicated time for mindfulness, calming activities, sports and outdoor learning too.

Please note that PE for your child will be on a Wednesday and Friday this term so your child should come to school dressed in their PE kit.

We are looking forward to yet another fabulous half  term

 If you ever have any questions or concerns, then we are always here to help.
