Curriculum Information



This first half of Summer term in English we will be basing our work around plants as thins links to our Science topic. We will be starting with some explanation texts and will then write a descriptive story about how a plant grows. In Summer 2 we will be focusing our writing on our new topic of the Tudors. We will be writing persuasive letters and looking at some Shakespeare plays so we can create our own playscripts. We will also be writing a summary about ST George's day.




Over the term will be practising a variety of comprehension (VIPERS) skills including: inferencing and predicting and we will also be covering a number of vocabulary, grammar and punctuation objectives. Reading is such an important skill; it really unlocks all areas of the curriculum. We will be using: Stig of the dump, The Queen's Token and Macbeth - A Shakespeare story, to focus our reading skills.

Parent / Teacher Partnership


We are always open and happy to discuss your child's schooling. We are keen to ensure your child receives a 360 approach to their learning throughout their year with us. 


Therefore, we aim to keep communication open. Each day after school we are at the gate should you wish to catch us. You can email or phone the office with queries and questions, which we will endeavour to respond to quickly. And, as well as this we can offer face-to-face meetings or phone calls, which again, can be arranged by the office.
