Termly Learning Focus


7th June 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,                                                     


The year has flown by and I can hardly believe we are entering the final term. Last term we reading the books of Colin West and Oliver Jeffers, looking at the rhyme, humour and interesting word choices in their writing. We continued working hard in Phonics; Mrs Coleman and Miss Beavis are thrilled to see how our writing is developing.  In Maths, we mastered at numbers to 50 and began to work to 100 for partitioning and sequencing. We explored fractions and had fun using pancakes (which of course we had to eat!!)  We also completed a history topic, re visiting some of our lockdown learning about Queen Victoria and learning this time about her husband’s interest in new technology of the time, we completed paintings inspired by Henri Rousseau and explored plants in science.


When we return in Term 6, we will be learning many new things: In Literacy we will explore creative writing. Our class readers continue with Colin West, followed by Roald Dahl. In Maths we will be working hard at embedding our understanding of number, addition, subtraction, partitioning numbers and using the whole part model using numbers for numbers to 100.


Across the rest of the curriculum, we are growing our learning in:




Design Technology




Animals including Humans

Geography – mapping and the UK

Making Pop Up Cards

E Safety

Finding the pulse, singing accurately and playing recorders

Agility, Balance and Co ordination


How can you help with your child’s learning in school and at home?

  • Daily reading at home remains an important part of your child’s learning and is essential if your child is to progress across the curriculum. Reading journals must be in school every day so adults can use them to record when they read with the children. Children are required to complete the child’s comments section.
  • Homework engagement will be checked every Friday by an adult in their class. Homework this term will continue to just be Spelling Shed (3 visits per week) Reading 3X a week and Numbots
  • P.E will take place on a Thursday Afternoon this term for both classes. Children are required to come into school in their PE kit including additional layers and a waterproof jacket/coat. Children with long hair will be expected to tie it up for PE due to health and safety reasons and children with earrings should ensure that they are removed on PE days.
