You can find our more on our topic overview below.

Pentecost is celebrated on Sunday 31st May in 2020 and is known as the birthday of the Christian Church. In this topic, we focus on helping pupils to understand Pentecost and to celebrate the transforming power of the Holy Spirit.


 In this topic we look at the Ten Commandments given by God and consider the responsibility which is given to us by the freedoms we have in life.

Universal Church - Stewardship

In this topic we look at how we can be 'Stewards of creation' - looking after the Earth and all the people on our planet. We'll consider how we each can individually be stewards of God's creation.


Please encourage your child to go onto the following sites to support their learning: (Your child's log in information is inside their reading record) - Log in information has been sent home, please contact school if you need your details. 

The children will have times-tables tests 3 times a week and will have a short test at the end of each module that we’ll be learning.  The end of module tests indicate which children need a little bit more of a boost and invited to join a maths booster group.

During Summer term, the areas of maths that we would usually cover are:

  • Decimals

Please try to listen to your child read every day for 10 minutes. This should be followed by a discussion of the text. Please then update your child’s reading record book each time you hear them read including books they choose from home. You can record aspects they found difficult or if they particularly enjoyed it. Please ensure your child’s reading book and record are in school every day so we can hear your child read as often as possible.

We will be reading a range of different texts throughout the year, both through our topic work and also our story time and reading for pleasure opportunities. Ask your child what our current class book is!


Our creative curriculum topic is 'Marvellous Inventions' about the technological advancements during the Victorian age. Look at the topic overview for an idea of the things covered in this topic. We will focus initially on the works of Victorian era author, Charles Dickens- specifically 'Oliver'.


Below is the spelling overview for this term. Choose the ten spellings to learn each week and try to get an adult to test you!


Please read with your child every day for 10 minutes. Your child will be given a list of spellings to learn on a Monday and will be tested on them that Friday.  Please help your child to learn them.
