Children will come to school dressed in their uniform and will bring their PE kit in a labelled bag.


Some PE sessions will take place outside unless there are extreme weather conditions i.e. ice, snow or heavy rain.


Please ensure they have the appropriate kit e.g. jogging bottoms/leggings and a jumper/hoodie.


Home learning menus are given out at the start of every half term highlighting activities and projects the children can complete based on their current topic.


Each half term, children will be encouraged to complete homework from a 'homework menu' from their class teacher. This will be a range of activities relating to their current topic that parents can complete with their children.


Please do share photographs of your children carrying out the tasks by sharing them with the year group's Twitter page.

Summer 2



This half term, we will be researching, designing, creating and selling bracelets and phone charms for the enterprise project. As entrepreneurs, the children will create a design brief for the products and conduct a range of market research. Next the children will sketch business logos taking inspiration from popular brands. We will then be marketing our products to the wider school community. Finally, we will sell our finished product during the enterprise fair and calculate our profit margin.

Books to enjoy at home!

Right under your feet, and all around you, is a secret world you've probably never noticed. Until now. Let's explore our Green Planet: a secret world of plants that might change how you see plants forever . . .
