Dear Parents and Carers,


Welcome back for the Summer term.

History will be taught in the second part of the Summer term and the topic will be  ‘Medieval Britain - The Normans and the Hundred Year War. 



In English we are going to be revisiting poetry. We will focus on rhyming words and poems. We will be returning to Highate Woods to see what difference the change in seasons has made to what we can see, hear and feel.

We will practise our reading and spelling skills and will continue to improve our phonetic skills by moving on to Set 3 Sounds.

We will do some practical tasks to help understand about day and night. We will also begin to understand the phases of the moon. Plants will be studied next half term.



Our focus this term is asking Why are Some Stories Special? We will think about stories from the major world religions and think about why it is special to us. We will also think about how the messages in what we read help us to become better individuals.



The theme is Data Handling: International Space Station. We will learn how computers are used in, and around Earth and learn how to give computer instructions.
