Welcome back for the Summer Term!
I hope you have all had a lovely break and enjoyed the glorious sunshine.
Over the next few weeks, the Year 2s will be sitting their SATs. The children will
undertake these tests in test conditions but they should remember they are nothing
to worry about. They have all been working so hard up to this point and as long as
they try their best, what more can we ask!
In May, Miss Brown, our PGCE student will be joining us again and she will be with us until the
beginning of July. She is a keen dancer so is looking forward to teaching dance as well as other
exciting things while she is with us.
The last week of this half term will be our Arts Week – more information about this will be
distributed closer to the date.
Reading – We continue to develop our reading skills to not only understand words that we read
and those that are read to us but to develop a deeper understanding of the story as a whole. What
is implied? What might happen next? What do you think about the words the writer has used here?
How does it make you feel? Sharing books and having these discussions is such an important part of
becoming a great reader. These discussions can also be had with your child’s reading book too.
Even confident readers need regular practice with a book suited to their reading ability to hone
their skills. All of this helps to develop vocabulary, spelling, writing skills, imagination as well as a
deeper understanding of the world around them.
Maths – Addition and subtraction revision for Kingfishers this half term in Maths. We will be using
money too as well as exploring Shape. Our weekly “Tiny Tests” continue with some previous SATs
arithmetic paper questions thrown in as preparation. Early morning problem solving tasks between
8:45 and 9am also continue and weekly times tables practice too – 2, 5 & 10s for Yr2s and 3, 4 & 8s
for Yr3s. On a Thursday Mrs Goddard facilitates Maths Whizz for the class as their Maths lesson.
RE – Kingfishers will be pondering “Why do people pray?” on Thursdays with Mrs Goddard.
Physical Education – Our PE days are Wednesday & Thursday sometimes PE kits are required on
other days too. Therefore please ensure PE kits, including outdoor trainers, are in school all week.
As always, should you have anything you wish to discuss please email me:
