During the summer term we will start by looking at measuring and capacity before moving on to counting to and from 20 and using counting on as an addition strategy. We will be learning about doubling and halving and Identifying odd and even numbers. 


  • Your child’s reading folder (containing their reading record and book) needs to be in their book bag every day. They will have their reading book changed once a week. 

  • In Early Years and KS1, we expect 3 signatures and one written comment per week in your child’s reading record. Please use the KS1 reading comprehension grid (found at the front of your reading record) to support your questioning during reading time. 

  • Weekly homework is uploaded onto Google Classroom on a Wednesday. It is due back the following Wednesday at 9am.

  • Library books are given out/to be returned every Thursday.

  • Please ensure that all items of your child’s uniform are clearly labelled with their name so that they can be easily found if they are lost. 

  • Water bottles should be brought into class with your child’s name on. 


Our topic in RE this half-term is ‘What are the special symbols and how do Muslims pray?’. We will be learning about the festival of Eid, the process of Ramadan and praying in a Mosque.


In PSHE we will be looking at the topic 'Relationships'. We will be discussing how to make friends and how to resolve friendship problems when they occur. We will think about how we show respect to others and know how to help themselves and others when they are upset or hurt.


The book that we are exploring in literacy is ‘The Night Pirates’. During this unit, we will be building on our knowledge of phase 3 sounds, writing in role of the main character and creating our own ‘How to be a Pirate’ guide.

The topic for our UTW lessons this term is ‘The World Around Us'. We will be observing patterns in the natural environment, talking about how to care for our world and focusing on minibeasts and exploring these in our Reception garden!
