Home Learning and Important Information

Summer Term 1

We have started our brand-new topic for this half-term, Rainforest Explorers! We will be learning all about the rainforests of the world and the animals that live in them. As part of the Mantle of the Expert, we have become the expert team 'The Orangutan Rangers'. It is our job to convince people to build a safe reserve for the orangutans that have been impacted by deforestation. This week, we received some exciting news! We have been given permission to build our reserve in Borneo. We took a trip out to the rainforest and have been using adjectives to write a setting description.

Reading at Home

Thank you to everyone who has been reading at home. Please make sure you record this in your reading records at least 4 times each week, so you can be awarded certificates when you reach certain milestones! 



Our PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure that earrings are taken out, or that your child can remove them independently on these days and that hair is tied back. Please can you also make sure they have the full kit in school. This includes; black/dark jogging bottoms, a white t-shirt, black shorts, a green jumper and trainers. Thank you.


Home Learning will be sent out on Fridays and a picture of your work will need to be uploaded to Tapestry by the following Wednesday. We have also sent home new spelling books with words to practise each week. We will complete a spelling quiz each Wednesday in these books, so please make sure they are returned to school. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you for your continued support.
