Summer Term ...    

The first half of the Summer Term has really zoomed-by! 

We started the term with a brilliant residential visit to The Bendrigg Trust Outdoor Centre in Cumbria. We can't tell you all enough how proud we are of the children! They all rose to each and every challenge and were an absolute credit to their families and the school.

We have  been enjoying learning about “Trains and Railways”.

At the start of our theme-work we made a mind-map (we used a computer programme called "Clicker 7"). A mind map helps us to clearly think about the information that we know and also the things we would like to learn about. You can see the mind-map by clicking on "Files to download" below. We have learnt some new vocabulary so far and know about coal, fireboxes, deisel, petrol, electricity, steam and pistons.

In English we have been sharing texts that relate to our new theme. We have been sharing the "Oi Get Off my Train" story and train and railway non-fiction texts. There are some train videos on this page.


In Maths we are continuing to work hard on our individual targets and are also developing our skills in addition, subtraction and estimation. We are extending our knowledge of 2D and 3D shapes and their properties and have also been working with shape and number patterns. Our number writing continues to improve.


Learning outside the classroom continues and we we've been building on our skills in teamwork and problem-solving. 

We’ve been working with Sue Mann in Music sessions and have been enjoying different musical styles – Country, Reggae and Trance are our favourites!

The process of transition into high-school has begun. We are all enjoying visits to our new schools and are discussing our thoughts and feelings about coping with new experiences. 

Thank you for your continued support and see you soon!
