We love to learn and have fun along the way.


We hope that you have had a relaxing Easter break and are ready for our new term and what it brings!


Our Summer Term Topic is called ....

Who's the king of the castle?

We will be focussing on History and looking at what life was like in a castle, with a geography link to where castles were built and why.

In English our focus will be the key skills needed in Year 1 and 2 - these will include handwriting, spellings of everyday words and using capital letters and full stops in the correct place.  We will also be developing our stamina for writing when completing longer writing tasks and also looking at some non-fiction texts.

We will be looking at a great range of books and especially at Traditional Tales.
