There are also so many fun ways that you can practise maths whilst you are at home as well. You could play times tables games, use measuring during cooking or help your parents with the shopping.




During Summer 2, we will be learning about the Anglo-Saxons and their invasion of Britain.



Our topic this half term is 'Finding our way through the moral maze'.



This half term we will be doing outdoor athletics. I wonder who can jump the highest, run the fastest and throw the furthest?





It is so important that you are practising your times tables on a regular basic. Every two weeks, we will be doing the TIMES TABLE CHALLENGE. If you get 20 or more in the challenge, you will move on to the next challenge!




Please support your child in listening to them read three times a week; encouraging them to learn their spellings; encouraging them to go on Mymaths and helping them with their weekly English or Maths homework.

Thank you for all your support. 


It is also so important that your child ENJOYS reading. Please encourage them to read something that they enjoy every day. This could be a novel, a newspaper or a leaflet - anything!
