Our Learning

See what we are learning about this term by reading our termly newsletter.


The children will continue to have one indoor and one outdoor PE session each week. 1RV will have PE on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and 1RW will have it on Mondays and Thursdays.

Your child will need navy shorts, a white, round neck t-shirt and trainers or plimsolls. Plain navy tracksuit bottoms are required for outdoor PE. Shorts must be plain and above the knee (no buckles or zips). No items of denim or vests are allowed.

We recommend PE kits are brought in to school and kept in school for the half term.

Home Learning

Thank you for your support with the children’s home learning so far, it really makes a difference!

There are lots of different ways you could support your child in their learning at home.  Here are just a few ways;

Reading: please continue to support your child to read daily Please fill in the reading journal with the name of the book and the number of pages read, and sign it. We would also appreciate it if you could write a brief comment to indicate how your child approached the text and responded to your questions and prompts. The summer reading journals contain many activities that link to our learning in class, the stories we read and the author Mick Inkpen who we focus on. We ask that your child completes one of these activities per week.

Writing: letter and numeral formation activities will be sent home each week.

Maths: maths homework will be set on a weekly basis via Mathletics. Children can log onto Mathletics here.

Encourage your child to have a go at the Maths challenge that is published in the Eliot Bank weekly and here.

Take-Away Tasks

Please click here to access some Take Away Tasks for your child to work on at home. The activities are all related to this term's topic. Children can bring them back in to school to share with their teacher and their class mates.
