Summer 1

The theme for Summer 1 is 'How Does Your Garden Grow?'.

Children will be reading a variety of text over the term:

  • A non-fiction book about the Life Cycle of a Chicken
  • The Tiny Seed
  • Jack and the Beanstalk
  • Oliver's Vegetables

Summer 2

The theme for Summer 2 is 'Are We Nearly There Yet?'.

Children will be reading a variety of text over the term:

  • You Can't take an Elephant on a Bus
  • The Train Ride
  • Mr Grumpy's Outing
  • Whatever Next
  • All Aboard the Bobo Road
  • The Everywhere Bear

This term, children will be introduced to new books that will support their comprehension and writing. The children will learn key facts as they engage with different fiction and non-fiction books to develop an understanding around growing. The children made fantastic progress in their writing in Spring. This term, the children will consolidate their writing skills when writing 'Super Sentences'. 

Children will continue to access Speech and Language interventions to promote the different areas of communication and language skills. 


We will continue to deliver Maths using White Rose Maths. This term, the children will be building numbers beyond 10, compose and decompose shapes to deepen their understanding around 2D and 3D shapes. The children will explore sharing and grouping to identify patterns of odd and even numbers and doubles. We will use our knowledge of repeating patterns to create simple maps.


We will continue to deliver 45 minutes Read Write Inc phonics sessions in small groups. The children will access guided reading intervention in small groups to further promote letter recognition, blending and segmenting skills alongside comprehension, inferences and expressions. 

Reading at Home

The requirement is that you read with your child 5 times a week. Your child will also read 1:1 with an adult once a week. This is when their reading book will be changed should it need to be. Please sign and write a comment in the reading record, so we are aware you have read with your child and if any additional support is needed. 

Homework and Online Learning Journal

Your child's learning journey will be on Seesaw. Please check Seesaw daily for updates and tasks set. Soon we will be setting weekly homework challenges for you to complete with your child at home. Please send in your responses through Seesaw for us to celebrate in class.


PE will continue to take place every Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure that your child brings in a full PE kit with their name clearly labelled to get changed into at school. 

PE kit consists of a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and black PE pumps. Children may wear black jogging pants and a jumper in the colder months. 

Water bottles, snacks and spare clothes

Your child can bring in a water bottle with WATER ONLY. This can be accessed by your child throughout the course of the day to ensure they stay hydrated.

Snacks are also permitted for snack time. However, as we are a healthy school these must be healthy snacks e.g. fruit, bread sticks or crackers. Children are also offered a piece of fruit every day. 

Please provide your child with spare clothes clearly labelled that can stay on their peg in case of any accidents.
