PE Days

During Summer1,, our PE days are Monday afternoon (Hockey) and Tuesday afternoon (Cricket). We are very lucky to be working with outsider providers/coaches for these sessions. Children are able to wear their PE kits to school on their PE days, therefore please make sure your child has a school PE kit to wear on Monday and Tuesday each week. This does need to be our school PE kit, not clothes with logos on etc.

Summer 1

This half-term we will be covering:

History: Anglo-Saxons and Vikings 

Science: Sound

RE: What can we learn from religion about deciding what is right and wrong? 


DT: Bread making, food hygiene 

PE: Hockey, Cricket 

Computing: Coding

Spanish: Clothing 

Each Friday one of the following activities will be set online:

  • My Maths
  • TT Rockstars


Each activity will be set for the children to complete by the following Friday. Alongside, these activities we ask that the children read to an adult 3 times each week and have their planners signed to be awarded a merit.

Spelling lists of 10 spellings, following a set rule, will be given out each week and the children will stick them in their school diaries/planners to learn by the following week. One way of learning their spellings can be using their Spelling Shed account. However, if you ever miss when they are placed in the diaries, please see the attached documents below.


Remember getting 10/10 in your spelling test will earn you 1 merit, plus if you can learn 3 extra spellings that follow the same spelling rule, you can gain an extra merit!


We will be testing the following rule on:

Friday 23rd April - Year 3/4 Statutory word list 8
