On PE days, children are asked to wear their school PE kit which includes a plain red t-shirt with or without the school logo, a plain black sports jacket/zip-up jacket and plain black or navy joggers/shorts.

Summer Term 2

This half-term we will be covering:

  • Geography: Local Study, Field Work 
  • Science: Electircity
  • DT: Electrical systems

  • RE: Why do some people think that life is a jounrey and what significant experiences mark this?
  • PSCHE: Being Safe
  • Spanish: Consolidation of our units including clothes and time
  • PE: Swimming, Sports Day, Forest School
  • Computing: Programming (repetition in games)

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

  • My Maths
  • TT Rockstars Battle


Alongside the online activity will be the following:

  • Reading (3 times to an adult signed in their school diary for a merit)
  • Spellings (see below)
  • Learning and practising times tables

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 to learn by the following week. One way of learning their spellings can be by using their Spelling Shed account.


Most of the lists, aside from when we cover the Year 3 and 4 Statutory words lists, have an extra 'Super Speller' challenge for the children to think of their own three words that follow the same rule given to learn. If the children can spell the extra words correctly in their spelling test they can gain a merit!


Spelling lists to be tested on:

  • Friday 7th July - Prefix auto-, anti-, super-
  • Friday 14th July - Prefix bi- (last list of Year 4)
