Summer Term 2

  • Geography: Local Study, Field Work 
  • Science: Electircity

  • 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!
