Key information

In term 6, the  children will be taught by Mrs Jarman (PE) and Mrs Pullinger (Music) on Friday afternoons whilst I am out of class on PPA (Planning, preparation and assessment time). 

As we will be focusing on cricket this term, there will times when the lessons are held outside if the weather allows it. Therefore, please provide:
  • Tracksuit bottoms
  • Gloves/hat


Times tables will be tested every Tuesday and Thursday. Please make use of:
Home learning for this term will focus exclusively on practising times tables and regular reading at home.  We will also send an additional piece of home learning for the children to do in preparation for life at secondary school. Please make use of:
Home learning for Term 6 will be revised to reflect the changes in the 6+ timetable and to prepare the children for their transition to Year 7 secondary expectations. As the weeks progress, we will gradually increase the amount of home learning set and we would very much appreciate your support by encouraging the children to submit each piece of work set on time.


I will be teaching the class on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays until the end of this school year. Ms Cook will be teaching the class on Wednesdays.


This term's learning:

Our topic for term 6 continues to be 'How big is my world?' 

We will continue to develop our locational and place knowledge, focusing on identifying physical and human features of Crowborough and South America whilst also analysing land use, cultural vulnerabilities, environmental impact and economic trade.

We will also be doing a lot of work on refining our writing, with a huge push around punctuation and grammatical accuracy.

Of course, the production of 'Aladdin' will also be going up a gear, with regular rehearsals in preparation for the grand show itself in July. More details to follow about ticketing and dates!

For the time being, we are suspending the usual Home Learning. We would really like EVERYONE to focus on finding books that they love, getting lost in great stories, and sharing those fantastic stories with us all at school.
