Our topic for term 6 is Oh, I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside!

PE is on Mondays and Fridays - please make sure your child has their named PE kit in school at all times. Swimming will continue to take place on Fridays.

Please hear your child read as much as possible as it really does help.

Weekly homework will continue to be set in your child’s home learning book on Friday to be returned the following Wednesday. Please continue to support your child in Phonics. Mathletics tasks are set weekly if you would like to complete these and earn certificates. Thank you for your continued support.

The SEN provision map above shows the various interventions children may get in our class. Children's names have been removed to protect privacy.


For the first half of the term we will be exploring ‘on the water’ and will be using the Lighthouse Keeper series to support our writing. We will look at speech and character feelings in preparation for writing our own stories. For the second half we will delve deep into the Ocean and look at the book The Rainbow Fish, we will also explore other non-fiction texts to find out about sea creatures to make our own factual Top Trump cards.


This term we will be consolidating our learning from the year. We will focus on our number and place value knowledge so we can apply this in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will also revisit measurement and geometry.


We will learn to observe using simple equipment and undertake experiments involving sinking and floating and different seas creatures. There will be a visit to the school pond at the end of the term!


We will be thinking about the human features of seaside towns. We will be learning about seaside holidays 100 years ago and comparing them to the present day.


We will be using seaside materials collected by the children to make clay impressions and pebble paintings. In DT we will be making our own 3D treasure maps.


We will be learning about staying safe in the sun, medicines, keeping healthy and growing and changing – including our thoughts and feelings.


We will be learning about different lifestyles this term.


We will be revisiting basic computer skills and applying these to text and pictures of our own. We will also be looking at Online Safety.
