Welcome back, Kangaroo Class! I hope you had a lovely Christmas. In each term, your child will be following exciting and engaging topics which are as follows:


Autumn term – Ancient Romans

Spring term – The History of Transport

Summer term – Modern Europe


Please see the curriculum web for information on the planned content of each subject for this term.



I will continue setting homework through Google Classroom. Please help your child to make sure homework is completed and handed in on time, we ask that it is handed in on the Thursday of the following week, so new activities can be given out on the Friday.

This homework will include reading (through Reading Planet), spelling, and maths. There will also be a termly topic homework which spans a few weeks.

Please do let me know if there are any issues with accessing the homework online.



As a school, we have made a pledge to read for at least 10 minutes every day.

Reading records will be checked daily. I do appreciate that some of you are very busy and your children attend lots of extra-curricular activities. Perhaps your child could read to you in the car, or while you are cooking.



PE is timetabled for Monday and Tuesday afternoons and, weather permitting, at least one of these sessions will take place outside. Please be reminded it is still winter and it has been very cold, so if possible please do send in kit such as sweatshirts and joggers to ensure your child is warm!


I hope that this answers any queries you may have. If you have any additional questions or concerns regarding your child’s learning, please do let me know. You can direct any emails to the office who will forward them on to me.
