Welcome to Kangaroo Class. I hope you had a lovely Easter holiday and are ready for another term of learning!


In each term, your child will be following exciting and engaging topics which are as follows:


Autumn term – Stone Age to Iron Age Britain

Spring term – Mountains, Volcanoes and Earthquakes

Summer term – Ancient Egypt


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


Summer weather

As you will have noticed, it is starting to get warmer. Please make sure your child brings a named water bottle, sun hat, and sun cream in school each day.



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.



Many children can fluently read texts, but do not always understand what they have read. Even if they are fluent, it is still important that you read with them. It would also be helpful for you to discuss with them what has been read. You may wish to ask them to:

§ Summarise what they have already read.

§ Predict what will happen next.

§ Define or link key vocabulary.

§ Relate the story to their own experience.

§ Infer how they think the characters are thinking or feeling.

Please do write in your child’s reading record so that I can see their progress and know about any difficulties or successes!


Uniform and kit

Please could you ensure that your child’s uniform is all appropriately named, even if you simply write their initials on the label this will allow us to reunite them with their rightful owners!


As usual, we do PE on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons which may take place in- or outdoors. Please continue to send your child in with a full PE kit.


As usual, if you have any additional questions or concerns regarding your child, please do let me know. You can direct any emails to the office who will forward them on to me.


Kind regards,


Miss Taylor
