REQM Silver Award


For the first half-term, we will be learning about the Romans and then we will be moving on to look at tourism in Spain. Any books, artefacts or general information that the children can share and use in school to support their work, would be greatly appreciated and shared.

Other subjects:

Details of what the children will be learning about in other curriculum areas can be found on the school website.


PE this half-term is on Monday afternoon. Please make sure your children have their full PE kit in school. This should comprise of green shorts, white t-shirt and trainers with a spare pair of socks. In cooler weather, children may wear green or black jogging bottoms and a school sweatshirt or cardigan. Please include a plastic bag so muddy trainers can be taken home for cleaning if necessary. If your child wears earrings they will need to be able to take them out on their own. Children who are not able to do this or do not have their PE kit, will not be able to take part in PE. However a call will be made in advance of the lesson, so the PE kit could be brought into school.



Reading and homework diary

Children will be coming home with a reading book and homework diary shortly. To ensure progress in reading, your child will need to read five times at home each week, either supported or independently dependant on confidence.

To qualify for a merit, five adult initialled entries including the title and author of a book plus any other comments must be completed. These are checked every Monday.


Weekly spellings will be given out every Friday, some of which will be accompanied by two activity sheets. These are to be completed at home to support and consolidate learning. Some children will be tested weekly and others every four weeks to see if spellings have been committed to long term memory.


Art and DT:

In order to keep your child’s uniform clean, could you please provide an old t-shirt or shirt which is clearly named – thank you.

Lunch and Snacks:

May I remind you that children are only allowed to eat a piece of fruit or vegetables during morning break. Lunchboxes must not contain any chocolate or sweets. Children can choose between a plain cake or a packet of crisps (preferably low in salt and fat) to accompany their healthy lunch.
