Welcome back to the summer term.
This term we are exploring a project titled ‘Magnificent Monarchs’. In this project children will learn about the English and British monarchy from AD 871 to the present day. Using timelines, information about royal palaces, portraits and other historical sources, they will build up an understanding of the monarchs and then research six of the most significant sovereigns in British history.
In addition, we will be following the national curriculum requirements of English, Maths, Science, RHSE and R.E. In English, we will be looking at a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts and developing our understanding of spellings, punctuation and grammar. In Maths, we will be developing and applying the number system, securing numerical fluency and calculating. We will also be exploring fractions, measure, statistics and understanding geometry (properties of shape).
P.E. will take place on a Monday and Tuesday afternoon where we will continue to wear our P.E kit to school. The kit consist of a sky blue polo, royal blue Oaklands jumper, royal blue cotton shorts, socks and suitable sports trainers. For health and safety reasons earrings and watches should be removed for all P.E lessons and long hair must be tied up.

Reading books will be changed on a Monday and Tuesday and each pupil will take two books home depending on their level of reading ability. Please make sure children have their books available in school every day.
