Class Teacher: Mrs Sherwood

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Hogarth

Summer Term 2

Topic: Wriggle and Crawl

Our Topic for Summer 2 is Wriggle and Crawl. Grab your coat and pooter – we’re going out and about on a mini beast hunt!! Sweep your nets in puddles and bonds and lift up logs to see who’s home.! Then set up your own mini beast laboratory and observe their every move. Add notes and labels and ask our own research questions – just like a real entomologist!! Learn about bees, worms and butterflies too. Can you make a food chain to show who eats who? Carry out investigations to find out more, like how far a snail travels in a day and how a spider catches its prey.! Then animate to show how your favourite bug transforms from one form to another, perhaps a caterpillar to a butterfly or a maggot to a fly…! urgh!! On your belly, legs at the ready, it’s time to wriggle and crawl!


Physical Education

Please bring your child’s P.E. kit in at the beginning of each half term and leave it in school. Warm kits will be needed too and suitable outdoor shoes.

Our PE kit is a white t-shirt, black shorts and black plimsolls.



Listening to stories with your child and regular support with their reading book is very important, thank you for your continued support. The children will also be given homework on a homework grid every half term, which is to be returned to school as each piece of homework is completed. They will also recieve weekly spellings. Spelling tests will take place on a Wednesday.

If you have any questions, then please don’t hesitate to ask.


Thank you for your support.
