We don't send reading books home over the summer holiday but instead encourage the children, with your support, to join in with Alsager Library’s 2022 Summer  Reading Challenge. The theme this year is ‘Gadgeteers’ and children are encouraged to discover the amazing science and innovation behind the world around us. You can follow the link below for some child-friendly information: 
Happy Reading!

Special request: Please could the children bring in a shoebox lid and an empty tea bag or cereal box (or similar) for a design and technology project on Friday 15th July.



There will be no homework or spellings this week.

In maths, we will be learning about: the place value of numbers to 100, measurement (length/height, weight/volume), position and direction, multiplication and division, fractions, money and time.

Our topics in science are ‘Living Things and Their Habitats’ and ‘Plants’. 

In computing, the children will learn how to use simple spreadsheets and how to send and open emails.

Art will be based on the human form and the children will continue to use a variety of mixed media to develop their skills. In design and technology, the children will make mechanical structures.

PE: Wednesdays – Dance – indoors; Thursdays – multi-skills/games both indoors and outdoors. Children need their named P.E. kit in school on these days. Earrings should be removed before school.

We hope you find this information useful and that it enables you to discuss with your child what they have been doing at school.
