Term 5 Letter to Parents


Dear Red Class Parents,

The Red Class team hope that you have all managed to enjoy the fabulous weather over Easter.

We have an exciting term coming up. On Saturday May 11th, Miss Hyam will become Mrs Denmark! We are all really excited to hear all about her big day and hopefully enjoy lots of pictures!


We will also be taking our SATs papers throughout May and expect the children to do really well. Please don't let your children worry about these as they are very informal - but good breakfasts and plenty of sleep every night will certainly help them to their best!

It is also Eco week on the last week of term. We will be doing lots and lots of outdoor activities so please make sure that your children are dressed for whatever the weather has in store for us.







We will be linking our Literacy to our topic of The Great Fire of London. We will be writing:



-interview scripts

- chronological reports




Our topic for the next term is animals, including humans.

We will be learning about a range of life cycles, which will include watching real caterpillars become butterflies.



We will be making a range of art to support Mayday and our topic.



Our new topic is "The Great Fire of London". We will be looking at:

-comparing modern life with Tudor life.

- documenting key events

- understanding the spread of the fire

- understanding how to research events of the past.



The children will be developing their skills in Gymnastics with Miss Baratt and hockey with Miss Roots. Please ensure P.E. kits are in school every Tuesday and Wednesday. Please remember that children are no longer permitted to wear tape over their earrings. If your child cannot remove them independently, please make sure they have been removed at home.



This term in computing we will be coding. The children will be exploring a new programme (Purple Mash). 



Miss Hyam will be teaching music every Wednesday – We will be composing this term.



Our topic for the term is key beliefs in Judaism.




If you have any queries then please don’t hesitate to come and see us.


Mrs Terry, Mrs Hurst, Miss Killack and Miss Hyam (soon-to-be Mrs Denmark!)

Red Class Reading Raffle

In Red class we have introduced a strategy to encourage reading at home. If a child is heard read by an adult (parent, grandparent, childminder etc.) and it is recorded/signed in their reading record at least 4 times a week the child will receive a raffle ticket. This raffle will be drawn on a Friday at random and the winner of the draw will get to select a prize from a lucky dip bag.

Thank you, 

Red Class Team
