Reading Champions

  • Which part of the story do you like best?
  • What is happening in the pictures?
  • What happens first in the story?

Mad About Maths


Every Friday, we send home your child's Maths Passport along with activities for you to support them with at home. This will help them to develop important skills we are working on in class and nurture their love of the subject. 

We will also be sending home maths homework packs, which have a variety of games and activities for you to enjoy together at home. When your child has completed ten of these activities, they will recieve a Mad About Maths award. 

Our Project - Summer Term

     This term our project question is 'What Makes the World Beautiful?'. We will also be considering the question 'is the world always beautiful?' 

We will be exploring what we think makes the world beautiful and thinking about whether the world is always beautiful. To support us with this, we will be learning all about life under the sea. This will give us opportunity to think about some of the global issues we are facing, by looking at the impact of recycling on the worlds beauty.  

Our first book will be ‘The Rainbow Fish’. This book will be a wonderful starting point to help us to think about our project question. It will help us to think about what makes the world beautiful, as well as supporting us with important skills such as sharing with others and forming relationships. We will begin to consider some of the issues impacting on the beauty of our world.   

Our second book is ‘Captain Green and the Plastic Scene’. This book will help us to consider more deeply, how we can protect the worlds beauty and to explore the question ‘is the world always beautiful?’ We know the children will love the superhero element to this book!


Take a look at some of the books we will be using to support our project.


We will be using Talk 4 Writing strategies that will help the children to become familiar and secure with the books we read together in class. We will retell the stories using sensory stimuli, create story maps, innovate the stories and even retell the stories through Write Dance. We have lots of fun with Talk 4 Writing!


We will also be using a variety of factual books so support this project.
