Summer Term 2 – Why is the Islamic civilisation known as the golden age?
Our PE lessons this term is Wednesday we will be looking at fitness and mastering basic movements and looking to improve performance . Please ensure that your child has their kit in school – Black shorts, red/white T-shirt and black pumps – and that it is named. Our lesson on Wednesday will be outside so they will need a suitable jumper, tracksuit pants and trainers.
We will set weekly and termly homework throughout the year.
Each week the children will be expected to learn their spellings; practise and read at least 3 times with an adult. There will also be additional homework set as needed to support learning in the class.
Sats will take place between the 11th and 14th May. More information will be given in our Sats meeting later in the year.
We hope this information has been useful and if you have any questions, please talk to one of the team who will be happy to help.
