Welcome back - Summer 2 2023


In KS2..........

We have, as ever, a busy term ahead of us. Last term we finished our river topic by looking at the River Nile. This term we will pick this link up and discover how the Nile enabled the Ancient Egyptian civilisation to flourish. In science we will be looking at the connection between food chains and food webs. 

For the past couple of years the children in KS2 have enjoyed putting on a production and we are planning on doing the same this year. The name of our summer production 2023 will be revealed later on this week.

In KS2 we have been joined by Miss Booth, a PGCE student on her developing placement from Cumbria. She has spent a few weeks getting to know the class and this term she will be teaching Y 5&6 in the morning and will also be teaching to the whole class in the afternoon later on in her placement.

This term Y5/6 are doing Forest School on a Thursday and Y3/4 will be doing PE.

Reading and homework

Regular reading is a fundamental part of your child’s learning both at school and at home. Please fill in reading records. Times tables are also essential and need to be practised regularly at home along with spellings and times tables.



Forest School

Forest School is now on Thursday afternoon and for this half term is for Y5/6 They can still come into school in their Forest School gear.Keep an eye on the weather as a change of clothes/hat/suncreen might also be useful.


Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries.


Mrs Murray and Mrs Hough.




Keep an eye on this website and your emails - there are bound to be changes!
