Ways to support your child with reading at home.

Summer 2

Oak Class


Mrs Mckeown and Mrs Holt


This half term we are exploring the wildlife of the UK - learning about life cycles of the different types of animal, geography of the UK and habitats these may include, and historical patterns of botany in our local area. We will work towards creating an exhibit about UK wildlife which will inform others and help everyone to look after it in the future. 


Our Class book

For our first week in school, we will be reading 'The Promise' a short story about hope. We are going to use it to inspire some writing and think about how everyone can have an impact on making our world a better place. 

Our class book  is 'The Polar Bear Explorer's Club' but Alex Bell. This adventure story tells the tale of Stella, who dreams of becoming an explorer! In the book, we encounter lots of interesting and challenging characters, as well as magical creatures and perilous situations. 



Mission homework booklets will be handed out and put onto the google classroom - these are creative tasks and will earn pupil's merits if shared via online pictures. English and Maths homework will be uploaded onto the google classroom each Friday, to be completed by the following Friday.



There will be a spelling test on a Friday on a weekly basis.

 The Login for Spelling Shed will also be shared with the children so that they can practice spellings at home on a range of online activities.


Times Tables

Timestable rockstar logins will be provided. This is a fun online resource for children to practice their times tables.



We encourage reading as much as possible and kindly ask that you record any reading done at home in the yellow homework diaries.

Reading books will be changed when your child has finished their reading book.



PE this half term will be on a Tuesday and Thursday, please come into school in your PE kit on these days and take into account the weather.  

If you have any queries, don’t hesitate to contact me at

Autumn 1

Week 1 -  Callum for being so kind and caring to the Acorn children on the gate when showing them to their class. He made them feel really comfortable and it really showed his CHAS qualities.

Week 2 - Issy gets CHAS for being such a superstar helper and noticing when things need doing to help me. She always makes us smile and laugh and has a great attitude.
