Summer Term Two


Welcome to the last half term of the year Wrens and what an eventful year we have had! We start back into our new half term replying to our letters from our ' Dear New Friend Project' which I know you will be excited about. We are then going to follow a seaside theme for a few weeks and focus on books including 'The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch' and ' Sharing a Shell'. We end of term with Wonderful World Week and this year we are learning all about Iceland and the Icelandic culture! 

Our PE days continue to be on a Tuesday and Friday so please come in PE kits on these days. 

Homework is marked on a Friday so please make sure your bring in your booklets to collect the points for your prizes!

As always please continue reading to your child at least three times a week but because of the impact of COVID reading fives times a week e.g. Monday - Friday will have huge benefits for your child. Please remember that they also have access to Reading Eggs and Phonic Bug online - please email me if you have forgotten their login details. 

We look forward to seeing you all on the first Monday back for a busy half term, if you have any questions please ring through to the main office for a longer conversation or come and see myself (Miss Tuxford) or Miss Stevenson or Mrs McCormack for a quick question who will be happy to help!

Summer Term One 


Hello Wrens, a big welcome back after your well deserved Easter holidays! I hope you have had a good rest as we have got a very busy half term ahead of us packed with great new knowledge, learning and activities! 

We are staring off with one of our favourite books - Farmer Duck and we will be writing to the Farmer to persuade him to be kind to the duck. We will also be exploring the books I will Never Not Eat a Tomato and Zog! 

Our Year Ones will be exploring the theme of 'Pocahontas: Trouble in the tribe' where they will be exploring the world and different habitats. 

Our PE days continue to be on a Tuesday and Friday morning so please come dressed in PE kit on those days. 

A reminder that our homework is marked on a Friday - there are some fantastic activities for the whole family to get involved with too - so please ensure that you bring your homework book in on a Friday. 

Please do read with your child at least 3 times per week, this will have a significant impact on their reading progress and it is an activity which has a whole range of other benefits for both you and your child. 

The children in Wrens also have access to both Phonic Bug and their Reading Egg logins and they love to learn on these. Please do email me if you have misplaced the logins for either. 

As always, if you have any questions please do come and speak to myself, Miss Stevenson or Mrs McCormack.
