Welcome to Zebra Class Term 6

Hello and welcome back! We hope you all had a lovely, well deserved week off.  

Term Six is going to be jam packed with lots of exciting activities including Sports day and our school trip to Westonbirt. Please do take a look at the newsletter below to see all of the important dates. Let's hope and pray for some wonderful sunny weather!

Our History topic is going to be 'Proud History, Bright Future.'  We will be finding out about the local area and how Calne has changed over time. If you are an expert in this field of study, please do come in and share your wisdom! It would be great to have some visitors. 

In Science, we are going to be exploring seasonal changes and how the weather differs throughout the year. We hope to be able to get outside a lot more this term as the weather improves. 

English lessons this term are going to be studying the familiar story of the The Three Little Pigs. We know the children are going to thoroughly enjoy acting out the story, retelling it in small groups and writing their own versions. We are going to have a big focus on finger spaces, capital letters and full stops. 

If you would like to support your child/children with any additional home learning, please do refer to the knowledge organisers which contain key information for the term.

Mrs Humphrey and Mrs Norman


Important Information


- Important dates are found in the Newsletter, please do take a look.

- Please ensure all clothing is clearly labelled with your child’s name.

- Drinks bottles need to be in school EVERY day. These also must be labelled!

- Healthy snacks: We do provide a healthy snack each day but you can also send in one from home if you wish. We do ask that this is also healthy! No biscuits, crisps or sweets.

- Sunhats and suncream would be advisable as the weather warms up. Please ensure your child/children come to school already wearing suncream.  


The children will be given two reading books every Monday, one will be a book carefully matched to your child's current reading level and the other, a story which can be shared together. These can then be kept at home until Friday when they will need to be returned ready for changing ready for the following week.  Please listen to your child read everyday and record this in their reading diary. It is important at this stage in their learning that children re-read a text several times, we recommend reading each book 4 times throughout the week.  Your child will read to a teacher/teaching assistant each week using the books we have in school and a record will be kept by the class teachers. 


PE will take place on a Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure that children WEAR their PE kit to school on these days. We will aim to teach PE outdside as long as the weather permits so please ensure that the children have appropriate clothing for this. Please can you ensure that your child/children wear appropraite footwear that they can fasten independently.

Forest School will take place on a Thursday. Children need to wear their normal school unifrom but have wellies in school for this.
