Summer News



Can you believe we are already in the Summer Term! It only seems like yesterday that it was snowing in Stokenchurch. The year is flying by with year 5 children working exceptionally hard. Over the next term children have got a lot to look forward to in what is set to be a very busy term indeed.This of course starts with all the learning that will take place in the classroom.


In English children will be developing their writing skills even further focussing on implementing tricky grammatical features, such as commas for parentheses, as well as continuing to enjoy our 4th class story of the year (How to Train your Dragon). In Blocked Teaching work will be spread across a variety of different subjects; from investigating habitats in science, developing our sewing skills in DT to finding out about mountains in Geography. In Maths we continue to follow our Busy Ants maths scheme.


What else could we possibly fit in? To name a few: House Tournaments, CATs tests, Spokes Cycling, Sports Day, Holmer Green Handball tournaments, Swimming Season and the annual music concert. Oh and how could we forget our Willen Lake trip and presentation. Of course further details of each of these will be given out as each event approaches. Below are some key dates to be aware of:


Holmer Green Handball Tournaments – Friday 20th April/Friday 27th April

Willen Lake Parent Meeting – Wednesday 2nd May

Assessment Week –14th May – 18th May

House Tournaments – 21st May – 25th May

Music Concert – Thursday 24th May

11+ Meeting - Thursday 14th June

Year 5/6 Sports Day – Friday 22nd June

Willen Lake Trip – Thursday 28th June/Friday 29th June

Willen Lake Presentation to parents – Friday 13th July



A quick reminder, can you please ensure that homework diaries are signed every week, as although this process started well at the beginning of the school year we have noticed that more and more children are coming in on a Monday without signatures.
