PTA Film Night - 12th December                 Welcome to Cummersdale Primary School                

Our topic this Autumn term

This Autumn term our topic is Space. We will be learning all about the planets and space travel.

 This term in English using the Wordsmith Scheme for our work in class we will look at -  

Our Fiction topic this term is entitled - Fantastic voyages and we look at the book - The man in the moon by Simon Bartram

We will also be doing some poetry and our topic is entitled pattern and rhyme -. the class will listen and respond to various poems as well as drafting and editing their own and reading aloud.

Our Non-fiction topic this term is - Fantastic Jobs and focusing on being an astronaut.

Our reading scheme is the Oxford Reading Tree. We aim to hear most children read their own book several times a week and change all reading books every day as needed. We encourage parents / carers to hear their child read every day if possible. Staff also hear children read daily in every Read, Write, Inc session and children do guided reading sessions too.

 In Maths we use the Big Maths scheme for our daily Maths lessons. On Monday mornings we all do a timed Beat that maths test. 

 Science this term will focus on Materials.

In History this term we will be learning all about Neil Armstong - Man on the moon.

PE is twice a week on Mondays and Fridays. Please can you make sure your child has the correct PE kit on these days. ( PE lessons will be outside weather depending so please make sure your child has suitable footwear for lessons) 

Our Teaching Assistant  is - Mrs Haughan who is in school everyday.

We have help still on Wednesday afternoon from  Mrs Allison who enjoys hearing our class read and Mrs Vickers helps on a Tuesday afternoon. We are very grateful for all help in school.

If you would like to help in school please see a member of staff - we always appreciate an extra pair of hands!
