Join in the Big Pedal - w/b 23/4                 Welcome to Cummersdale Primary School                

Spring Term 2018


This term we will be exploring Ancient Greece. The children will be learning all about life in Ancient Greece and what the Greeks did for us. There will be lots of exciting Greek Art being made. Watch out for photos of the personalised Greek Urns and the intricate soap sculptures. During the PE sessions the children will be learning the traditional Greek dance Zorba. 

After half term we will venturing in to the world of the Aztecs and learning all about chocolate!! With the run up to Easter I'm sure there will be lots of tasting taking place. 

At the end of Year Six all children must be fluent in their times tables from one through twelve.  It would greatly aid your child's development if you could take the time to practice these tables with them.

Your child has been given a username and password for Maths Whizz ( which is a website that contains maths activities which have been tailored to the needs of each child. Whilst they do use this website at school we hope that they would be able to spend at least 20 minutes each week carrying out activities at home. 

Your child has been given a colour-banded school reading book which they should be reading at home on a daily basis. Please sign your child’s reading record and state which pages they have read. Any additional comments about how they are doing or any problems they are experiencing will help us keep an eye on your child’s progress.

All pupils will be given a set of spellings on Friday which they will need to learn for a test on the following Friday. These spelling lists will also be put online on the Year 5/6 homepage.

Maths homework will be set on a Monday which should be handed in the following Monday.

PE lessons will be on Wednesdays and Thursday, however it would be helpful if all children have their full P.E. kit in school at all times. The PE lesson on a Thursday will take place at Carlisle Gymnastic Club at Morton. Children will be given the opportunity to work on all the different gymnastic apparatus. 

The staff at Cummersdale School will make every effort to ensure that your children receive a first-class education and, working together, we can give them a great start in their academic career.

Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to get in touch.
