Summer 2021

Hello future Hawks Class!


Mrs Clark and I are really looking forward to seeing you all back in school in September and to share the journey of this coming year with you. We already have exciting learning themes planned with lots of fantastic learning experiences. I cannot wait to reveal our learning theme for the Autumn Term (it is one of my absolute favourites and I know you are going to really enjoy it too!) 


This year will bring us all so many opportunities to grow and learn together. As your teacher and TA, we will expect you to have high expectations for yourselves and to work as hard as you can to be the best that you can be


I wonder what you want to get better at next year? We understand that reaching your goals can sometimes be frustrating, especially when you get stuck at something! It can take a long time to become an expert at something you are not yet so good at. In fact, scientists have proved that the only way to learn is to try something new and work really hard at it…even if you make lots of mistakes. 


Yes – we want you to make mistakes next year! In order to be successful you need to try something tricky, make mistakes, get feedback and then learn from them. Remember, the worst mistake anyone can make is to be afraid to make one! 


Mrs Clark and I are really looking forward to learning with you next year and seeing you all reach your goals!

Optional - Why not have fun with this year's Summer Reading Challenge?


This year’s nature theme, Wild World Heroes, features amazing books, awesome rewards, and plenty of ideas for taking care of our environment. There are also online games, competitions and digital stickers to unlock on the Summer Reading Challenge website. Visit your local library to take part in the challenge – I wonder how many of Hawks will earn themselves the Summer Reading Challenge medal?

Be a mathematical master!


Please keep practising your Maths Passport targets including your times tables and division facts over the summer as these will REALLY help you next year!
