The Mayflower Primary School


                                              Welcome to the Spring Term!


We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and feel refreshed and ready to start the new term. 


This term, we have a Geography theme of 'Explore' and this will be woven into much of the work we do. 


In History, we will be learning about Kings and Queens and this will link to our Geography work which will be about castles. In Art and Design, we will be exploring composition, texture and colour as we learn about landscapes and seascapes. This, in turn, will link with our Design and Technology work which will be about 'Structures', namely building a castle! 


We will begin our English work with a narrative unit entitled 'The Queen's Hat' whilst in maths we will be learning about shapes and measurement. Our first science unit, this term, is 'Everyday Materials'. 


PE days will be Monday and Tuesday. However, on the odd occasion, PE may be moved to a different day so please ensure that your child has their indoor and outdoor PE kit in school at all times. 


Finally, please continue to send your child's reading book and diary into school every day. We will continue to change books on Monday and Friday. Hopefully, lots more children will earn Karate Reading Bands this term and be entered into the reading raffle. Remember, you have to read at least 5 times a week to be entered into the raffle. You've got to be in it to win it!!
