Our learning journey - Summer 1

Keep your eyes peeled for exciting learning happening during the Summer term!

In the meantime, here are some photos from our AWESOME trip to the Space Centre in Leicester.


Times tables up to 12

Speedy recall of times tables is vital for success in so many areas of maths. Children should practise their times tables weekly at home and these can be found in their reading diaries. Children must also know the related division facts.


It is absolutely crucial that children read for at least 10 minutes each day at home. This will enable them to build a wider vocabulary and a rich imagination.

If you have any questions about how to support your child at home, we would be more than happy to help!​​

Homework and useful websites

Children must continue to read as much as possible.

Children are to practise times tables every week - we have bought TT Rockstars following a trial by children in Fothergill, passwords have been handed out - speak to Miss Mousley if you have lost yours.

Work to be proud of in Year 5

Behind the names!

Watson Fothergill, originally born in Mansfield, was an English architect who designed over 100 unique buildings in Nottingham. I wonder if you can spot any of his architecture while you are out and about in Nottingham!
