Heather Avenue

Infant School


Welcome to the Summer term and our new topic, “Get Set Go!”

In Hedgehogs class, we will be learning all about our health and how to look after ourselves; how to get fit, eat well, and be happy! We will explore a variety of sports and types of exercises and find out how physical activity can be fun AND keep us fit. We will also be exploring our senses, learning to sequence the human life cycle and compare it to contrasting animals! 

Within our Art topic, we will be improving our sketching skills through drawing the London Aquatic Centre as well as exploring some printing. During our Design and technology focus, we will be developing our knowledge of creating moving levers and sliders to create our very own obstacle courses! 

During International Week, we will be learning all about Peru; the famous landmarks and buildings, traditional food and listening to music associated with Peru. If you or your child would like to bring in any souvenirs or have any interesting facts, your teacher would love to hear or see them during our International Week!

Our Science topic will focus on our health, senses, the human life cycle, and animal life cycles. We will also be looking at the seasons. During our History lessons, we will be focusing on the history of the Olympics, as well as participating in our own class Olympics.

Mrs Howes will be teaching in Hedgehogs Monday - Thursday and Mrs Barnard will be teaching in Hedgehogs on a Friday.

We have PE every Wednesday and Thursday.  We ask that your child wears their PE kit to school on these days.  Please could earrings be removed and longer hair tied back on PE days.  PE kit should include black shorts, a white t-shirt, plimsolls and black tracksuit bottoms or leggings. 

Please also ensure that your child has spare clothing in their bags in case of any toilet accidents. These should be kept in school on your child’s coat peg.


The children will take part in cooking/food preparation activities throughout this term, learning a range of useful life skills linked to cooking. Food will be consumed in class at our daily snack session. 


Each week your child’s homework will be to complete 30 minutes of Reading Eggs which is assessed and monitored weekly and a task on School Jam, a Maths App linked to Power Maths.

Children will read daily in school as part of their RWI lesson, and we ask that they also read at home three times a week with diaries being read and signed each time.  This will help your child to receive their reading sticker, ALSO each Friday each class will be competing for the reading trophy in celebration assembly, the more children that read 3 times a week the more chance we have of winning!

If you have any queries in regard to this homework, please don't hesitate to speak to Mrs Howes
