Heather Avenue

Infant School


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

In Woodpeckers 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.

Miss Barley will be teaching in Woodpeckers Monday - Friday. Mrs Houston will also be teaching Woodpeckers Monday - Tuesday. 

Please continue to check Tapestry as we shall be sharing the children’s work and the different activities we will be doing.

If you have any queries or concerns, or if you would like an appointment to see your class teacher, Miss Barley/Mrs Houston will be available at the class entrance each morning. If a meeting is required, Miss Barley/Mrs Houston can also be available after school, please contact them to arrange this in advance.

We have PE every Monday and Friday. 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. 


Maths homework should now be completed on School Jam, a Math App linked to our Power Maths. A short task will be made available on a weekly basis for the children to complete, linked to their learning in class.

We will listen to your child read at least twice a week, but we ask that children are heard reading at home three times a week and that their reading diary is signed each time. For every three reads your child will receive one sticker on their bookmark. Once their bookmark is full they will be able to choose a book of their choice to keep! Children also have access to the online platform Reading Eggs.
