We believe that every student at Wormley Primary should have the opportunity to achieve the best possible start to life. We are committed to breaking down any barriers to outstanding achievement and attainment.
The pupil premium is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government to raise the achievement of disadvantaged pupils from reception to year 11. Funding is for children from low-income families who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years (FSM ‘Ever 6’) or are looked after children or from families with parents in the Armed Forces. If you think your child may be eligible for this additional funding then let us know or visit:
Years 3 – 6: Use the above link to check eligibility and apply for pupil premium
Reception, Year 1 or 2: Although your child will automatically receive universal free school meals, you should still register on the above link as, if eligible, the school could get extra money to support your child
Pre-school & Nursery: Please speak to the school directly
We are looking forward to a fun Autumn term as we take a step back in time and learn about the Celts. We launched our topic by visiting the Celtic Harmony Camp where the children became Celtic boys and girls for the day. They learnt how to grind wheat to make bread, weaving to make clothes and learnt about Celtic clans and how herbs were used to make medicines.
We look forward to giving parents the same experience on our Living History Day.
Our Science topic for this term is ‘Human digestion’. The children will complete experiments which will help them to understand digestion and how we get nutrients from food.
English will include short stories of Celtic myths and legends. Children will write a short Celtic story and create a comic strip depicting a Celtic myth or legend.
Please ensure you practice your spellings as you will be tested on these every Thursday. We will also be checking your reading records so please read a minimum of 4 times to receive reading raffle tickets.
Maths this term will focus on place value, mental strategies and times tables practice.
As always, we value helpers with reading, so please let a member of staff know if you are willing to help!
Mrs Oyediwura and Miss Davies
I hope you all have had a great Easter break and you are looking forward to your very last term of the year!
We will continue our learning on the Opera Project which will prepare you all to understand and interpret the performance of La Traviata!
You will also be making your very own opera stage so remember to bring in a shoe box.
Look forward to seeing you!
