Welcome back to your final term at Widey Court Primary School.
This term we will be completing final preparations for our SATs and moving onto secondary school (To Infinity and Beyond).


We will be continuing our own personal journeys as we look to develop our SATs busting skills, revising and consolidating our learning in KS2 and as we prepare for our futures: leaving primary school and moving onto 16 different secondary schools.


Key concepts being taught this term:


Literacy- instructions, creating invites to the royal wedding, creating top tips for Year 5 coming into Year 6- writing using a range of different genres to create our ‘Primary Times’ leavers book.


Numeracy –Problem-solving using decimals and percentages. Applying maths skills through maths projects and problem solving challenges.
