Little Sutton Primary School Reception Year Curriculum Plan
Welcome back to the last half term at Little Sutton Primary School for this academic year.
These curriculum notes are intended to give you an idea of the topics your child will be studying during the last part of the Summer term. We have also written a reminder with regards to dinner money, medication and equipment needed in school. Details with regards to homework are also included.
We hope that these notes will enable you to support your child with the work they are carrying out at school by providing them with opportunities to extend their knowledge of the subjects. We would also appreciate you supporting them to complete homework to a high standard and return it on time as well as ensuring they have all the equipment they will need.
