Dear Parents,

Welcome back to another year at Little Sutton Primary School. We hope you enjoyed the summer holidays and we look forward to working with you and your child this year.

These curriculum notes are intended to give you an idea of the topics your child will be studying during the Autumn term. We have also written a reminder with regards to dinner money, medication and equipment needed in school.

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.
