Tansley Primary School

Learn, Lead, Achieve, Together We Succeed





It is Spring Term. I hope you all had a brilliant Easter and enjoyed spending it in the sunshine! This term we have SATS and I know you will all do so well because you have been working so hard. Scroll to the bottom to read more about SATS at Tansley 2022. Our new topic is:


"I'm an island survivor, Get Me Out of Here!"




Reading in Elders Class

Children are expected to read a minimum of 4 times a week and encouraged to read both independently and to an adult in order to check comprehension. Please record all reading in the green reading diary. Children will be able to change their own reading books at their own discretion once completing a book. Please can children bring their reading book and diary to school each day.



Spellings will be tested on Fridays and can be found in the corresponding term below. Please revise these at home to support their learning in school and ensure your child can recall the definition of the words. 



Children will be having their P.E. lesson on a Wednesday afternoon and will need to come to school in their P.E kit on this day. P.E kit is trainers, black shorts or joggers (depending on the weather) and a red or white T-shirt (no football shirts). Children should bring a red jumper if needed. Jewellery will need to be removed for health and safety reasons, so it is better if removed at home if possible. If not, it must be covered by medical tape by the child before coming to school.


Times Tables

Times Tables will be tested on Fridays. This may be on paper format or on TTRockstars. Please ensure your child practises using their TTRockstars login. Keep an eye out for challenges being set! 


Please find additional information for this term in the Autumn tab below. 


Remember to be prepared for the weather at various times of year. Remember hats and gloves in the cold weather and sun hats and sun-cream in the summer. Coats are ALWAYS needed, especially as we will have the windows open to allow good airflow.
