Welcome to our Summer Term!



  • Reading diaries should be in school everyday.
  • Pupils should read for at least 20 minutes everyday and record this in their diaries. Your child should be reading at least three times a week at home. The children can record if they have read themselves. 

  • Reading diaries need to be in school everyday. We will be checking these daily.

  • Spellings are tested every Friday. You can find this weeks spellings below. These will also be given out every Friday.

  • Maths homework is also given at the end of each unit.

  • The children will have two PE sessions a week. On a Thursday they will need to come to school wearing appropriate footwear e.g. trainers or plimsolls (they will still need to wear school uniform). They will also have a PE session on a Friday morning, they should come to school in their PE kits on this day and do not need to change back into uniform afterwards.
  • On a Friday the children will also have an ICT and Music lesson in the morning from a specialist teacher.

  • Children are tested regularly on their times tables throughout the week, however further practice at home is greatly encouraged. Children can access their 'Timestable Rockstars' accounts from home to help them with individual support. 

  • We kindly ask that a water bottle is brought to school to ensure your child stays hydrated for working at their best potential!

    Every child has access to fresh, cool water to fill their bottle up. Children are not allowed to bring juice or any other drinks into school (water only please)

Who is Robin Hood? Myth or legend?



This term our topic is Robin Hood and whether he was a myth or a legend. Through this we will explore our local history and geography.  This builds on our previous local history and geography unit where we learnt about Bulwell and our local communal history.


We will be exploring questions such as:

Who was Robin Hood?

What tales was he involved in?

Who were the Merry Men?

What time period did he live in?

Was he a hero or villain?


To further explore the legend of Robin Hood we will have a medieval day of fun where we will dress up as characters from the legends, and have a practise of drama and medieval music.


At the end of this topic we will have a Medieval Banquet to celebrate all our hard work as a class! 


Learning at Home - COVID-19


If your child is currently off school due to self-isolation, illness or school closure and you would like to continue their learning at home, please click the rainbow below to access some recommend resources.

PRIDE Points


At Snape Wood, we believe that every child should feel proud to be part of our school and therefore we have PRIDE points.


Each letter represents one of our school values:

      Positive Attitude






Children are awarded PRIDE points when they have been spotted showing these school values.


In each class, we use Class Dojo to record PRIDE Points. Children can spend their collected points at our PRIDE Points shop.

If you download and sign in to the Class Dojo App, you can see your child's points and get notifications when your child is given them.

If you need a letter to receive your child's Class Dojo code, please just let me know.



At Snape Wood, we use a traffic light system for behaviour:


Green - All children are on green at the beginning of the day.

Orange - If a child breaks one of our school rules, they are given a reminder and asked to change their behaviour. If the child does not correct their behaviour, their name is moved down to orange.

Red - If they still do not improve their behaviour, the child's name is moved down to red. If a child's name is on red and their behaviour does not improve, they will be isolated on a table in the classroom.  


Children can move their name back up the traffic light system and we encourage children to work their way back up to green.


Green Cards - These are sent home with your child every Friday, if they have shown positive behaviour throughout the week without moving onto orange or red. This is a chance for both you and us to celebrate their positive behaviour. The children love being given the cards and are excited to take them home. Your child's green card is entered into a prize draw each Monday, if it is brought back into school once you have signed it.


Red Cards - These are sent home with the child if their name is on red at the end of the day or if they have shown extreme behaviour which warrants an instant red card. Please have a conversation with your child about their behaviour if they come home with a red card, and sign and return the card the following morning.
