Hello Onyx Class!  There’s lots of fun and exciting things happening this Summer Term at St Mark’s. It’s going to be great!

Our Enquiry Based Concepts this term are: Summer 1: Growing in Confidence – We challenge ourselves to take risks and grow as people. Summer 2: Fulfilling Future – By working together, we can produce something amazing.


We will be reading and analysing ‘Wolf Brother’ by Michelle Paver. We will continue to develop our reading comprehension skills in guided reading lessons and our spelling and grammar skills for our Year SATs.


This term we are going to be revising all areas of learning in preparation for secondary school. We will continue to consolidate our Maths knowledge and apply these skills to real life problems.

RE (Religious Education)

This term we will be learning about how the Christian message survived for 2000 years.

Geography and History

This summer term we will compare disparate peoples and places in the UK, Europe, North America and South America. We will look at our own area and discover the similarities and differences between where we live and these other intriguing locations. We will present our research in a variety of ways.
