Summer 1

UKS2 Newsletter – Summer 1 2022


Welcome back! We hope you had an excellent half term. A term full of learning and excitement awaits! Our last term of 21/22 and for some last ever at Scotter School!


Reminders for the Summer Term 2022


  • Please ensure your child is prepared for the weather, whether it be a coat or hat and suntan lotion (hopefully).
  • Children should bring a bottle of water with their name clearly on the bottle.
  • Please make sure that all clothing is named. This makes it easier to return to the correct child.
  • Snacks to be eaten at break time must be healthy.
  • Please remember that children are not allowed to bring toys to school, this includes trading cards or stickers – it causes upset if they are lost or broken.
  • Children are responsible for telling an adult when they need to change their books. Adults and children will work together to select an appropriate book.
  • Children will log their progress in their reading diaries. The diaries will be checked each Friday. Please can adults check their logs and initial.


PE days:

  • Kingfisher -Tuesdays and Fridays.
  • Kestrel – Tuesdays and Thursdays (Y5 swimming)
  • Fox – Thursdays (Swimming) and Fridays
