Welcome to the Spring Term


 Beyond the Battle Lines


We hope that you have had a restful and enjoyable Christmas break and would like to welcome you back to the Spring term at Montgomerie! 


Once we have completed our start of term activities, we will be beginning our Spring term topic entitled 'Beyond the Battle Lines' where we will learn all about the wide-reaching impact of World War 2.  We will look at the causes and key evnts of the war in History; plan, design and make rationing recipes and use our sewing skills in D&T; learn about the style of a key artist from that time; and investigate the world-wide scope of the war in our Geography lessons.  In Science, we will be completing a unit of work on Electricity.  E-safety will continue to be our priority in ICT, however we will also be using ICT to support our learning in other subjects.  We will be reading 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas' by John Boyne in our Active Read sessions. 






  • Please ensure ALL items of uniform including coats, shoes, water bottles and lunch boxes are clearly named.  
  • Children must come to school wearing their P.E kit on their P.E days.  For Year 6, these will be on a Monday and Thursday for the Spring Term.  Please remember, children need to have removed earrings prior to coming to school on these days and wear suitable PE kit for colder days, as we will be trying to go outside as much as possible.
  • Children are required to bring in their reading planner, reading book and spelling journal each day.   
  • Your child's lunchbox and water bottles must be wipeable.


Extended Learning Expectations

  • Reading and recording in planners - the minimum expectation for year 6 children is for 20 minutes, five times per week to become a Star Reader.  Children should be writing their own reading comments in planners as wll as parents/carers.  
  • Spellings:  10 words weekly- need to be practised regularly in the spelling journal  
  • Any other homework will be given out every Friday or on SATs Companion.  Homework tasks must be completed by the following Wednesday.


If you need to speak to a teacher, appointments for a mutually convenient time can be made via the office.  Alternatively, email lutherking@montgomerieprimary.essex.sch.uk 


 We are very much looking forward to a great term!
