What We Are Learning in Topic

This term we will begin by learning about The Great Fire of London. The children will work on gaining important research and retrieval skills from non-fiction texts. They will have the chance to explore factsheets and diary entries entailing the events that led up to the fire and its aftermath.

Reading

Reading Morning: Every Tuesday 8:40-8:55 

It is of the utmost importance that you read with your child every day.  The children change their books 3 times a week; Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

 

Spellings

 

Spellings are given out every week on Wednesday. There is a spelling test every Monday. Spelling books should be returned on Monday so that new spellings can go home and our spelling test is on Tuesday. Please help your children practice their spellings daily.

 

Learning Logs

Each half term we will have a topic based home learning project. This term is based on The Great Fire of London. Every child should complete at least one activity each week. Please feel free to help your child make, models, encourage them to draw pictures and write sentence about the topic. We look forward to seeing them in class.
