Our Big Journey

 

This half term, our Autumn 2 Big Journey is- London's Burning!  How has London changed?

Our 'Super Start' is creating a Pop Art Firework Picture.

Our 'Fantastic Finish' is re-creating The Great Fire of London by building our own Pudding Lane then burning it to the ground!

 

Literacy

   

 

In Literacy, we will be completing lots of research about our capital city, London, and creating our very own non-chronological reports.   As we near Christmas, we will also be studying the John Lewis advert 'Excitable Edgar' and completing linked sequencing activities, thoughts and feelings, descriptive work and story writing!

 

We would also love our parents to come into school and share some learning with us so we are going to perform our KS1 Nativity 'Hey Ewe!'  We will be working hard to rehearse our acting, singing and dance routines!

 

In our class VIPERs sessions, we analyse a range of stories through different media.  This half-term, we will be working on a short film called 'Bubbles'.  Every class also has a chapter book as a daily reader, focusing on authors such as Michael Morpurgo, Enid Blyton and Dick-King Smith.

 

Children take part in daily reading activities in school. We feel that this will help to develop the children's decoding, fluency and comprehension skills. Children have the opportunity to change their reading book every Monday and Thursday. Please make sure children read every night as reading is vital to ensure that children make progress with their learning. There is lots of evidence to show that children who read regularly at home improve their attainment in maths and writing too!

 

Mathematics

In maths, we will be focusing on multiplication, shape and money  We will work hard to develop our key problem solving skills, in both practical and written contexts.  

 

Computing

Let's Get Started!

The children will learn how to navigate the Internet and create their own digital content!
