Dear Parents/Carers and children,
Welcome back after the summer, I hope you all had a good break. The children have settled well into their new class
This term our Curriculum Topic is:
What is above our heads?
All of the work that we do during the Autumn Term will link to our Science and History topic: Space.
We will be investigating what is up there, reading stories and finding out about the lives of some very interesting people.
During literacy, we will be looking at the life of Professor Stephen Hawking. We will be reading a book all about his life and trying to discover more about this interesting man. We will then write a detailed biography all about him and the many achievements he had within his lifetime. Our fiction focus for this term will be based around the science fiction book ‘Eric’ – an outsider who finds himself in a new mysterious world.
Our Science focus this half term will be Stars and Planets. We will be learning all about the solar system in which we live and the many other planets and stars which share it with us. We will also be looking at light during this term; understanding what light is and what it does.
So all in all quite a packed programme. You can help support your child in school by reading with them as often as you can, helping them with any homework in their ‘Living and Learning Books’, encouraging them to use Times Table Rockstars and Mathletics.
Any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to come and find me at the end of the school day or make an appointment via the office.
We are inspired by the awe and wonder of the world.
We are bold and innovative in our approach to find new solutions to the challenges we face.
We are the best we can be.
We take responsibility for our actions in an environment of mutual respect.
We overcome all barriers to reach our potential, developing a capacity to improve further.
We are passionate about learning.
