Autumn Term - First Half 2019 - 2020
After the long summer holidays we are sure you are all ready for the start of the Autumn term. We are so keen to explore our topic this term - The Vikings.
We are going to start the year by taking the train to York which includes visiting the Yorvik Centre and taking part in some fantastic activities as well as exploring some of this wonderful historic city.
Mrs Evans and Mrs Kennedy are also excited that we have two learning areas for you in the mornings this year which means we will be able to have lovely small classes and spend lots of time with each of you.
In maths we will start the year looking at place value and then move on to addition and subtraction. We will use lots of resources and have found some interesting problems for you to solve.
Mrs Kennedy's group will be studying 'Viking Boy' as our class book in guided reading and writing lessons and will write setting descriptions followed by a newspaper report. Those pupils working with Mrs Evans will start by creating Viking fact files and then a narrative based on 'The Sage of Erik the Viking'.
When we come together in the afternoon our science will be a study of the circulation with a look at the function of our blood.
Mrs Johnson and Mrs Kiernan will be teaching you on Monday and Tuesday afternoons this half term with RE and French taught by Mrs Kiernan and PE and PSHE taught by Mrs Johnson.
Spellings will be given out on a Friday and will be tested in school on the following Friday. A copy of the spellings can be found by following the links at the top of the page.
The most important thing is that you feel happy and safe in school so if you have any worries please speak to someone as we are all here to help you.
Mrs Kennedy and Mrs Evans
