Welcome back to Autumn Term.
The new School Year is approaching, which means exciting challenges and adventures await both inside and outside the classroom.
In our English lessons, we will delve into the imaginative and fantastical story of 'Return' by Aaron Becker. This wordless picture book encourages children to think for themselves and form their own interpretation of the narrative. The stunning illustrations will leave them spellbound and inspire their creativity.
Our weekly spelling, punctuation, and grammar tests, as well as handwriting practice, will continue each Monday, with homework assigned on Tuesdays and due the following Monday.
Reading underpins all education and as such pupils will be encouraged to read at home for at least five minutes every day. A record of this reading should then be made by a parent/carer in the Home School Journal. Please can you ensure your child’s journal is bought to school each day.
Power Maths is now fully integrated into our curriculum, helping children to develop fluency and deep conceptual understanding. Our weekly arithmetic tests will continue every Monday, and their progress will be recorded in their Home School Journals.
In our Wider Curriculum subjects, we will begin the term by exploring the kind of world Jesus would want in our RE lessons. In Geography, we will focus on Villages, towns, and Cities, while in Science, we will explore the Power of Forces. In Art and Design, we will explore various techniques and ideas, creating a mood board as a visual mind map and source of inspiration. Children will learn tie-dye, weaving, and sewing to create a range of effects using fabric, culminating in a finished t-shirt that showcases their skills. We will continue to develop these skills in Design and Technology, creating cushions.
In computing, we will create branching databases, practice greetings in French, and sing 'The Blues' with Mr. Kitcher in our weekly music lessons.
