This half term the children are learning about the Great Fire Of London
We will be going back in time to 1666 and the era of the Stuarts as they find about The Great Fire of London and the impact it had on the people of the time. The children will explore and investigate when, where, how and why The Great Fire happened, as well as exploring how we know about it through the diary of Samuel Pepys and other sources.
If children have any books, resources, toys or information about The Great Fire of London they can bring them in and put them on our Topic display in the classroom.
In English, the children will be using the text ‘Toby and the Great Fire of London’ by Margaret Nash and Jane Cope as inspiration for their writing. This will also help the children to build links with their topic work on the Great Fire of London. Through this text, the children will explore features of non-fiction stories and will develop their writing.
In Maths we are learning:
Addition and Subtraction.
On Monday children will bring home their reading book. They will change this book every Monday as long as they bring back the previous book. Their stage reading book matches their comprehension level so if they are reading the words easily, ask them questions about the story throughout to help improve their understanding. As the children bring home one book a week please read other books, magazines, etc with your child at home to extend.
This term our PE sessions will be on a Thursday and a Friday afternoon. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school and that it is labelled.
This year children will be given a Topic Homework Task sheet consisting of 8-10 homework activities. It is up to the children which of these homework challenges they complete and they are to be handed in fortnightly on the following dates:
Wednesday 15th November
Wednesday 29th November
Wednesday 13th December
On a week where the Topic Homework Task is not due, children will be given a Maths based from Education City to complete.
Spellings will be given out on Fridays and will be tested the following Friday.
Questions or Queries
If you would like to speak to me about your child please come and see me in the playground before school. Either myself or Mrs Barnes (unless in meetings) will be on the playground at 8.45, where possible please do not come in to the classroom before 8.45 as we are busy setting up for the day. You can also leave a note in your child’s homework diary (which when possible is checked on a Monday and Thursday) or leave a note with your child. If you require a meeting about your child please make an appointment with myself and I will be able to arrange an appropriate time.
