 Science: our topic this term is:

 Animals including Humans. 

 Seasonal Change. 

 We will be continuing to learn about Animals including Humans where we will be focusing on learning about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. We will also be learning about seasonal change. 

This topic is taught throughout the year as the children learn about all of the seasons with a focus on how this impacts the length of the day. 

 

History: Our topic Famous Queens:

In History we will be learning about different queens and comparing them. This includes Queen Elizabeth the first, Queen Elizabeth the second and Queen Victoria.

  

RE: This half term we will be learning about Christianity

 We will be thinking about if it was always easy for Jesus to show friendship.  

 

   PE will be on a Monday and a Friday. 

 

 Home learning project for this half term:

The home learning challenge has been posted on Goggle Classroom. 

 

 

 

Weekly Spellings

Every Monday by 9 AM the weekly spellings will be posted on google classroom. The spellings will be reviewed in class the following week.  

This will be completed in the Home / School spelling book which will be sent home weekly to enable you to see what your child wrote. We are trialing this in the Autumn term as we appreciate that a lot of work goes into helping the children with the spellings and we wanted parents to have the opportunity to know how their child wrote the words. 

The book will be sent home every Tuesday and we would like you to sign on the bottom when you have looked at the score on any day that week. Please ensure the home / school spelling book is in your child’s book bag on a Monday morning.
