Welcome to Terms 5 and 6
The Boy at the Back of the
This term we are using the book 'The Boy at the Back of the Class', by Onjali Rauf, as a driver for our learning. This time our focus will be refugees, with both PSHE and Geography elements. We will be learning about refugees, why they may leave their home country and the journey they may take. Through our book, we will also be exploring what life may be like for refugees when they arrive in the UK. We are also excited to be planning a trip to the The Tower of London linked to the children in the story.
Don't forget to look at the knowledge organiser linked above for more details.
Click here for information about our brand new phonics programme. The page will be updated regularly so please keep checking back.
You will find newsletters which tell you all about your child's learning in Phonics/ Spelling on that page too.
We now teach Phonics across FS2 to Year 4 and children attend the Phase and Group that they need.
Your child's teacher will tell you which Phase and Group you need to look at.
This Autumn term, we built shelters linked to our pre-history learning. To do this we had to develop our knot skills, as well as using team work and problem solving. The class worked really well together and enjoyed the practical side of shelter building as well as the evaluation discussions we had afterwards. We think they would have survived well in the Stone Age!
