We understand the importance of working closely with parents and carers and keeping them informed of what is happening in school. Please see the attached timetable and topic web so you know what is happening  in school, this could be used as a starting point for conversations at home.

In English, the children will initially be celebrating bonfire night by creating tehir own acrostic poems about fireworks and bonfire night itself.

They will then learn the traditional tale 'Jack and the Beanstalk' using Pie Corbett's talk for writing. Over three weeks the children will learn the story, adapt it and then write their own version of the  tale.

 

Their learning in science will be based upon plants and how they are vital to our lives today by supplying different products we use in our everyday lives. They will develop an understanding of the basic structure of plants  and how they are pollinated, how they reproduce using seeds and how these are then dispersed. In geograpy they will develop an understanding of the importance of weather in order for plants to grow.
