Spellings

This year we have sent home the whole terms spellings in weekly blocks. Please help yoru children to learn these at home, it really does help their learning in phonics and their general written work. They will be quizzed on these within school each Friday.

 

If you are unsure which list of spellings your child should be working on(see spelling documents below) please speak to Mrs Wellon or the class TA and they will show you.

For previous terms' information, please see our Topic Webs page.

Happy New Year.

 

We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed spending time with your family and friends. The children have come back to school and they are already immersed in our current topic 'Beautiful Bradford on Avon'.

In the first week back we investigated different types of brdiges and have designed and built our own town bridge to carry traffic across the river.

This terms topic is 'Beautiful Bradford on Avon'

 

In English, the children will be learning a poem about canals. They will then write their own poem about Bradford on Avon using nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs. later in the term they will us the knowledge that they have gained about the town to write a non chronolgical report/information leaflet about Bradford on Avon. They will learn the format for this genre  using Pie Corbett's talk for writing and over three weeks the children will learn features, associated language and then write their own version. In order to do this they will need to undertake their own research from fact sheets and websites. In school we will be using these websites:

 

 

Their learning in science will be based around animals, including humans and what they need to survive and how their habitats are suited to meet these needs.
