Our topic this half term is
Our main topic this half term is about SPACE
We will be learning about the different planets in our solar system and from our research we will write a non-chronological report.
During literacy, we will be writing a suspense story about Dan Drake’s spacewalk. What will happen when he becomes detached from the rocket? Will he float away into space?
We will also be creating some space pictures in art using pastels and oil pastels. We will learn techniques needed to create light and shade on different planets.
In our science lessons we will study the phases of the moon and how we have day and night on Earth.
Our timetable is jam packed and very busy.
Homework is to be handed in every Monday and a new piece will be handed out also on a Monday.
Children will receive a piece of numeracy and literacy homework.
P.E. is taught every Tuesday afternoon with Miss Walker.
Reading - Children will be read to at least once every week and we complete a reading lesson every day. Children need to be reading at least three times per week at home.
Spelling - We will complete spelling practise everyday. Children log the spellings they are learning during the week.
These log books are to be taken home and brought back every day.
