Welcome to Term 3
Topic- Bright Lights, Big City.
Hang on, there's someone new in town! Marley the Meerkat (he's come all the way from Zambia, you know!) is here to find out all about our capital city and he needs your help.
We will be helping Marley find out all about London, including it's history, famous landmarks and transport. We will be stepping back in time to discover what happened in the Great Fire of London. We will be creating a model of the bakery on Pudding Lane...Stand well back and watch how the flames spread. London's burning! Fire, fire! Fire,fire!
Our current text, The Bear Under the Stairs by Helen Cooper, is encouraging us to remember and discuss our own fears from when we were very little. We realise now that often it's only our imagination playing tricks on us. There is a Bear Under William's stairs though and we're doing our best to help him find a solution!
Welcome to Oak Class
After each topic in maths, we have been giving the children quizzes to check their recollection of key aspects. Many of you would have seen these at Parents' Evening as they are a useful tool to make sure that children are still able to use important skills, even when the maths that they are currently learning has moved on.
We will be adding these quizzes once the children have taken them, so that you can support your children with any areas that they are not confident with.
A warm welcome back to you all. The curriculum for Years 1 and 2 is jam-packed, fun and exciting and I hope the children will enjoy this year immensely.
