Classroom Photo Gallery

Here are some snaps of our classroom and us in action!


Term 3 Learning

This term our Topic is called, 'Bright Lights, Big City'. It is a Geography based Topic based around London, the UK and then comparing London to a very culturally different city. We will laso use London as a focus for our literacy work, using fiction and non-fiction based around our captial city. The Queen's hat, takes us on a Journey around the famous Landmarks in London and the children will immerse themselves in the langauge anad rhythm of the story before having a go at writing their own!

We will then move to Pudding Lane where we will learn all about The Great Fire of London- why it started, spread so quickly and how they finally stopped it in it's tracks. The children will look at the features of non-fiction writing and in setting out information in a booklet.

Our Science Learning will be focussed on the seasons, weather and other seasonal changes. 

We would welcome any photos you have of visits to London- post them on Class Dojo so we can share them with the class!

Our phonics learning will continue at it's usual pace and the children will soon have their own phonics wallets to help them recognise and use these graphemes at home.

Below you will find some links to websites which have some fun and age appropriate games to try that suport our learning in school.


If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to pop itno the cabin on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday morning to speak with me, email or telephone to make a suitable time to talk. Time is flying this academic year!
