War Horse

Our Autumn term story topic is War Horse by Michael Morpurgo. Over the term, we will learn how to write in a range of contexts such as structuring persuasive arguments and using figurative language to write descriptions. We will write letters from the trenches, diaries and explore life in the trench at Christmas!

Our Literacy is linked with our humanities topic, which is World War 1.

In Design and Technology, we will be using different sewing techniques to make homemade Christmas tree decorations which we could have sent to the soldiers in the trenches to remind them it was Christmas.

We will also be preparing and making Trench Stew to sample what food was like during the war.

In Maths, we have been focusing on place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and fractions. We now have a deep understanding of fractions and so we are moving onto decimals and percentages.  We try to make maths activities and challenges as practical and interesting as possible. We will also focus on geometry (properties of shape and position and direction) We will use concrete, pictorial and abstract methods to support our learning. From October, there will be plenty of SATS preparation and an after school booster.

Towards Spring 2,

This year it is a very special time for some of our children who will be receiving the sacrament of Confirmation. In preparation, we are learning in more depth about the disciples, thinking about vocations and the Saints. We will be comparing the Rite of Baptism to Confirmation, and thinking about the importance of the Holy Spirit and what it means to us. We will be also reflecting on the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit on a personal level and how we can use these in our everyday lives as modern day disciples. The pupils receiving Confirmation will each chose a saint and sponsor. They will take our saint’s name during the Sacrament.

In Science, we will be learning all about the circulatory system. We will learn all about how blood travels around the body. We will then create models of the circulatory system. We will learn more about what is in our food and how we can keep different parts of our body healthy.
