Holly Class are on a Learning Journey...
We are using traditional tales to create new characters and innovate a story. We will also be writing letters and instructions to practice writing different sentence types.
We are currently working on fractions, and continuing to work on our calculation skills, including column addition and subtraction.
Learning Challenge Curriculum
Our topics stem from Learning Challenge questions, through which we cover Science, Geography, History, Art and D&T. Our questions are:
How can we grow our own salad?
Where would you prefer to live- England or Africa?
Would a dinosaur make a good pet?
What would Dora find exciting about our city?
What was it like when the Queen came to the throne in 1953?
Why do we love to be beside the seaside?
We had a great time working with Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, as part of our Geography topic. We took part in a traditional Spring Tree Dressing.
We have used our school minibus to have a tour of our local area, taking photographs of local places of interest.
Reading has a positive impact on many areas, including language and writing. We recognise the value of regular reading of a range of books, and ask you to read at home at least three times a week. This does not have to be the book allocated by school.
