Spring Term 2

This term we have some great topics to learn about. In science we will be learning all about life cycles of different animals and humans. I have some amazing videos to share with you showing how some animals grow and change.  In history we will be finding out about 2 significant historical people-Mary Anning and David Attenborough and the impact they have had on our understanding of natural history. Why don't you try and watch some of David Attenborough's documentaries. We will be looking at some clips from his programs during our learning.


As always we will be continuing to read lots of different books. I wonder which we will read this term to help us fill our reading wall. We will be focusing  on non-fiction books and how they are different to story books, as well as continuing to read our favourite books.

The below document has ideas to help you develop your child's reading for fluency. This is the pace at which they read and the expression and intonation they use when reading. 

Autumn Term 2 

This term we are going to be building on all our the new skills and concepts. We have worked really hard on our reading, writing and maths, and we are now really beginning to shine. We are continuing to read our favourite books weekly and we love sharing these with each other. Keep watching this space for our favourite books. 

Our new topic'Around the World in 80 Days' will allow us to begin to learn about the world around us and the different communities we belong to.  We will be looking at different maps, and locating Wigan, the UK, the 7 different continents and the 5 different oceans on them. 


Our Christmas production this year is going to be different. We are working on this as we speak, and we are quite excited by what it may be. We will keep you posted on this.
