Our Big Question this term designed to challenge is ‘Is it right to fight?’. This has already enabled us to provide teaching and learning opportunities that have sparked the pupils curiosity: Why do wars start? What wars do we know about already?

We aim to be able to focus the children’s creativity by looking at Picasso’s Gurenica and responding to this with digital photos and by creating drawing using this stimulus. Design Technology will involve preparing a ‘war-time’ soup and Christmas gift.

P.E will be Tuesdays for the whole class and Thursdays for Year 3 whilst Year 4 have swimming lessons.

New spellings will be given every Monday with testing on the following Monday. These can be practised using ‘ReadiWriter’ online. Maths skills can be consolidated using ‘Mathletics’ and ‘TTRockstars’ online.

Is your child continuing to read at least five times a week? Hopefully the incentive of a special mention in weekly online celebration worship, reading certificates and a star on our new board in the hall which celebrate your child’s achievements are an added bonus.
