Wonderful World: Special Places and Things

 

We have taken the opportunity of exploring current environmental issues and poetry writing whilst using the new guided reading book (the Wonder Garden by Kristjana Williams) as our information starting point and stimulus. It will also be a chance to design our own front covers, following her wonderful artistic style.

 

 

Over the half term holiday please can you ensure your child has a copy of the book and has read it, there will be no other homework. It is time we all had a little break! Enjoy the rest time before that big C word gets mentioned!

Thank you all for celebrating the Egyptians so much during out topic work. We have loved learning about this time in history and exploring facts and tastes from this time and location.

Autumn Term topic: Wonderful World: Ancient Egypt

 

Following an amazing year as Woodpeckers and a wonderful summer break Mr Bishop and myself, Mrs Stiles are ready and rearing to go! We have new topics chosen by the children before the summer, new ideas and lots of creative, inspirational energy to share. Some aspects of the curriculum are familiar but we have altered and tweaked things to make them new and exciting for this year Kingfishers.

 

Our topic theme for the autumn term is our Wonderful World which includes Ancient Egypt for the first term. Thereafter we will branch out to include the natural world, special places and things. Our topic will drive our English lessons and all other aspects of the curriculum so watch out to see how creative we can be! Maths will be more discrete, using problem solving to gain confidence and independence.
