This half term’s topic is ……
Stories by Emily Gravett
The half term’s topic an author study where we will be looking at books by Emily Gravett. Due to the topic being very literacy based we will be doing a lot of reading and writing fiction texts and we may also be trying our hand at writing stories ourselves.
Our CLASP sessions this half term will be linked to the topic as during each lesson the children will be focussing on a favourite story. In order to develop a love of reading we will be creating a calm and cosy environment and then a member of staff will be sharing a story with the children. The children will then do a creative activity lined to the story. The homework activity is also reading related and again is trying to develop the love of reading.
Maths - multiplication and division
Science - Sound
CLASP - I am a Bookworm
Art - Painting inspired by Emily Gravett’s illustrations.
R.E. - Christianity - The Easter Story
Look at what we have been doing in CLASP. We have had such fun trying all the different science experiments.
For all our Read Write Inc sessions the children will be split into groups depending on where they are up to. Each group will have spellings to take home for a test at the end of the week. The test will be first thing on Friday morning and the new spellings will be given out on that day too. This is part of the children’s homework as we feel it is very important that spellings are learnt in school and at home. They will be expected to bring in their spelling sheet each Friday to show the staff what they have been doing at home.
