Summer 1 "Moon Zoom".

This half term in Blue Class our new topic is space. Each week we will be learning about a different aspect of this unbelievable subject, from the first machine in space to the first man on the moon, we will be covering it all! Through our writing sessions we will be looking to tell stories, using time adverbials, a range of conjunctions and exciting expanded noun

phrases. 

We will also aim to extend your child's vocabulary and ability to use this in their writing. It is going to be a busy term full of exciting opportunities to learn amazing things! 

Some useful links to support your child at home.. 




We will also continue to work on your child’s reading and ability to find key information from the text. This can be tricky so please, where possible, read with your child as much as you can as this has a huge impact.
