Our book for Autumn 1 is 'Gorilla' by Anthony Browne. This is a short story about a girl who LOVES gorillas, and ends up going on a magical adventure one night with a stuffed

teddy gorilla who comes alive! We will be writing our own story where a stuffed animal comes alive and takes us on a magical adventure.


What are we learning in Autumn?

Our History this half term is learning about the Anglo-Saxons and how they came to settle in the UK.  We will also be starting Spanish which is very exciting!  Our RE will have a Christianity focus

where we will be learning why is it so hard to do the right thing? 

Home Reading

Our school aim is to complete at least 5 reading at home sessions each week. We will be monitoring reading at home closely by checking reading diaries each day and changing children’s books once a week, if required. We encourage children to develop their own sense of 'reading for pleasure' and would love to see the texts that children are also reading at home.


Our PE lessons are on a Wednesday. As per the PE uniform policy, children are to come dressed in their PE kit on both of those days.



Children will write their spellings into their spelling journals-however, there will be no test. These words are for the children to continuously improve their spelling and their overall vocabulary.


Online Learning Resources

Our children have access to a range of online resources to aid their learning. Here are the links to some useful websites that children can use whilst not in school, their usernames and passwords can be found in their School Planner.  All children are familiar with how to use these.
