Literacy

Image result for atticus myths

This half term we will be looking at Greek myths to link with our History work.  We will look at lots of different examples, discuss the different features and what they teach before writing our own version of one of the most famous ones.  

RE - The Liturgical Year

Father Philip came in to speak to us about the different colours worn by priests throughout the church year. We learnt red is worn to show sacrifice or to represent the fire of the Holy Spirit, gold or white are worn to show celebration, green is worn for Ordinary Time (and represents growth) and purple is worn for preparation. Pink and purple, the least-seen colour combination (worn on just two days of the liturgical year), are worn one Sunday in Advent and one in Lent to show excitement ahead of the celebration.

Art-Sculpture

We began our Art work by exploring and experimenting with clay.  We practised the key techniques of 'slab', 'pinch' and 'coil'.  See how many you can spot in our video!

Home Learning

Each week, the weekly spelling list will be posted here to help support your child with their learning. These will be tested on a Friday.

Maths and English homework will be sent out each Thursday to be handed in by the following Tuesday.

Please read with your child every night and sign their reading record.
