Autumn Term 2018 - Ancient Greece
A very warm welcome back! I hope that you have all enjoyed a lovely summer break and are ready and raring to go for an action packed Autumn term! This is our class page and here you will find information relating to our learning throughout the year.
We are going to begin the year with a whole school writing project that is based around 'twisted' fairy tales. In Snowy Owls, we will be looking at a rather different version of the traditional fairy tale 'Jack and the Beanstalk.' From this, the children will be writing their own 'twisted' fairy tale from the Giant's point of view. We will also be looking at instructional writing later on in the term. Our on going topic this term is centered around our history topic 'The Ancient Greeks' and will see the children explore a number of different writing genres, whilst demonstrating their developing historical knowledge. Although it is anticipated that the children will study The Ancient Greeks for the entirety of the Autumn term, our English focus will change. To keep up to date with our learning be sure to regularly check the school twitter feed.
I am very much looking forward to meeting you all at the upcoming 'Meet the Teacher' evening on September 11th. During this session I will outline homework expectations, explain the use of reading diaries and curriculum and school routines will be detailed. It is therefore vitally important that this evening is attended. Should you have any queries please feel free to email me using the address at the top of this page.
Here's to another fantastic year of learning at Cuddington Primary School.
