Our topic theme this half term is ‘The Wind in the Willows’ where the children will be working towards writing their own animal adventure story. They will be immersed in the focus text ‘The wind in the Willows’ and follow the adventures of Mole, Ratty, Mr Toad and Mr Badger. The children will also be recounting the adventures and events through letter writing. Towards the latter part of the half term, the children will be introduced to a range of classic poems with the focus on Kenneth Grahame’s ‘Ducks Ditty’. The children will write their own verse which they will learn by heart.
In order to enhance their writing further, the children will have an exciting visit to ‘Bring Yer Wellies’ in Hoghton to provide a brilliant hands on learning experience! This will link nicely with their learning on ‘The wind in the Willows’, as they’ll be observing frogs in the pond and racing boats on the river, as well as their current science learning on Living things and their habitats in science. The visit will also consolidate previous learning on plants and growing plants.
Please note that we do also have the KS1 SATs assessments this half term, thus your child’s attendance is paramount in order to ensure their learning is not disadvantaged.
