After the holidays we will continue with the story Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson. Our Learning objectives covered will include:

  • To write poems
  • Learn how to use expanded noun phrases to describe and specify
  • Use of capital letters, full stops, question marks and exclamation marks
  • Develop positive attitudes towards and stamina for writing by: writing for different purposes- story writing
  • To learn poems by heart, performing these with appropriate intonation to make the meaning clear.



After the holidays, in maths we will continue to look at position and direction also extending to co-ordinates. Our Learning objectives covered will include:

  • To use the vocabulary associated with Directions.
  • To describe Position and Direction of objects.
  • To describe whole, half and quarter turns.



Our topic From A to B will continue after the holidays.

As Historians we will look at images and photographs of various transport types throughout history. We will work in groups to sort the images into land, sea and air.  

The final part of the task will involve trying to order the transport from the oldest to the most modern. We will then share and discuss our ideas to see if there are any differences of opinion.

As we conduct our research about transport in History, we will think about, When was the transport invented? Who invented it? What did it look like? Is it still used today?
