Topic

SPRING TERM

Our topic is called 'To London and Beyond!' and for the first half term we will be learning about The Great Fire of London! We will be reading a book called 'Toby and the Great Fire of London' which will help us to develop our writing skills - particulary looking at complex and compound sentences. We will be writing in role after learning about Samuel Pepys. We will have a visit from the Fire Brigade to talk to us about fire safety and even get a close look at a fire engine! From this we will be able to compare life today fighting fires compared to fighting fires during the Great Fire of London! 

The second part of our topic will be 'Space'! We will read 'Flat Stanley goes to Space' by Jeff Brown and further develop our writing - looking at our stamina and accuracy. We will research Neil Armstrong - a significant famous person and explore the planets of our solar system. We will take a trip to Liverpool World Museum and visit the Planetarium!

Reading is a BIG focus this term - lots of short, quick reads to help us with fluency and accuracy. Please continue to read as much as possible at home! Ask lots of questions!
