Hello everyone, welcome to Fox Class.
I hope you all had a fantastic break.
Our connected curriculum theme for term 1 will be Earthquakes and Volcanoes. Our journey through the term will start by reading an exciting book called The Twenty-One Balloons by William Pène du Bois, a well credited piece of American Literature. The book retells the funny account of Professor William Waterman Sherman who crash lands on the Island of Krakatoa (a volcanic island) which fits in perfectly with this terms theme, it is both (in my opinion) funny and engaging.
We will draw on our Artistic talents to design and build our own volcanoes. Alongside the Science behind different States of Matter and chemical reactions ready to explode our creations – so watch this space!
R.E this term will focus on the Creation story, creating links between Genesis 1 and what Christians believe about God and the Creation.
The terms spelling lists are alongside so if your child is unable to find their spellings in their red reading record, you can always find them! TT Rock Stars and Reading Eggs should be used at home to support their learning, but additional practise of their times tables is also essential to learning them.
I look forward to meeting you all,
