What we are learning

 

Our new topic in Autumn 1

 

Conquering Castles 

 

For this topic, we will focus on the story

ZOG by Julia Donaldson. 

 

 

Week beginning 14/10/19

 

We will be following our successful 'Talk for Writing' programme, whereby the children will learn the language and actions of the story, so that they can get to know the story really well and retell it to others. As a class, we will change one aspect of the story and then the children will invent their own. 

 

We have now all written our own versions of 'Zog!' This week we will be looking back at our writing and thinking about how we can make it even better. Each child will be focusing on their individual writing targets.

 

In Maths, we are going to be doing lots of problem solving! The children will be expected to use their 'mathematical talk' to explain how they have solved the problems.  

 

For our topic work, we will be making our very own cucumber sandwiches for our Royal Garden Party!
