Term 1 and 2 - Water
This term our class topic is 'Water'.
The children will be exploring the fantastic book Flotsam during English sessions. This is a wordless book, therefore we are challenging the class to create their own story to accompany the pictures using their Talk for Writing knowledge to help them.
Our class text for guided reading will be The Sandman and the Turtles by Michael Morpurgo which we will be unpicking to look at the style of writing used by him.
In science we will be investigating rocks and soils. The children will be excavating rocks to examine them and test them for durability and permeability. They will also learn about the different kinds of rocks and how they are formed.
