This year we will be introducing our new contexts as part of the new Welsh Curriculum.
Our context for the Autumn term is 'World at War'. We will be learning about conflicts throughout history focusing on WWI and WWII.
We will be linking all other areas of the curriculum to this context which will develop children's understanding of the context and provide enjoyable learning experiences.
In literacy this term we will be focusing on two key texts, 'War Horse' and 'Goodnight Mr Tom'. Through these texts children will develop their understanding of life during the war and will develop their writing skills to create their own war letters and stories.
The children will continue to read a range of texts through Guided Group reading sessions as well as taking books home each week as part of their homework. Please encourage your child to read at home.
This term the children will be learning maths through their context of war by linking numeracy skills to topics such as rationing and war recipes. Also this term, there will be a large emphasis on developing Big Maths where children will be working on their C.L.I.C challenges.
