This half-term in English we are learning about the Great Fire of London. We have read the story and have begun to understand what caused the fire and how the citizens of London managed to put the fire out. We are working towards writing a recount of the event using amazing adjectives.

We have begun to study the life of David Hockney and the history of Saltaire in our Topic lessons to prepare us for our school trip to Saltaire, which will take place within the first half-term of Year 2. The trip will enable us to understand how Titus Salt built Saltaire and which facilities are still available today. We look forward to returning from our trip and writing some amazing recounts of our day to Saltaire.

  • Please make sure you read with your child each day and record this as we will respond to your comments accordingly. 
  • Children will have regular times tables tests and spelling tests so please make sure children practice these at home regularly.

In Maths we are focusing on Place Value. We have compared different numbers as well as identifying strategies to order numbers from smallest to biggest.
