Autumn Term 2018

Dear Parents and Carers

Here is an overview of the exciting themes and topics to be covered this Autumn Term. As we welcome our new Year 3 children to our classroom in the afternoons, we are going to build on their knowledge in a previous topic of castles. Therefore, our main theme of history will cover the Norman Invasion. Our learning across the curriculum will be linked to our topic where appropriate. A topic homework grid will be sent out shortly and will be available online. We look forward to your children’s ever-inspiring homework enhancing our classroom soon! Thank you in advance for the help you provide with this.
