Class read

This half term have been learning all about the story of Beegu. This adorable alien crash landed in school on her spaceship and we wrote lost posters for her and made her feel very welcome in our classroom. We then wrote persuasive letters to Mr Chapman to convince him to let Beegu stay with us. We secretly left the letters in Mr Chapman’s office and they were so beautifully written, that we achieved our mission and Mr Chapman let Beegu stay with us!


Class Poem

This half term in our daily rhyme time, we will be singing the following nursery rhymes: Row, Row, Row your Boat, Little Jack Horner and nativity songs. 



Knowledge Organisers should be used to support your child throughout the topic being covered. They provide end points which is the knowledge that children will gain from this unit of work. They also show the learning that has taken place before and how this will link to future learning. Children will use these both in school and at home to supplement their learning, allowing us to work collaboratively together.


Knowledge Organisers are designed to help provide additional support and direction for families to support learning at home. They can be used as a point of reference for year group knowledge and expectations within the given topic area.
