Just a few more weeks until Wrawby welcomes the children back to school for Autumn 1, 2017. How exciting!

Please see below for some important information for those joining or staying in Flamingo class with Miss Fowler for 2017/2018. 

The Curriculum - Autumn 1

Our theme to kickstart the new school year is 'Vicious Vikings!' Grrrr... as a Viking might say wink... we will be exploring who the Vikings were, where they came from and why they settled in Britain. In conjunction with our English lessons we will be exploring the Vikings further as we indulge in the fictional tales of; How to be a Viking by Cressida Cowell and Vikings in the Supermarket by Nick Sharratt. In Science we will be exploring the topic of 'everyday materials' and in particular exploring the sorts of materials around in Viking times and investigating the materials used to make clothes and weapons at this time.

Spellings

The children will be tested and given new spellings every Thursday. Year 2 and 3 children will receive different sets of spellings and it is important that the children spend plenty of time learning these through the week. A variety of spelling techniques can be appied at home as well as in school. See the pictures below for some ideas.

Homework

Homework is given out every half term. The first half term will be 'topic' themed and the second half term will be 'science' themed. More information to follow as we enter Autumn 1.

PE

PE is a core subject and we especially take advantage of this at Wrawby. With every attempt to make learning active and engaging, we like to promote a positive and healthy lifestyle at any opportutnity. Please could children bring their PE kits on a Monday and take them home on a Friday. The children will receive 3 PE lessons a week but sometimes we like to mix things up...and it's always good to be prepared! laugh
