The children will be writing in a variety of genre this term including; diary entry, non-chron report, letter to an Australian of a similar age. Wherever we can we try to link our writing with our theme. 

For example

Diary entry

The children are going to be taken back in time on a journey to Australia by boat, 100 years ago. The children have never seen a boat of this size before, they have few possessions, are travelling in 3rd class and will be on the boat for 6 weeks to reach their destination. How do they feel leaving the country they know so well? What will the journey be like? How will they feel when they arrive on the other side of the world?


Flamingo class are going to be linking up with an Australian school and writing letters to children of a similar age telling them all about life at Wrawby School. Maybe these children will be pen-pals for life!

Non- chronological Report

Using what the children have learnt so far, and based on their own research, the childrne will be writing a report about life in Australia.

Homework is given out every half term. Please check homework books for up-to-date information regarding current homework. 


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; Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons, but sometimes we like to mix things up...and it's always good to be prepared! laugh
