Amazing Art

Children have enjoyed using paint to mix colours and create tints and shades by adding white and black. We used our mixed colours to experiment with different painting techniques before drawing and painting a final composition.


Autumn Adventures

This term, we are exploring stories and poetry in different forms. We will then be reading the two novels, in full, as our class readers over the course of the term.

In lessons we will be focussing on word reading and fluency as well as comprehension. Every session we practise using punctuation to help with our expression while reading aloud. We also practise strategies for reading new words and working out the meaning of new vocabulary. As part of our comprehension work, we will be making predictions and asking questions. We will also be learning to recognise different poetic forms and we will be preparing poems ready to perform aloud.
