Autumn Term 2019

Roald Dahl day 2019 - On Friday 13th September Haslam Park took part in Roald Dahl Day. We all had a super day. In the afternoon we all made potions just like “George.” We wanted to make Mrs Newton disappear but it didn’t work. See you Monday!

Autumn 1 Topic 

We have been learning all about how people lived in 1666 and how people live today.  We have looked at some great pictures and compared them. 


Did you know in 1666 people didn't have electricity? They used candles to light the streets and homes.  

The fire started on Puddling Lane in a bakery.  In the bakery they made lots of bread.  In DT this week we are tasting lots of different kinds of bread such as garlic bread, fruit bread, chocolate bread (yummy) and cheese bread.  

English - This half term in English we will be doing lots of work around the book 'Oi Frog.'  This week we have been enjoying sharing some non-fiction books all about frogs. 


Reading - 'Who Done It?'  In reading comprehension we will be exploring the book 'Who Done It?'  We have made some great predictions.  


Maths - We have just started our 'Power Maths' journey.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Look at our lovely freeze frames above. ^^^^^^^^^^


We have really enjoyed all the “Oi ....” books.  Our favourite has got to be “Oi Duck - Billed Platypus.” We have worked really hard on rhyming words. 




                   Can you think of anymore rhyming strings???

The Tiger Who Came To Tea

In English we are now starting to look at the story 'Tiger Who Came To Tea.'  

In science we are learning all about materials and their properties. Take a look at some of our sorting activities.  We then labelled the classroom.  We have carried out experiments to see which materials are bendy, waterproof and transparent.

Homework - In the back of your child’s planner there are two logins - one for Spelling Shed and one for Times Tabes Rockstars. A letter will follow in the next couple of weeks explaining how to login and access both websites. They are a fantastic way to help children learn at home. Children will also have a homework journal where they will share their learning at home with us in school. We have given you some suggested ideas but feel free to add some CREATIVE and EXCITING ideas of your own.
