Image result for the brilliant world of tom gatesThis Spring term, our writing and reading will be inspired by two books - 'The Brilliant World of Tom Gates' and 'The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.' We will be reading both of these books in groups, as a class and through role play. 

We will develop our literacy skills by writing in many different styles and formats including descriptive writing, stories, poems, instruction guides and non-chronological reports.

We will work on our spelling, grammar and punctuation daily and also improve our reading comprehension through guided reading sessions.

As ever, we advise parents to do as much reading with children at home as possible. It is also important to try and ask your children questions about their books. 

Spelling

In the first half term of the Spring we will prepare for First Holy Communion. Using The Diocese of Leeds resource 'Heart Speaks to Heart' we will begin to understand how and why Holy Communion is such a special and beautiful gift.

In the second half term we will learn about 'Jesus the Saviour.' As we track through Lent we shall learn about Jesus' sacrifice on the cross and how dying for us frees us from sin and death.
