Welcome to the second half of the Autumn term and what a busy, but exciting term we have planned.
Our topic sessions for this half term are based around the history content of the national curriculum. The children will be studying ancient Greek life and what the Greeks have achieved, including their legacy and influence on the Western world. The children will be drawing upon what they have learned about the ancient Greeks, during our history lessons, to use sketching skills to produce a design, which represents the ancient Greeks, for their own papier mache Greek vase.
Our PE days continue to be on a Monday (outdoor) and Wednesday (indoor).
At Torrisholme, we are continuously striving to develop ways to encourage our children to read for pleasure. We have created a ‘HOT BOOKS’ list of 30 up-to-date, age-appropriate texts, compiled from a range of suggested reading lists. This is not an exhaustive list of fabulous year group appropriate books but is more a fun challenge list for our children to explore texts written in a wide range of styles by a selection of current and popular children’s authors.
How many can your child read?
