Our Topic this term is Journeys. The children will be looking at different journeys. The children will be looking at religious journeys i.e. pilgrimages, migration and vehicles we use for journeys.
During this term the children will be looking at a range of different non-fiction texts and they will be writing their own class non-fiction book. They will also be writing explanation texts and letters.

Reading at Home
It is an expectation the children read 4 times a week at home.
Please complete your child’s reading journal if they have read at home.
A signature is needed from an adult to show this has been done.
Please also use the Reading Journals to communicate with me - I will read them daily and I am happy to help in anyway.
I aim to make the children’s KS1 journey enjoyable and fun.
Thank you for your continued support. I am very excited and look forward to the new term.
