Welcome to Otters class!

Spring 1:

English: Please do not read the books ahead of time as we enjoy discovering them together!

The Dragon Machine-Helen Ward Jill Tomlinson, a highly-imaginative tale along the lines of Where The WIld Things Are. The Dragonsitter Disasters- Josh Lacey

Focus: understanding a sentence needs a capital letter at the start, a subject and a verb (usually) and the full stop goes at the end of the idea. 

         : writing a narrative in the past using the first person ('I'); consider the use of conjunctions and starting to build an awareness of paragraphs.


Number: multiplication and division

Geometry: revising the properties of 2D and 3D shapes

Religious Education:

Christianity - We will be exploring the following 'Big Questions'

Why is the Bible a special book for Christians?

In Worship, we are learning about Joseph and how God's light saved him in his darkest hour. We will be reflecting on how giving our trust to God will bring our own light to shine. 


Uses of everyday materials: Why do we use different materials for different jobs? How to describe different materials.

History and Geography:

Events beyond living memory: The Great FIre of London 1666 - how, when, why it started and how it was stopped. Compare and contrast with The Great Fire of Nantwich 1583.

Art and Design: 

Illustrating part of the Great FIre of London


Invasion games
