Autumn Term
This term we are learning about space, forces, and water, through our theme 'A Storm is Brewing...'
During our English lessons, we will be exploring texts which will enrich the children's learning throughout the theme. The books 'A River' and ' The Weather Weaver' will help frame writing opportunities and link learning across the curriculum. 
Our Science focus this term will center around forces and space, this will fall at the heart of our theme. Our History this term will look at Anglo-Saxon and Viking Britain, ad we will be thinking about what life might have been like as an invader coming to Britain. 
In our Art and DT lessons, we will be using our collage and drawing skills to create a water-themed mosaic and explore the design of Viking ship design. 
Key Information
Cedar Class will continue to have 2 PE lessons per week. These will take place on a Monday and a Thursday. Please ensure that your child's PE kit is named and in school at all times. 
Children are expected to be reading at home at least 3 times per week to support their learning. Reading Records need to be handed in on a Thursday. 
Times tables
Children are encouraged to continue using TimesTable Rockstars to practice their times tables each week. They will also be completing one of our 21 Facts activities each morning to support their understanding not only of their times tables, but their relationships between number facts. This will take place during registration.
