Autumn 2 Topic

Sticks and Stones

This is a history based topic, looking at life in The Stone Age!

 

ENGLISH

This half-term, we will base lots of our English work on the book, 'Stone Age Boy', linked to our history topic.

Children will also complete spelling and grammar lessons, comprehension, handwriting and guided reading sessions during the week.

Spellings

We will send home spellings every Monday to be learnt and practised at home for a test on the following FRIDAY. The spellings can be found in the back of the children's reading diaries. Children will highlight the words they got right, and still need to keep practising ones they got wrong, as well as learning their new spellings too.

Here are some spelling and reading activities that you can try at home throughout the year:

 Reading

  • Read as much as you can!  Read your class book, magazines, newspapers, books at home!
