Literacy  This term the children will be exploring

Literacy This term the children will be exploring the characters and setting of the
Katie Morag stories written by Mairi Hedderwick. They will compare these stories to
the new ones created for the CBeebies programmes and use them to develop their
ideas for writing their own stories based in a familiar setting. The theme will give
lots of writing opportunities across the curriculum and the children will also write a
leaflet to advertise the Isle of Coll in Scotland as a holiday destination, write letters,
postcards, posters to advertise a holiday home on the Isle of Coll. We will have our
role play area as The Post Office similar to the one in the stories, giving the
children lots of speaking, listening and writing opportunities. The children will
continue to be given opportunity to practise and develop their joined handwriting
style. All Y2s will continue to have a daily lesson in phonics. Y3s will be learning
about spelling rules and consolidate how to add suffixes and prefixes to words and
about apostrophes for contraction and possession. They will also learn to recognise
common homophones. Guided Reading activities will continue to take place every
day.
History The children will learn about the first post. They will find
out how the postal system has changed over time and how uniforms
and transport is different. They will find out about the first stamps
and how these have developed over time.
Geography Our Geography work this term will be based around
the Katie Morag stories and the Isle of Struay/Coll. We will study the
human and physical geography of this small area of Scotland and
compare it with Catforth. We will learn to explain what different
places are like; learn about their human and physical features
compare their weather and explain how the lives of people who live
there would be different from our own. We will learn how to use
maps and atlases appropriately by using contents and indexes. We
will learn to:, name the main cities of England, Wales, Scotland and
Ireland.
DT Children will learn about stable structures and explore how
different photo frames stand up. They will experiment with different
techniques and materials and finally they will design their own free
standing frame for Granny Mainland to keep a photo of Katie Morag
in.
RE We will be continuing our focus on Worship and Living the
Faith. This term we will concentrate on the Sikh and Hindu religions.

place and think about what is really important in different religions
and why.
