Homework will be given out on Mondays and to be returned the following Monday.
Spellings will be given out on Monday with a spelling check on a Friday.
The children will be given their reading books to read to an adult at home. Please sign their reading logs and add a comment if you wish.
Our topic this term will be the Moon Landing.
We will be learning about this historical event from 1969 and will learn about the astronauts who ventured to the Moon.
Does anyone if your family remember this event?
We will learn to sequence events and about the hazards the crew had to face. We will investigate why the astronauts risked their lives to visit the Moon. We will be using different sources to research the event and what the astronauts did when they got there. In Year 2 we will debate whether we should go to the Moon and into space and discuss the pros and cons. Finally we will think about how to commemorate the event with the 50th anniversary approaching.
You may want to start your research so here are some websites you may find useful.
In addition to this topic we will be learning about Remembrance Day. We will learn about why poppies are worn and why this event is remembered in the second week of November.
