Welcome to Saturn Class


Our topic for  Autumn 1 is ' Would you like to live in a castle?'



In Literacy our book focus is 'The Dragon Machine'. We are focusing on using adjectives to describe characters and settings. We have recently designed our own dragon machines. We will also be looking at writing some of our own poems too. 

We are going to be learning a new spelling rule each week, which will enhance our reading and writing skills. Throughout the year we will be learning a set of common exception words, these words are what we aim for children to be able to read and write by the end of the year.


Our first focus in numeracy is 'place value', we will be recapping basic number work, such as ordering numbers, identifying tens and ones in a number, looking for greater than and less than numbers. Children will also get the chance to work practically during our numeracy lessons with concrete and pictorial items. 


We will be looking at everyday materials during our first term, we will be identifying and explaining what materials will be used for. e will also be experimenting the properties of the materials, exploring how and if they change shape. 


 Our topic is all about Castles! We will be labeling and exploring the different parts of a castle. We will think about creating our own menu for a medieval banquet, which we will then have a little one of our own! Children will also be visiting Skipton Castle, to explore and take part in a workshop. 


My door is always open, if you need anything please feel free to speak to me!
