Spruce Class

Welcome back to school and to Spruce Class!


This year our teacher is Miss Churchouse and our teaching assistant is Miss Riley.


In English this term, our first unit will be on the text ‘The Butterfly Lion’ by Michael Morpurgo. We will be focusing on writing diary entries, letters, descriptions and writing a non-fiction report. Our second unit will be based on the poem ‘The Highwayman’ by Alfred Noyes. In this unit, we will also explore the works of other famous poets and write an imagery poem based on the sea. The children will also have the opportunity to perform their own compositions.


Our Area of Study this term is the Anglo-Saxons, where we will explore who they were and where they came from, as well as the reasons behind their arrival in Britain. 


In Science this term, we are learning about materials and their properties and developing our skills of investigation.


There will be a focus on reading this term with the expectation that children read every night. We encourage children to read to an adult so that questions can be asked about the text, plot and characters discussed.
