Term 1 Learning Journey

Frontiers

"The past is another country: they do things differently there"

LP Hartley

Key Text

Our rich text for "Frontiers" is "The Secret Kingdom"

by Barb Rosenstock.

We are exploring the dramatic life journey of Nek Chand, Indian outdoors artist, through the dramatic times of the separation of India and Pakistan. His refuge from the trauma of war and separation was to create the incredible Rock Garden of Chandigarh, using using reclaimed materials from the city.

We are making a parallel with our own experiences of lockdown, separation and rebuilding connections.

Homework

Homework is set every Friday on Google Classroom and will be due in the following Thursday. The homework folder can be found under the 'Classwork' tab.

There are two sheets for homework:

  • Reading record - please record what you have read and how often you have read on the Google Doc. We encourage children to read at least five times a week either independently (aloud or in their head) or aloud with an adult.

  • Activities - there will be spellings to learn and timetables to practise. In addition to this, there will be either a RIC (reading) or SPAG task.

  • Mangahigh - Children to login and complete the Manga High task set by your teacher. They should aim to complete the task three times. The children's logins can be found on their Google Classroom under 'Classwork'.

  • Lexia - if your child has a Lexia account, please ensure they are accessing this regularly at home. Their login can be found on their Google Classroom under 'Classwork'.

Please do let the class teacher know if you require a paper copy.

We ask that you send in a photo of the work instead of a paper copy to reduce the number of items coming into school.
