This half term we will be looking at our topic:
‘What was it like when the Queen came to the throne in 1953?’
We will be finding out about the monarchy and the life of Queen Elizabeth II. Children will be looking at what life was like in England at that time and comparing their own daily lives with the lives of children in the 1950s and 1960s. We will also be learning about aspects of the countries that make up the United Kingdom.
If you have older family members who remember what life was like in the 1950s and 1960s it would be great if they could tell your child about what life was like then.
Our class text for this topic will be The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Anderson.
Children have been assigned a book band colour and will have reading group activities in class every day.
Children will also have the opportunity to choose a book to take home each day. It is vital that they practise reading at home everyday with a parent or older sibling listening to and guiding them. Please record in their reading record that they have read at home. For children who are reading a longer book, it is expected that they may need to read the book over a few days.
We are enjoying getting to know our new class and look forward to all the amazing things that the children will achieve this year. Please don’t hesitate to come and speak to us if you have any questions or concerns.
