Teamwork - Respect - Aim High
Mrs Webber and Mrs Dickens
Welcome back for an action-packed Autumn term!
How much can we uncover about Ancient Egypt?
This half term, Goldfinch will be reading 'The Firework-Maker's Daughter' by Philip Pullman.
Lila dreams to become a firework-maker, just like her father. In order to become a true firework-maker, she sets off alone on a perilous journey to reach the terrifying Fire-Fiend. She travels through jungles alive with crocodiles, snakes, monkeys and pirates, and climbs up the scolding volcano. On finding the Fire-Fiend, she realises more is at stake than she ever imagined. Will Lila survive? Lila’s is the kind of magical adventure that all children dream of and the gripping story of the fleet-footed heroine will livelong in the memory of anyone who enters her world.
We will look at the poem 'The Quangle Wangle's Hat' by Edward Lear.
In Literacy, we be using the video, 'Tadeo Jones' to inspire some narrative writing.
This half term, the focus will be on place value and addition and subtraction.
