Welcome to

Great Casterton CE Primary School

Autumn Term 2 2021

Our topic this term is called Heroes. We are going to be thinking about what makes a hero, and who some of our heroes might be. In history we will be learning about Remembrance and why we wear poppies. Our science learning is all about  materials. You can find out more by looking at our knowledge organiser and the parents overview for the term.

Year 1 children will continue with daily phonics lessons (phase 5) and will also be working on spellings for this term's spelling challenge. There is a copy below if you need it. Year 2 will continue to work on their weekly spellings linked to our Oxford Owl spelling scheme. 

We will be working very hard on our Nativity with EYFS, and fingers crossed we will be performing that to parents this year.

Don't forget on Thursday 4th November at 3.30 Mrs Hughes and I will be talking about phonics and hopefully increasing your understanding of how it is taught in our school.
