Autumn Term 2018

This term our topic is Our Victorian School. We have chosen this to celebrate our 160th anniversary year of the building of Bosley St Mary's School.  We using our extensive archive and current publications to inspire our writing.  This topic will cover both aspects and our local geography.  We have begun the topic by finding out about what school was like for a Victorian child and how children worked until the Education Acts in the mid 1800s introduced universal education for poorer children.

We will look at several genres of writing as well as enjoying numerous non-fiction and fiction books.  We will explore through drama and art different experiences of Victorian school-life. 

We use a mastery approach to mathematics which allows the children to experience numbers through practical equipment, showing what they have learnt visually and finally showing their understanding through formal written methods.  This term we will look closely to understand the value of numbers (place value), addition and subtraction, estimation and partitioning.  Towards the end of the term will look at shape, space and measures.

In science we will explore the world around us and our part it. We will observe the changing seasons, ready to revisit our learning later in the year.  We will also look at living things and their habitats, focusing on the interesting micro-habitats in and around our school.

In RE we will start with our Harvest celebration before thinking about the special ways that Christians welcome their babies.  We will talk about the Bible and particularly the lessons that Jesus taught us through parables.

PE will be every Wednesday afternoon and it is important that children have their named PE kits in school at all times.

Spellings will commence later in the term and this page will be updated with the spelling week.

We strongly encourage all parents/carers to read daily with your child.  This is proven to greatly aid their learning throughout their whole school career.  Every child will have a daily session of phonics and guided reading.

Parents of children in Reception can see daily updates on their child's progress through the Tapestry app.  Please speak to one of us if you need help with this.

We are available on the days we work with the children from 3:15pm if you wish to discuss an aspect of your child's learning.  Alternatively, you can make an appointment through the school office.
