Spring Term 1

'Welcome to Harthill Vets!'

In our classroom we have a vets! We have lots of different animals to take care of and are keeping accurate records of all our animals.


In English we are reading 'Diary of a Killer Cat' by Anne Fine. We will be finding out about the antics of Tuffy the cat and following the naughty cats journey through the book.

Autumn Term 2

This term we our core text is 'The Dark' by Lemony Snicket. The story is simple but the writer uses a style of text matched with great illustrations which create suspense and intrigue.

We have linked our guided reading to the theme of 'the dark' using the text 'The Owl Who Was Afraid of The Dark'. We are focussing on answering questions accurately and 'finding the evidence' which backs up our answer. As a class we have taken our learning in the direction of owls and local wildlife which we have been finding out about in science.

Autumn Term 1

This term we are following a pirate theme related to our key text ‘How to Find Gold’ by Viviane Schwarz. The children have brought in some fantastic bits to add to the classroom and are thoroughly enjoying the topic so far.
