Spring Term 1

The Boy who could Fly

Our Spring 1 topic is ‘The Boy who could Fly’.


This half term, we will be reading and analysing Sally Gardner’s ‘The Boy who could Fly’. Whilst reading the book, we will complete a range of writing opportunities including a narrative structure. We will use the ‘Talk for Writing’ process to innovate parts of the story and create our own characters.


We will start the new half term by revising basic number work and calculations involving: addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. We will also continue to make a big effort with continuing to learn our times tables.


During the half term, we will be learning and developing new skills in Geography. We will be looking at our local environment and carry out a field study in an urban and rural area. We will be developing our map skills and learn how to use 4 figure grid references and 8 point compass directions.
