Autumn 1 Under the Sea

In Autumn 1, we have been looking at all things ‘Under the Sea’.


In English, we read ‘Why the Whales Came’ by Michael Morpurgo.

We wrote character descriptions of the ‘Birdman’, a mysterious, reclusive man who lived on small island. Can your child describe the Birdman to you?

We also wrote our own poems based on ‘The Sea’ by James Reeve. We included rhyme, rhythm and personification.

In science, we learnt about food chains and animal classification.

This half term, in maths, we have been building on and consolidating our addition and subtraction skills by reasoning and problem solving.
