Redwood 2021 - 2022
English Subject Leader
Welcome to Redwood Class' learning page. Here you can find relevant information about our learning in school, including: timetables, weekly English and maths homework, as well as daily home learning if you are isolating at home.
Our Autumn 2 topic is called 'Beast Creator', where we will develop our knowledge of living things and their habitats. Throughout the term, we will learn about identification keys, food chains and some of the deadliest beasts on the planet. Alongside the abundance of information, we will also be sharing the book 'Charlotte's Web' by E.B. White.
The first topic covered this year was 'Stargazers' with a science focus on the Solar System. Within the topic, we read our class text 'Cosmic' by Frank Cottrell Boyce. A highlight being the lauch of our rockets at the end of the term! There are many other interesting fiction, non-fiction and poetry books linked to this topic.
