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.

This term, Spring 2, has a topic named 'Groundbreaking Greeks'. This historical topic covers the period of Ancient Greece, including: culture, art, literature, democracy, city states, myths, Greek gods, the Olympics and much more. Alongside the non-fiction, we will also be reading, 'Who Let the Gods Out?' by Maz Evans.

During Spring 1, our topic focus was the Medieval era, specifically the Black Death. Our topic title: Peasants, Princes and Pestilence describes the historical impact of the plague. In English, we read the story 'Children of Winter' by Berlie Doherty.

Our Autumn 2 topic was 'Beast Creator', where we developed our knowledge of living things and their habitats. Throughout the term, we learned about identification keys, food chains and some of the deadliest beasts on the planet. Alongside the abundance of information, we shared 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.
