The Big Question ?
We will be continuing with the Big Question this
year, linking all the subjects around one topic. Our
first Big Question is ‘How did evacuation affect the
lives of children from Chorlton Park during WW2?’
Throughout the year we will be having ‘Themed
Days’ where the children have the opportunity to
reflect on what they have learnt.
Parents will be invited to come along and join in with
the days activities so watch out for information.
•Reading – every night.
•Maths and Literacy/ topic:
Maths – given out every week on a Tuesday to be
handed in on a Friday.
Literacy/Topic - given out at the beginning of term

We will ask the children to get a parent/ carer to sign their
learning log each weekend so we know that they are sharing them

learning and that you find it a useful tool to spark discussions
with your child about what they are learning about in school.
We are proud of how our children look.
