English – Poetry, instructions and a narrative

Maths – Place Value and Addition

Guided Reading – How to find the meanings of words we don’t know, how to find answers in a text and understanding a characters feelings.

Science – All living things and their habitats

Topic – Where do I live?

Keep popping in to see the exciting things we’re doing!

Rory loves reading and so do we!

A new child has started at Charlestown… Rory the Lion. Rory loves reading but loves it even more when children read to him. We were so excited in Team 3 that we read him, ‘Room on the Broom.’ Highlight, copy and paste the links below into your internet web bar to us read. We have been practicing fluency and expression, can you tell?
