Our Class Novel
Porthill have begun our class novel, James and the Giant Peach. The children have enjoyed listening to a little part of the story each day. They are always excited to hear the next instalment of what happens to James.
Welcome to the Autumn term! We hope you have had an enjoyable and relaxing summer break and that your child is ready for the new school year. This term our will focus on ‘Explorers’. This will begin with a whole school focus on the moon landing. During the rest of the term we will be focusing on finding out about ‘Space’ and learning about the explorers Neil Armstrong and Christopher Columbus.
We will be looking at seasonal changes through a visit to Nesscliffe hill. We have an exciting term to look forward to!
Important Things to Remember:
Please make sure your child practices their reading every day at home, and fill in their reading record.
