We have lots of exciting trips planned for this term to enrich our topic - In the Shadow of The Wrekin.
Last week, we explored the Wrekin with the Arthog team. After a challenging walk up a route that the Cornovi tribe might have taken, we sat and enjoyed lunch looking down on our local area.
We found out all about the Corrnovi tribe who inhabited the Wrekin many years ago. Children examined maps to visualise how the tribe entered their settlement and thought about how the entrances were guarded to keep out invaders. We then made our way back down, and then we visited the Wroxeter Roman Village. Here children compared the lives both tribes would have led, thinking about living conditions, food, water and amenities available.
At Short Wood Primary School reading at home is a vital part of our children's education. We are making steps to ensure that all children enjoy reading and it is something that they look forward to.
All children are expected to read at home at least 3 times a week with this being recorded in their reading diaries. If there is evidence of this then the children are rewarded with Class Dojo points.
Our Class Read
This term we are reading Street Child for our class read. It is set in the second half of the 19th century and tells the story of Jim Jarvis. The story follows Jim's search for a home, starting with his family's eviction. Jim meets many characters, some of whom offer support and friendship while others seek to take advantage of him.
