Our work- Autumn Term:


After successfully learning about addition and subtraction last half term, we will, this half term, be learning all about multiplication and division. We will be continuing to practice our 3, 4 and 8 times tables, while trying to gain a deeper understanding of what multiplication and division are.



After writing some great versions of The Croods last term we will be using the skills we learnt in different scenarios this term. We start off by looking at stories set in a familiar setting, by following the adventures of Barney in Stig of the Dump, both the book and the recent television series. We will be looking at diary entries, using Talk for Write and changing the characters and setting in the story. We will then be moving on to an Author study of Raymond Briggs, (The Snowman, Ug, Fungus the Bogeyman, Father Christmas).


Our class books this term are:


  • The One and Only Ivan, about a Gorilla and his friends in a small circus.
  • Stig of the Dump, about a young boy who meets a real-life caveman.

For Harvest festival Zircon class were inspired by the artwork of Giuseppe Arcimboldo and his portraits made using food stuffs.

For Remembrance day we recreated poppy fields using a mixture of colouring pencils, pastels and tissue.
