Red 2

Spring 1

What will Home-School Learning look like in Red 2?

This term we are working on ‘Why do we have cities?’ in Geography, comparing two cities in History and writing some non-fiction ‘All about Newcastle’. If parents could visit Newcastle city centre with their child that would greatly enhance their learning. Talk about the various landmarks – train station, castle, football stadium, bridges, river Tyne, shopping centre – and how they make Newcastle so special.

Each week your child will have a reading book and spellings sent home. Please encourage your child to read the story with you, talk about it and practise their spellings.

How can you share your child’s home-school learning with us?

  • Post any photos of your visit to Newcastle on seesaw for us to share in class.
  • Write a comment in the reading record.
