The Titanic! What made the unsinkable ship sink?

 

This half term we will be learning all about The Titanic as part of our Learning Challenge. All of our English lessons will be based around this theme and we will be producing pieces of work to reflect what we have learned.

 

We will create Newspaper reports, persuasive adverts, balanced arguments and letters to name a few!

We are now introducing a new way of doing spellings at Sawley!

The children will learn four spelling rules continuously for four weeks. The children will take part in lots of activities with their classes at school to help them learn the spelling rules. There will be a different spelling list every week using the same rules.
