Class M

Welcome to our Class page!

I hope you have all had a lovely Summer break and we cannot wait to welcome you all back to school.

Our exiting topic for Autumn term is ‘Bright Lights, Big City’. As part of our learning for this topic we shall be: discovering what happened during ‘The Great Fire of London’, studying maps of the United Kingdom and designing and building models of famous London landmarks.

In English we shall be creating postcards and adventure narratives about an imaginary trip to London using books such as Katie in London, Paddington at the Palace and The Queen’s Knickers!

In Maths we shall be creating a timeline that shows the chronology of events associated with ‘The Great Fire of London’, ensuring to use accurate mathematical vocabulary.

Are you ready for the bright lights of the big city? Hop in a black cab and enjoy the ride!

Reading at home is important, we ask that children read at least four times a week. Please sign and date the Home Learning Diary when you hear your child read. In Class M we have a ‘reading raffle’ each week, children who have read four times are put into the raffle where they may get chosen to select a prize from our golden box.

Weekly spellings

Children have daily phonics sessions in class and will bring home weekly spellings to practise linked to the week’s sounds. These spellings are brought home on a Monday and tested on a Friday. Please remember that Discovery Espresso is available to support phonics learning at home too.


Topic homework 

I may set homework from time to time however, here are some home learning opportunities based around our Autumn Term topic. You can choose which activities to do but it would be great to look at them all throughout Autumn Term. 

Can you make up or learn a song about London? You could use the tune of The Wheels on the Bus but start with ‘I went to the city, and I saw…’


We’d like to find out more about you. If you could go to any city in the world, which city would it be? What would you like to see and do? Maybe you have visited this city before?

Can you design and make a model of London? You could use Lego, junk, modelling clay or anything else you like?


Create a 2D city shape picture of London. Can you label the shape names? What are the properties of the shapes in your picture?

Bright Lights, Big City

Home Learning Ideas


Have a tea party at home with your family or friends. Can you teach your guests some tea party etiquette? Can you speak like the Queen?


Spot and talk about different types of vehicles while you are out and about with your family.


Draw a map of a city and direct a toy car or figure using words such as forwards, backwards, straight ahead, left, right, up, down, under and over. You can use numbers too it you like.

Search the web with an adult to find images of different cities in the world. Create a scrapbook of your favourite cities and include pictures, labels, captions.
