In our English lessons, we will be focusing on retelling key events within stories.
We will be looking at the following books to support our writing; Voices in the Park, Jim and the beanstalk, Zog, Giraffes can’t dance, Gorilla, Flotsam and Once in a lifetime.
Children will focus on the presentation of work specifically, handwriting, leaving spaces between words and letter formation. The skill that we will begin to focus on using and embedding within our retells will be to include a range of time adverbials correctly (First, Next, Then, After that, Finally).
Children will also be asked to consider using conjunctions to extend their writing and use adjectives to make their writing exciting.
In our maths lessons we will be looking at a variety of mathematical topics whilst using concrete, pictorial and abstract representations to further develop our learning. Our topics may change depending upon our assessments of the children's knowledge and needs.
Children may benefit from accessing Times Tables Rock Stars at home to further improve their fluency with their times tables.
Our curriculum topic for Autumn is the Stone Age to the Iron Age. We will be looking to answer the big question “How did life change from Stone Age to Iron Age?"
In Geography and History, we will be looking at how life changed from the Stone Age to Iron Age using timelines, how food was gathered, farming and their homes. We will also look at Stonehenge and Skara Brae.
Children will have the opportunity to use our virtual reality headsets to explore a range of artefacts and settlements from this time period.
Our science topic for Autumn is animals including humans. We will be looking to answer the big question "What's under our skin?"
In this unit children will understand that plants and animals obtain food in different ways, identify the right types of nutrition needed in a healthy diet, name different skeleton types, identify the main bones in the body and their uses, and explain how muscles work together to enable movement.
