This term we will be learning.....


Phonics - We will be starting our new phonics scheme, Little Wandle and we will continue to have our daily phonics sessions using this scheme. We will be recapping phase 4 and learning our phase 5 sounds and then grouping all the sounds we have learnt into families. We will continue to practise reading and spelling our tricky words. 


English - We will be sharing texts linked to an 'Autumn' theme including poetry and stories such as 'Tidy' before half term and after half term, we will be sharing stories about animals. We will continue to practise writing sentences independently and enaure the children are using full stops and capital letters. We will also continue to look at describing words within the texts we share and practise using them in our writing. The children will write their own poems and stories and practise reading them out loud to their class mates.


Maths -  We will concentrate on practising place value and counting using a range of equipment including base ten, bead strings and arrow cards. We will also practise addition and subtraction. We will apply our number knowledge when we measure length, weight and volume. We will also investigate a range of 2D and 3D shapes.

Science: We will learn the names of different body parts and the 5 senses.

History: We will be learning about the different stages of life and where we fit in our family tree.

Computing: We will learn basic computer skills that will successfully help us to design a Christmas card.

Religion: We will learn about baptisms in the Christian Church.

Music: We will use charanga to learn different songs and to differentiate between the rhythm and beat.

PSHE: Our theme is 'Going for Goals' in which the children learn that everybody learns in different ways.
