Welcome to Autumn term!
We are so excited to have you all back and hope you are ready to throw yourself into a new year and learn lots of exciting new things!
This term for English we will be studying the text ‘Look Up!’ by Nathan Byron. A story about a little girl called Rocket who dreams of becoming an astronaut. Bursting with energy and passion about science, Rocket wants to convince her brother to stop looking down at his phone and start looking up at the stars! The children will be immersed in role play developing a range if rich of vocabulary and have the opportunity to hot seat each other as different characters. They will be learning all about sentence structure by writing short sentences in meaningful contexts and applying their phonetic knowledge too. They will have opportunities to continue their learning throughout continuous provision too including writing facts about space and constructing their own sentences about Rocket. We will be focusing the children being aware of using capital letters, finger spaces and full stops in their writing too.
In maths, we will be kick starting the year off by looking at place value to 10. Here, the children will learn about sorting and counting objects to 10, understanding one more and one less of a number and comparing and ordering groups of objects. They will have the opportunity to be hands on with lots practical work and work in groups. After this we will then move on to addition and subtraction to 10 for the last few weeks. Here, we will be focusing on the addition and subtraction symbols and using them in a part whole model. We will then move on to number bonds to 10 in which the children will be able to again be hands on with lots of practical work including outdoor learning.
Our theme for the first couple of weeks is ‘Keep Believing!’ We will be doing lots of lovely activities to ease the children back into school after being away for such a long time. We understand that coming back to school may be different and draw various emotions for your children therefore we will be doing lots of PSHE lessons and activities including managing worries, fears and anxieties, how to be positive and look forward to learning and looking at gratitude and appreciation.
WTL- For our first few weeks of religious education, we will be looking at the topic ‘God’s Great Plan’ in which the children will learn all about how God created the world in seven days. They will learn about each day and why they are important. Moving on, they will learn all about Noah and the great flood. They will have the opportunity to do some role play and drama to re-tell the story and make puppets to do a puppet show!
