Autumn Term 2021

Welcome back! We hope that you have all enjoyed your summer holidays! We are so excited to get this new term underway and have lots of fun activities planned for you all.

Our topic for this term is ‘Fit for Life’. As part of this topic the children will be taught two science units ‘Movement and Feeding’ and ‘Human Nutrition’. They will learn about the right types of nutrition for all animals and what makes a balanced diet. The children will develop their understanding personal health and investigate the simple functions and parts of the digestive system. We will also be exploring 'food around the world'  and looking at where it comes from and how it gets onto our breakfast tables!  



First of all, we will be reading and exploring the book  'Seal Surfer’ by Michael Foreman and following the Pathways to Write unit. Alongside this, we will be reading ‘The Sea book’ by Charlotte Milner. We will continue with our whole class reading sessions where we will really push our reading skills. In the second half term, we will reading 'Winter's Child' by Angela McAllister as well as 'Ice Palace' by Robert Swindells. 

Here is the overview of books we will be reading as a stimulus for our English lessons:

Maths: Our first focus will be on place value where the children will be learning how to read and write numbers in words and numerals, compare and order numbers, find more or less than a given number and count in multiples of 50 and 100. We will then move on to addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They will use mental and written methods to answer calculations, solve problems in involving the four number operations and use money in practical contexts. Then finally, the children will focus on measurement. They will learn how to measure length in m, cm and mm and compare lengths, solve problems and measure the perimeter of 2D shapes. The children will also continually work on times tables – your support with this is much appreciated!

Don't forget to practise, practise and practise those times tables!
