Autumn Term 2022
This half term will see us gradually start to increase the time children spend in adult-led activities and independent learning tasks. The time to learn through play will gradually reduce so the children are ready for the change in structure in January.
Our class topic is 'Toys through Time'.
In English, we will be using the text 'Nibbles The Book Monster'. We will be predicting what will happen in the story, talking about the characters and how they feel at different points in the story. We will practise sequencing and retelling the story before writing a diary entry as Nibbles.
In Maths, we will focus on place value to 10 and extend this to 20. The children will also learn different strategies to add and subtract within 10 and then 20. Later in the term we will learn about 2D and 3D shapes.
In Religious Education, our topic is ‘Mary our Mother’. We will learn about Mary’s characteristics and how she was chosen to be Jesus’ Mother. We will learn about the nativity story in readiness for our play.
In Science, our topic is ‘Materials’. We will learn to name different materials and talk about why objects are made from that particular material. We also explore floating and sinking.
We also have lots more exciting learning planned in PE, Forest School, Music, Art and Computing.
PE, our PE days are Thursday and Friday.
Children should come to school wearing their PE kit. All earrings should be removed before the PE lesson, if your child is unable to remove their earrings independently, they must be removed before school.
