Autumn 1

Welcome back after a super summer break!

Here is a run down of everything we will be learning this term!

Theme: Living things - Animals and plants

Our learning this term will be based around animals and plants. We will be looking as a class at Plants, including the parts of a plant, the lifecycle of a plant and what plants need to grow and live. We will then move onto exploring the different animal groups and the range of animals that belong to these groups, before before specifically exploring wild animals and their habitats, which will feed into our learning next term about the book Running Wild.

English: Setting Description and Recount

Our English learning will be based around the book Charlotte's Web, we will explore this novel deeply through drama and other fun learning activities. 

We will develop our writing skills by writing a character description of one of the characters, as well as writing our own fictional adventure from the point of view of one of the characters.

We will also build on our animal and plant knowledge by exploring a range of texts about them during our guided reading lessons.

Maths: Place value, addition and subtraction.

We will start the Year by working on our arithmetic skills through Number and Lightning. We will particularly be focussing on becoming very confident in the addition and subtraction aspect of this, which includes adding and subtracting three digit numbers and using these skills to solve problems.

We will also be focusing on learning our times tables facts, as these will be very important for Maths learning in Key Stage 2.

Science: Plants and animals

We will be looking as a class at Plants, including the parts of a plant, the lifecycle of a plant and what plants need to grow and live. We will carry out a range of practical science enquiries including growing our own plants. We will also be learning about different animal groups and the range of animals that belong to these groups, as well as exploring food chains and animal diets.
