Autumn 1

Welcome back after a super summer break!

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

Theme: 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 be linking this closely throughout all of our learning, including our English and our Science. We will carry out a range of practical science enquiries including growing our own plants and disecting plants.

English: Setting Description and Recount

We will be starting by looking at descriptive writing, thinking about all of the things we need to add to writing to make it detailed and descriptive.

We will then be looking at instruction writing and how we can give clear instructions with the use of verbs and adverbs.

We will also extend our plant knowledge by exploring a range of texts about them during our guided reading lessons.

Maths: Numbers to 100 and Addition & Subtraction.

We will start the Year by working on our arithmetic skills through the number and lightning. We will particularly be focussing on the addition and subtraction aspect of this, which includes adding and subtracting three digit numbers and using these skills to solve word problems.
