Autumn Term

As readers, we will use a variety of texts from the school reading spine. We will compare traditional tales with more modern equivalents and take different aspects of the tales to explore in greater depth, such as the bears from Goldilocks.

As writers, we will write a character and setting description related to Three Billy Goats Gruff. We will retell the story of Cinderella, write a letter related to Goldilocks and the Three Bears, a recount of our walk in Broughton Woods and a free-verse poem.

As mathematicians, we will learn about place value within 100 and this will include counting in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s. We will also learn about addition and subtration within 100 and further develop our knowledge of 2d and 3d shapes by recognising their properties.

As scientists, we will identify the habitats of different animals as well as look at how they obtain their food.

As geographers, we are learning about the wider environment around our school and the town of Broughton. We will take a walk around our local environment and plan a route back to the school to follow. Children will make a simple map and construct basic symbols in a key to organise their information. Children will be able to identify key human and physical features within the school grounds and the surrounding environment.

As sports people, we will further develop on our ABC work and apply them in games scenarios. Outside we will be starting to learn about some invasion games and understand the competitive side to sport.

As theologians, we will learn key beliefs in Islam and the straight path, how Muslims live their life through the 5 pillars and how Muslims strive to share what they have and keep harmony. We will learn about the life journeys in Islam, the importance of community and working together as a Muslim, and how the birth of a new baby into the Muslim faith is celebrated.

As computer users, we will identify pieces of personal information and know what to do if we find inappropriate content online. Also, we will begin to find information online using links to access them.

As artists, we will continue to develop our pencil skills and produce patterns. We will look at the different types of pencils and investigate their strength (light/dark). We will then apply this pattering to learn how to use an ink pen. We will study the work of the artist, Paul Klee and link these skills when creating pieces similar to his.

As citizens, in PSHE, we will learn about feelings and emotions, resilience and perseverance, relationships, caring for others and bullying.

As musicians, we will explore how music is used to help tell stories, through songs and through our listening. We will learn how to tell the difference between pulse, beat and rhythm. We will work towards Harvest and Christmas performances.

As historians, we will be learning sequencing and chronology. We will learn about buildings in the past and present in Britain and in our local area of Broughton. This unit of work will include a visit round Broughton, making obseravtions of old and new buildings and a visit to St Mary's Church to meet the Rector, David Eames to learn about the history of the church.

As designers, we will plan and create a puppet based on our favourite traditional tale. We will review, improve and evaluate our finished product. In food technology we will explore flapjack. We will investigate how to make flapjack, create a specification, make and evaluate our finished product.
