Autumn 1 Curriculum Letter

This is a brief overview of what we will be learning this half term. 

English

 

In English, we choose specific themed texts to read with the children to support them to develop their skills when writing short stories, recounts, letters, instructions, and much more.

This term begins with a transition unit using a book called ‘My Mum and Dad Make me Laugh’ written by Nick Sharratt. After this, we will be reading the book ‘The Secret Sky Garden’ written by Linda Sara and Fiona Lumbers and 'Up With Birds!' written by John Yeomen and Quentin Blake. This book has been chosen to go with our flight-themed unit of work for autumn term one.

Reading

Please read with your child for five to ten minutes fives times a week.  Use the reading VIPERS below to support questioning.  Questioning when reading with your child is fundamental at this stage in their reading development to help them develop their comprehension skills as your children become more able to read fluently.

We will be reading with your child 1:1 every week. We will also be having a daily guided reading whole class session.

Science

In science, we will be investigating ‘Materials'. 

Homework

Homework will be set on Friday and then due in on the following Friday.  Homework can be found on our Google Classroom.

Maths

 

We will set maths homework on Mathletics and may send home some additional work if we feel that it is required. 

When counting or practising times tables with your children at home, please remember to count forwards AND backwards. This is vital to their knowledge and understanding of number patterns.

Below are maths mats that show some of the objectives your child will be learning in school.  You might find them useful when working with your child at home.

Topic

In Topic we will be focusing on the history of 'Flight' by focusing on the Wright Brothers and Amy Johnsonn.
