This term we will be starting with a recount of our Easter holidays. Following this we will be looking at the story of 'The Little Red Hen.' We will be thinking about the structure of the story and looking at how we can change parts of it to make our own version. We will be looking at speech and how characters talk in a story. We will be using small world, story sacks and puppets to help us with this.
In maths, we will be looking at place value to 20,50 and 100. We will be looking at numbers and how many tens and ones make up each two digit number.
In PE we will be exploring dance as a way of expressing the different changing seasons and listening to different pieces of music and adapting our dance styles and expressions accordingly. Outdoor PE will continue with learning about invasion games, including tag rugby, hockey and small netball teams.
What we are learning - Autumn term 2
In class, we are currently reading the text' Marvellous Me' by Lisa Bullard. We are going to be writing our own books based on our personalities, likes and dislikes and using descriptive sentences to describe what we look like.. In Maths, we are learning about 2D and 3D shape and for our vehicle, we are learning about and celebrating Bradley Barton turning 40 year old! Please look at our vehicle journey for further details.
In PE, we are learning ball skills with Mr Knott on a Thursday and Fundamental skills and yoga with Mrs Hammond on a Monday. We visit the library to collect a book every Friday afternoon.
We complete phonics, spelling, handwriting, reading, PSHE and mindfulness activities on a daily basis.
We will be following our successful 'Talk for Writing' programme, whereby the children will learn the language and actions of the story, so that they can get to know the story really well and retell it to others. As a class, we will change one aspect of the story and then the children will invent their own.
