Autumn Term 2021

 

Please read below to find out what we are learning about this term.

RE

In RE this term we learn about characters such as Noah and Jonah in the Old Testament in our first unit.  Then we move onto the life of Mary and Jesus and the call of the disciples and hear about saints who have responded to the call of Jesus.  Finally, in the Advent unit, we focus on the preparation for Christmas through the story of John the Baptist.

 

English

 

We have started off the term reading and performing repetitive poems and songs, we have even had a go at writing some of our own.  Later on in the term we will be writing letters and instructions before looking at traditional tales from a range of cultures.

 

Maths

In Maths we have recapped our knowledge of numbers to 100, deepening our understanding of place value and the range of ways these numbers can be partitioned.  We have also been practising counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and have learnt how to count in 3s.  We will then move onto adding and subtracting with numbers up to 100.

 

Science

In Science we are learning about humans and animals and what they need to stay alive and how we change as we grow.  Later in the term we will learn about healthy eating.

History

In History we are learning about a significant person from history, Walter Tull and why we still remember him today. This will lead us into finding out about what we remember on Remembrance Day.

Geography

Geography is the focus of our Vehicle this term.  We are learning in depth about the continents and oceans – how they are similar and different in terms of population, geographical features and climate, traditions and culture and the animals that live there.  This will be enhanced by a trip to Peak Wildlife Park in October so that we can identify the continents the different animals originate from.  Finally, we will lead a performance about Christmas around the world as part of our Christmas celebrations.

 

Art

Our Art is based on the work of Vincent Van Gogh.  We will explore his works of art and experiment working in his style, working towards painting a self-portrait inspired by his works.

 

D&T

We are learning about the celebrity chef, Jamie Oliver and learning how to chop and prepare fruit and vegetables.  We will then make connections to our Geographical knowledge by designing and making a ‘World Wrap’ which may even appear on our school dinner menu.
