Autumn term 2015
Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome back after the summer holidays. We hope you enjoyed the break and your time together. This term our topic will focus on “Is it okay to be scared?”. Children will be learning about feelings, light and dark, adventure stories and woodlands.
Weeks One and Two
We will be talking and writing about our holidays and practising our daily routines. In Maths, we will be focusing on numbers and counting. We will be learning about the story of ‘Jack and the Bean stalk’. In Science, we will be learning to identify plants and animals.
Weeks Three and Four
Children will be finding out about Woodland adventures. We will be exploring the story of ‘Owl Babies’ in Literacy. In Maths, we will be focusing on counting in tens and partitioning numbers. We will be finding out what creatures and animals live in the woods. We will make our own comic strips.
Weeks Five, Six and Seven
Children will be learning about the importance of light in festivals including Diwali, Advent and Hanukkah. We will be exploring writing instructions in Literacy. In Maths, we will be adding and subtracting using number lines and hundred squares to help us if we are using numbers over 10. We will be exploring using different programs to help us communicate in ICT. We will be having a beach adventure! We will be exploring map reading and camping.
P.E. Kits and Clothes
Please can children leave their PE kits on their pegs. All clothes should be labelled. We will continue to have our weekly P.E. sessions. This session will now be on a Wednesday morning. Where possible, children will join their year group for P.E.
If it is raining please make sure your child comes in a waterproof coat.
Thank you for your support,
