Autumn Term 2018

 

Welcome back! We hope you all had a wonderful half term break! 

 

It is now Autumn Term 2. This half term our topic is 'The Great Fire of London'

In Literacy this term  we will focus on the story of Nibbles, a very naughty monster who loves to nibble books! The children will be absorbed in the text through a range of writing opportunities, resulting in the children writing their very own version of the story and creating their own book nibbling monster. We will continue to work hard remembering all the things we need to be a good writer e.g capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. We will also look at using the conjunction ‘and’ to join two clause and even begin to focus on adding –s or –es to words to make them a plural.

 

In Maths this half term we will be looking at 2D and 3D shapes. The children will revise the names and learn the properties of different shapes. We will also look for them in real life contexts around us. We will continue our number work focus moving into combing different quantities, amounts and numbers. We will look closely at the addition and subtraction symbols and what these mean. The children will explore these concepts using concrete resources such as cubes, objects and counters.

 

In Science we will continue our topic focus on Humans. The children will identify, name, draw and label the basic parts of the human body and say which part of the body is associated with each sense. We shall also continue learn about the changing natural world around us. Focusing on the seasons changing from autumn to winter. We will discuss how the weather, plants and daylight are all affected.

 

In History this term we will look at two important historical events in British history beyond living memory. The Great Fire of London and Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder plot.

 

In DT this term we will put our design skills to the test whilst we design and make our very own cage to stop Nibbles the monster escaping! We will be exploring lots of different cutting and joining techniques through junk modelling.

 

Read Write Inc. sessions will continue to develop the children’s reading skills as they learn their sounds, segmenting and blending whilst also developing their comprehension skills. If you would like to help your child to practise their phonic knowledge for reading at home, then follow the link www.ruthmiskin.com for more information.
