Autumn Term 1

Our 'Story to Tell' this half term is

'The Shopping Basket' by John Burningham. We will learn the meaning of new words like clumsy and hurried. To help your child, please ask them to use these new words in sentences.

We will use this story to write our own in the same style.

We will also be writing recounts of our lives and the changes that have happened so far.



In Maths, we will be learning what the place value of each digit in a two-digit number is. We will use our number bonds to help deepen our understanding of place value.

We will also solve problems involving multiplication and division.


In History, we will sequence the changes that have occurred in our own lives, describing memories of key events.

We will use words including past and present, then and now, before and after.


In Science, we have already begun to identify different animals and plants in habitats including micro-habitats. We have explored our school environment to find some mini-beasts.


As part of our learning in Art, which we have linked to Science, we have been using natural resources to create our own mini beasts.
We have also been learning to fold, tear, cut and crumple paper to create an image of ourselves.

In Computing, we will revisit our learning about the importance of staying safe online, how we need to keep our personal information private and also where to go for help if we are concerned.

As a Rights Respecting School, we will be looking at Article 19: Every child has the right to be protected from harm.


In R.E we will be answering the questions 'How do we respond to things that really matter?' and 'What do special stories teach worshipers and others?'

We will be discussing how we look after natural resources and what we can do as responsible citizens to take care of the world. We will also look at the story of Creation and how Christians celebrate Harvest Festival.

In Music we will be listening to different types of music to appreciate similarities and differences between patterns and rhythms.

In P.E we will be taking part in invasion games. We have begun to develop skills of underarm throwing, catching, dodging and passing. We are excited to play games to be able to apply these skills.
