In Phonics, we will be learning new sounds and using our phonics knowledge to read and write.

We will also be reading and writing tricky words.


In maths we are learning positions, number and place value with numbers up to 20, addition and subtraction.

Look at all this super maths we have been doing! 🤩


In Science we will continue to observe the seasons.

In our investigation we will ask simple scientific questions and make observations.

We will also be undertaking two CREST awards, which we are very excited about.


We will be understanding what algorithms are, how they are implemented as programs on digital devices and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions.


We will be describing an historic event that has global significance, very simply - Remembrance and life for children during WW1.

We will learn that our lives are different from people in the past and we will ask questions about the past. We will order and sequence a timeline and use the phrases: 'a long time ago' and 'before I was born'.


In our unit about Christianity, we will be thinking about the question, “Why is Jesus special to Christians?”



This half term we will be discussing a range of topics, including:

*what bullying behaviour is and what to do if we see or experience it.

*how to cross a road safely.

*how feelings can affect people's bodies and how they behave.

*about change and loss.

*how to be healthy and who helps us stay healthy - linked to RRS article 24: every child has the right to the best possible health.



We will be exploring ideas using digital sources and we will use a simple graphics package to create images and effects.

Basic skills: we will be using ballpoint pens to investigate line, shape, tone and texture.


We will be investigating sheet materials. We will fold, tear and cut paper and card. We will roll paper to create tubes. We will cut along straight and curved lines. We will curl paper and use a hole punch. We will insert paper fasteners for card linkages and create hinges. We will use simple pop ups.

We will then use all these skills to help us to design, make and evaluate a pop up card.


We will be using Charanga /YUMU to listen to music, sing with, learn to play music together, compose our own music and perform music together. This unit is called, 'How does music tell stories about the past?’ 

We will listen to a wide range of musical styles and develop our listening, singing, playing, composing and performing skills.


In Gymnastics, we will be travelling, rolling and jumping creating 'straight' and 'tucked' shapes. We will link basic movements together to create a sequence which will be performed using apparatus.
