Overview of Autumn 1

 

Mathematics

This academic year we are using a scheme called 'Power Maths' which develops mastery of mathematical strategies and understanding. This half-term we are focusing on place-value up to four-digit numbers. and times-tables and division facts.

 

 

English

Narrative writing based on the book 'William and the missing masterpiece'. Particularly, the use of inverted commas and the four sentence types within the children's writing. In addition to this, children will be learning spellings using a new spelling scheme, and will be developing their handwriting frequently.

 


 

Science

Focus on 'changes of state': looking at solids, liquids and gases and the various stages they go through.

 

Topic

Ancient Egypt, this topic will explore the fascinating lives of the Egyptians and will also include elements of geography and history as we move through the term.

 

P.E

Children will be learning about 'Invasion Games' and developing the skills that enable teams and individuals to be successful when participating in them, with a particular focus on the principles of attacking and defending!

 

R.E 

This half term the children will be looking at the religious beliefs of Hindus, as well as discussing things that are important in their own lives.

 

My Happy Mind

This scheme has a focus on promoting children's well-being and provides them with strategies to deal with stress, and worries that occur in their everyday lives. Children will also learn about how their brain works and develop their understanding of neuroscience!

Music

Mrs Green will lead children this year during music lessons, and over the course of this term will be engaging the children by sharing the infectious beats of Africa!

 

ICT

This term children will be using the program 'garage band' to create their own music and designs!

 

Art

Linked to our Ancient Egyptian topic, children will have opportunities to design, make and create a range of artistic materials.
