Autumn Term 2021
Welcome back! We hope you had a lovely half term.
We are looking forward to our visit to Herd Farm on the 15th November. Lets hope the weather is kind to us as we will be outdoors!
We have been visiting a Stone Age cave in our classroom and we have made our own cave drawings. How amazing!
This half term in English we will be reading lots of books about the Stone Age and the Romans. Starting with Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamuru. We will be looking at both fiction and non fiction books and we will be writing adventure stories. We are following the Jayne Considine Write Stuff English planning and the children are becoming more familiar with this way of writing.
Children will bring a reading book home and it can be changed on a Friday.
We will be learning about addition and subtraction with 2 and 3 digit numbers in our maths lessons.
We will also be continuing with our school wide push towards increasing times tables fluency so please encourage your child to use Times Tables Rock Stars and work on learning 3x, 4x, and 8x tables off by heart.
We will be continuing learning about the Stone Age, Bronze and Age Iron Age and the influence of the Romans in Britain. We will be visiting Herd Farm to experience what it would have been like in the Stone Age through to the Iron Age.
Our DT topic for this term is linked to our history topic and will involve us designing and making a moving Roman chariot.
Our P.E. days are Monday and Most Wednesdays, we will be having archery sessions on a Monday. Children will need to come in footwear and black jogging bottoms appropriate for outdoor P.E on our Wednesday session. We will also be making use of the Running Track on a regular basis.
Homework will be sent home on Friday each week. Please return the homework by the following Wednesday to allow for work to be marked. Spellings will be on a Friday.
Please check planners for weekly spellings. They will be sent home on Friday to be tested the following Friday.
How can you help your child at home?
Please read with your child as often as possible. Ask questions about the plot, characters and what they think will happen.
