Autumn Term 1 -


In writing lessons we will be learning the story of The Three Little Pigs and will use this as a stimulus for our writing. In grammar lessons we will be learning how to write a series of sentences correctly, using capital letters and full stops. We will also be learning about nouns, adjectives and verbs. At the end of the half term we will write apology letters from the wolf to the pigs.

In Science we will be learning about living things and what they need to survive. We will then look at life cycles of humans and other animals. We will also learn about different types of food and how to stay healthy.

Our Geography focus will be on maps and route planning. We will learn how to draw from a birds eye view and plan routes to and from known routes in our local area. We will also learn how to use a key to represent landmarks.

We are very lucky this half term as we will have artists working with the class every week. We will be learning about different painting techniques. In DT we will learn about healthy food and make fruit salads.

 In Music, we will learn about pulse, rhythm and tempo. We will use drums to help us to play a steady beat and different rhythms. We will also begin to learn how to read musical notation.
