Our topic this term is: Back to the Future!
Key concepts being taught this term:
Literacy - We will begin this term by writing a fiction piece in the style of a voyage and return story. The Paper Dolls by Julia Donaldson and Rebecca Cobb will inspire the children to imagine their very own story which ends at the beginning.
Numeracy - This term the children will cover a variety of concepts within numeracy including: Roman numerals, place value, addition and subtraction, measurement and multiplication and division. Beat Your Score sheets will also be regularly uploaded to support home learning.
Science - Electricity and sound are the two key concepts we will focus on during the Autumn term. Throughout their learning, the children will work scientifically to expand their understanding and to challenge predictions they have made.
History - This term, the children will learn about the lifestyle and society of the Anglo Saxons. This topic allows the children to immerse themselves within this era during a highly interactive and authentic workshop with a Roman soldier.

P.S.H.E. - Personal, social and health education (PSHE) helps to give children the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy and independent lives. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.
Our P.E. days are on: Tuesday (indoor) and Thursday (outdoor).
Homework is given out on Friday and is due in on the following Thursday.
