Geography - We are looking at two areas which are local to us and comparing their physical and human features as well as thinking about what it would be like to live there.

 

R.E. - We begin a new R.E. enquiry where we will learn more about Christianity and be asking, "What was good about Good Friday?"

 

Maths - We start this half term completing our work on multiplication and division, then move onto calculating with money and then do some work on statistics. The recovery part of our maths curriculum will focus on measuring time.

 

English - We start this half term by focusing upon improving our sentences using good adjectives to make our writing more persuasive.

What did we get up to in Autumn 1?

 

 

English

English - We are starting the term by writing super sentences using adjectives and conjunctions. We will be linking into the history topic for the term and will base our writing around the stone age. We will be reading from Stone Age Boy, Dave’s Cave and How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth (do NOT get soap in it’s eyes!).

 

Currently, we are writing sentences using conjunctions such as For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet or So to extend our sentences.  We use the mnemonic FANBOYS to help us to remember these.

Maths

We will start the half-term by looking at number and place value for 4 sessions (order of numbers, greater and less than, recognising and counting in hundreds, tens and ones). We will spend one session per week catching up on the missed curriculum from year 2 - this will include shape, statistics and word problem solving.

R.E.

We begin a new R.E. enquiry where we will learn about the Hindu celebration of Diwali. We will listen to the stories of Hindu children and find out how they gain a sense of belonging from their religion.

History

We are asking "What was life like in the Stone Age?" We will be looking at what tools and food was used, and what life would have been like in the Stone Age.

Children and adults alike kicked off their Stone Age learning journey with a sensational starter day. A visit from a real life Stone Age women called Om. We asked Om lots of questions to understand who she was and how she lived. 

Science

We're asking "How do rocks shape our world?" We want to know about; different rocks and what they are used for; fossils and where they are found; layers of soil and what they are made up from. We will become rock detectives and get stuck in to some experiments.
