Welcome to the Autumn term. 

During history and geography lessons, the children will be learning about many different aspects of World War 2, from evacuees and clothing to leaders and countries involved. The children are very welcome to bring in any WW2 artefacts or talk about something interesting they know about the war. 

In Literacy, we will be reading Goodnight Mister Tom and Letters from the Lighthouse. The children will be creating their own poems, recounts, play scrips and a historical fiction story.

In maths, the children will be learning about place value, statistics, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

During PE sessions the children will be developing team skills and coordination skills, through hockey and dance.

Throughout lessons and activities, children will develop their PSHCE and wellbeing knowledge. We will explore personal qualities, internet safety and their contribution to the community. Alongside this, we will be having ‘check ins’ and circle time to discuss feelings and emotions.    

In science, the children will be concentrating on properties and changes of materials. Conducting and evaluating a number of scientific experiments.    

Miss Richardson will be teaching French, focussing on feelings/opinions, school subjects, the city and Christmas. 

Miss Spizer will be teaching ICT, focussing on digital media, programming and control.

Mrs Hamilton will be teaching art, developing drawing and painting skills whilst focussing on a particular artist.

We look forward to working with you and your children this year
