Here is a quick insight into the type of things that we will be learning about during Autumn 1:

Literacy - This half term, we are basing all of our Literacy work around the topic 'Superheros' and we will be looking at the following texts; ‘Supertato’ by Sue Hendra, ‘Eliot midnight superhero’ by Anne Collringer, and ‘Superkid’ by Claire Freeman. We will start with text ‘Supertato’ and will be exploring interesting vocabulary to write a character description. We will be looking at writing a set of instruction when we read ‘Eliot midnight superhero’ and we will be writing our own story using a story map when we read ‘Superkid’. We will begin to cover the year 1 writing objectives, focusing on sentence writing and including punctuation.

Phonics and Reading – Within phonics we will begin by learning the phase 5 sounds as well as recapping the sounds we learnt in phase 3. We will continue to practise blending words with the new sounds for reading and segmenting the sounds for writing. Within our reading sessions we will continue to practise our blending skills as well reading the common exception words within the book, and exploring the meaning of new vocabulary, predicting what might happen in the text and discussing what is happening in the story as well as relating this to our own experiences and ideas.

Numeracy - During Autumn 1, we will be focusing on 'Number' which will include looking at: place value, addition and subtraction. We will also be exploring some ‘Geometry’ which will include looking at naming and describing the properties of 2D and 3D shapes.

Science – ‘Materials’ is this half term's topic. Within this topic we will be naming everyday materials and exploring the different properties of the materials we identify. We will then investigate these properties further to compare and group the materials.

History and Geography - Our topic this half term is ‘Superheroes’ and our big question is ‘How can we help others?'. Within this topic we will explore real life heroes in our history who helped others and we will be learning about Florence Nightingale.

Religious Education - Over Autumn 1, our topics will be 'Families' and ‘Belonging'. Within the first topic, we will look at who is part of our own families, how families are different and how God loves all of us. Within our second topic, we will explore listening to the word of God and Gods family.

Art and Design- Our topic this half term is ‘Superheroes’ and we will be exploring the type art we see in superhero comic books. We will be learning about the style ‘Pop Art’ and looking at the work of Roy Lichtenstien. We will also be designing our own superhero cape and exploring the choice of materials linking to our science topic.

Here is a quick insight into the type of things that we will be learning about during Autumn 2:

Literacy - This half term, we are basing all of our Literacy work around the topic 'Fairy tales' and we will be looking at the following texts; ‘Hansel and Gretel’ by Antony Browne and ‘The great fairy tale disaster’ by David Conway. We will start with the text ‘Hansel and Gretel’, we will be exploring interesting vocabulary, making inferences and go on to write a recount of the story. When we read the text ‘The great fairy tale disaster’, we will be sequencing events in the story, discussing and using key features of a narrative, planning a re-tell of the story and writing a re-tell of the story.

 

We will continue to cover the year 1 writing objectives, focusing on sentence writing and including punctuation.

Phonics and Reading – Within phonics we will be continuing to learn phase 5 sounds, including split diagraphs, and we will also be learning the alternative spellings for the sounds we have learnt so far. We will continue to practise blending words with the new sounds for reading and segmenting the sounds for writing. Within our reading sessions we will continue to practise our blending skills as well reading the common exception words within the book. We will be exploring the meaning of new vocabulary, predicting what might happen in the text and discussing what is happening in the story as well as relating this to our own experiences and ideas.

Numeracy - During Autumn 2, we will be focusing on 'Number' which will include looking at: place value, addition and subtraction. We will also be exploring some ‘Geometry’ which will include looking at naming and describing the properties of 2D and 3D shapes.

Science – ‘Plants’ is this half term's topic. Within this topic we will be naming a variety of common and wild plants. We will investigate types of fruits and vegetables we find in gardens as well as investigating what these look like when we cut and chop them. We will go on to understand the role that pollen plays in the growing of fruits and vegetables.

History and Geography - Our topic this half term is ‘Fairy tales’ and our big question is ‘How can we see the good in everybody?'. Within this topic we will explore the idea of good and bad characters and link this to history by learning about Mother Teresa and how she was someone who did a lot of good to help others. In geography we will use simple compass directions (North, South, East and West) and locational and directional language [for example, near and far; left and right], to describe the location of features and routes on a map. We will also use aerial photographs and plan perspectives to recognise landmarks and basic human and physical features; devise a simple map; and use and construct basic symbols in a key

Religious Education - Over Autumn 2, our topics will be ‘Belonging'. Within this topic, we will explore listening to the word of God and Gods family.

Art and Design- Our science topic this half term is ‘Plants’, we will be developing our drawing and painting skills, we will making close observations of different types of plants and flowers and drawing them with detail as well as painting them using watercolours. We will also be creating pollen sculptures using clay.
