Our Curriculum:


Autumn Term 1:

Over the next few weeks we are going to be learning lots of very exciting things! Here are some of the main topics which we will be focusing on:


English: In English we are going to be looking at characters and writing character descriptions using descriptive language. We will be looking at how stories are written and writing our own stories. We will look at writing letters and postcards.  We will be basing our writing on the story 'Man on the Moon: A Day in the Life of Bob’ by Simon Bartram.

Maths: We are going to be looking at numbers and place value. We will be working on addition and subtraction.

Science: We will be learning about animals including humans, where they live and what they need to stay alive. We will be finding out what an experiment is and how we can conduct one.

History: We will be learning about Florence Nightingale and why she was important.

Geography: We will be learning to name and locate the world’s seven continents and five oceans. We will be looking at maps and atlases.


In addition to all these exciting things we will be doing PE, Music, PSHE, RE and Art!


Autumn Term 2:

English: This half term we are basing our Literacy work on the book 'The disgusting sandwich'. We will be writing instructions for how to make a sandwich, ordering and retelling the story and then writing our own version of the ending. We will also be looking at how we can use expanded noun phrases to add detail to our descriptions. 

Towards Christmas we will be working on poetry and writing our own winter poems. 

Maths: For Maths we will be continuing to look at addition. We will be using our number bonds to 10 to help us to calculate. We will then be looking at how we can add and subtract when a number goes across a 10. Another maths focus this half term is shape so we will be naming shapes and describing and comparing their properties. 

Science: In science we will continue to learn about animals including humans. We will find out what humans and animals need to be healthy and to stay alive. 

History: For History we will be learning about Mary Seacole and understanding why she is an important historical figure.

Geography: For geography we will be learning about compasses and compass directions.


Again addition to all these exciting things we will be doing PE, Music, PSHE, RE and Art!

How to help your child's learning at home:



Read or share a story with your child every day. Your child will bring home a 'Little Wandle Letters and Sounds' reading book every Thursday. They will be able to read this book as they have read it in school. Ask them to read it to you and then discuss the book. 

What did they like about the story? 

What was their favourite part of the story?

Was there anything which surprised them? 

Please make sure that these book are returned to school on Mondays. 



Work on addition facts to 10 (e.g. 3+4=7, 6+1=7, 2+7=9 etc)

Work on subtraction facts within 10 (e.g. 8-2=6, 4-1=3, 7-4=3 etc)

Practise x tables (2s, 5s & 10s)
