Autumn Term Topics

‘Intrigue and Investigation’ – is the theme for our annual events i.e. Expressive Arts Spectacular, whole school play etc. The children will be honing their thinking skills  and focusing on what can be done at a local, national and global level through assemblies, theme days, whole school events and class activities. 

In addition:

English
FICTION:
Using the delightful illustrations and books of Michael Foreman (I’ll Take You to Mrs Cole and Dinosaurs and all that Rubbish) children have the opportunities to practice simple, compound and complex sentences with powerful verbs.  They then create their own stories.

NON-FICTION:
Children will learn about instructions and explanations based around the glitzy world of the game show.  They will learn about features of explanations before going on to write their own based on a game show with a special treat at the end.

POETRY:
Using a selection of poems to explore how to create images using words.

  • Daddy fell into the Pond by Alfred Noyes
  • The Bug Chant by Tony Mitton
  • I like this Poem by Kaye Webb

Children find and use adjectives and adjective phrases to convert a poem to prose.  Use their voice to add excitement to a poem performance and compose poems using the themes of animals and weather.

Maths
Place value and money; addition and subtraction; multiplication and division; shape; problem-solving and investigations.

Science
This Planet Rocks! – The children are going to research and make a documentary on rocks, soils and fossils.

PSHE
Being Me in My World – Knowing my attitudes and actions make a difference to the class team; understanding who is in my school community, the roles they play and how I fit in; understanding how democracy works through the school council; understanding that my actions affect myself and others; caring about other people’s feelings and trying to empathise with them; understanding how groups come together to make decisions.

Celebrating difference – accepting that everyone is different; including others when working and playing; knowing how to help if someone is being bullied; trying to solve problems; trying to use kind words; knowing how to give and receive compliments.
