Autumn 1 Sep-Oct

This half term our main theme is: ‘People Who Help Us’

Our term will begin with Values Week. During Values week we will explore our school values, what they mean and how we can show them. We will then move on to ‘People Who Help us’ where we will learn all about the different people that help us in our community. We will also spend time learning more about some of our favourite stories and traditional tales.

 

Religious Education

In R.E we will be learning about and celebrating Harvest. We will also be discovering how unique we are and how special we all are to God.

 

Mathematics

In Maths we will be working on number recognition, rote counting and number sense.

 

English

Our reading will be mainly focused on non-fiction books linked to our themes along with some of our favourite fiction stories when reading for pleasure. We will also be learning some of our first ‘speed sounds’ in phonics and practising our mark making in many ways.
