Our topic for Autumn 1 is..

Lost in London!

This half term our topic is ‘Lost in London’, during which we will be exploring landmarks, the geographical location of London as well as significant people and events.

 

The children will be reading stories and completing a range of activities in English such as writing in role, writing speech bubbles for characters and writing questions. They will also write information books about London landmarks for tourists visiting the capital city. All of this work is supported by research online with regular teaching about e-safety. 


In Maths we will continue to develop the skill of place value before applying this when adding and subtracting. We will also be counting in 2’s, 3’s, 5’s and 10’s.

 

Within Science the children will be developing their understanding of materials. They will be sorting and comparing the properties, testing their suitability and observing what changes can be made to them through squashing, bending, twisting and stretching.  

 

In Computing we will focus on coding, during which we will introduce the children to algorithms, using repeat and timer commands and debugging. They will use these skills to create a program to retell a story.

 

During Geography we will use maps and atlases to identify countries and develop our understanding of the continents and oceans. The children will enjoy learning songs to help them remember the names and sizes of the continents and oceans!

 

In Music the children will enjoy learning and singing a song called ‘Hands, Feet, Heart’. They will also learn to play instruments along with the song.

 

In RE the children will be reflecting upon special people. They will think about special people to them as well as special people around the world. 

 

During PE we will continue develop our ball skills and will explore a range of techniques within gymnastics. We will also try yoga!

 

Within Art the children will learn about different artists who used a range of skills to represent buildings and landmarks. We will enjoy recreating some of their work and then using their style within our own pieces.

 

PSHE will focus on relationships, particularly with friends. We will discuss what we like and have in common with each other as well as our differences. 

 

We continue to assess the children’s reading, writing and number skills, highlighting areas for development through our next step marking and supporting the children to develop these areas.

 

Please continue to hear your child read and note this in their reading diary.
