Autumn Term - What a Journey!
This term, in our topic learning, we will be exploring Plymouth and looking at where it is in the world. The children will learn about the human and physical features and create a simple map with a key. We will then compare Plymouth to India and talk about the similarities and differences. The children will learn about different landmarks, weather and population. In our art lessons, the children will learn about the different ways art is used in India and there will be time to pracitse some of these skills to create our own rangoli patterns.
In our RE learning, we will continue to look at Christianty and learn about the important signs and symbols. We will explore what these means to Christians which will help us to rememeber about significant beliefs.
In Computing, we will be learning that stories can be represented in different ways including presentations, eBook and audio books. This will be based on the traditional tales that they have learnt.
This term, our English work will be based on the Disney's 'Jungle Book' to help us to develop our reading comprehension and our Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar skills. We will look closely at word types (nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives), apostrophes for contractions and for possession as well as revising what we already know about punctutation. Our reading comprehension skills will include, inference, sequencing and understanding vocabulary. We will look carefully at different question styles and talk about the best way to answer them.

This term, the children will be engaged in a range of activities to improve their fluency in knowing how to count up to and beyond 100. They will know how to partition numbers into tens and ones and in a variety of combinations. They will know how to recognise odd and even numbers and will compare and order numbers up to 100, including using <, > and = signs. The children will then move on to counting in multiples of 2, 5, 10 and 3. This is a great place to start practising counting skills at home.
