Autumn Topics

This half term the children will be looking at the narrative ‘The Emperor’s Egg’ as their stimulus for their writing.


We will be looking at simple and complex sentences, using different forms of punctuation, identifying fiction and non fiction texts, developing joined cursive handwriting and concentrating on the year 1 and 2 common exception words.


We will be focusing on number. Recalling and using addition and subtraction facts to 20 to become fluent, and derive and use related facts up to 100. We will move onto recalling multiplication and division facts (2’s, 5’s, 10’s and 3’s). Place value and mental maths problems.


We will be learning about the basic needs of animals, life cycles, food chains, habitats and animals adapting to extreme environments.


The children will investigate the life of Captain Scott- the famous explorer, naming the continents and oceans of the world, simple map work using symbols and using compass directions.


This term we will be looking at the value ‘Respect’.


Christianity- caring for others.
