Autumn 1

English

As writers, we will work on developing sentences using accurate punctuation and adjectives and adverbs to include detail. We will further develop our ability to use conjunctions of time, cause and place to extend ideas. A strong focus will be on developing a joined handwriting style and apply spelling patterns taught into our independent writing. This half term we will write a narrative retelling of The Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura. As readers, we will focus on one page biographies of famous people, The Hidden House by Martin Waddell and Leon and The Place Between by Angela McAlister and Graham Baker-Smith.

Maths

As mathematicians, we will start by consolidating and reinforcing our understanding of number and place value before moving onto strategies to solve addition and subtraction. We will consolidate and reinforce the 2, 5 and 10 times tables and introduce the 3, 4 and 8 times tables.

Learning Journey

As historians, we will learn about the Stone Age and finding out about hunter gatherers and formulating and answer questions about homes, clothing, tools in the Stone Age. We will visit Creswell Crags, a Stone Age site in Derbyshire, and use a variety of evidence sources for historical enquiry.

As geographers, we will use fieldwork to observe and record the human and physical features of Creswell Crags.

As artists, we will comment on works of art using visual language and paint the landscape around Creswell Crags using watercolour paint.

As musicians, we will develop our music vocabulary, listen to instruments and discuss their sounds they make as well as listen to a variety of songs/pieces of music.

As scientists, we will learn to work scientifically within the context of ‘Earth Rocks’.
