Autumn 2

In English, we will be looking at a variety of space stories such as ‘Whatever Next’ and ‘The Way Back Home’. We will be learning how to plan and write stories and will develop our understanding of a non-chronological report.  We will be encouraging the children to develop their vocabulary in order to describe parts of their story.
In Maths, we will continue to develop our knowledge of 2D and 3D shapes.  We will then be moving on to addition and subtraction, ensuring that the children have a secure understanding of the symbols +, - and = and will move on to problem solving towards the end of the term.
In Topic we will be learning about space! We will be familiarising ourselves with the name of the planets and their characteristics. We will also be exploring astronauts and the food that they eat in space as well as what they need to survive. In DT, we will design and create our own space smoothies in the Food Tech Kitchen.
In Science we will be learning about seasonal changes from Autumn to Winter.
In Art we will be learning about colour and will hold a whole school exhibition at the end of term for you to view our fantastic artwork.
In Music we will be exploring our new music room and begin to develop our understanding of musical words such as rhythm and tempo.  
In Computing, we will recap on the importance of E-safety as well as create a space map to navigate Beebots through.  
In PHSE, we will be exploring ways to discuss our feelings and how to develop our speaking & listening skills to offer support to our peers.
In RE, we will learn about Christianity, focusing on the Birth of Jesus and its importance to some Christians.
