This term we are learning...


This half term in Maths we will be learning about place value. Within this unit, we will be learning the vocabulary ‘tens and ones’, checking our one-to-one correspondence, and making sure we know everything there is to know within numbers to 10. We will then move on to addition and subtraction unit, when we will apply our knowledge and understanding of place value to calculating.


Please remember our fantastic reading challenge! To receive a certificate at the end of the week, children will need to read at home 3 times a week. We will also be reading with them in school so there are lots of opportunities to achieve a certificate. Please remember to sign your child’s reading log when you have read with them. Children can have their books changed whenever they have finished a book, and these books must come in every day as we have group readers.


We will start our writing units with a beautiful poem called 'In My Heart; a Book of Feelings' where we will spend time every day stacking sentences then writing our own poems. All our writing sessions involve three chunks - Engage, Model, Innovate to support secure sentence writing.


In Science, we will be exploring Animals, The Human Skeleton, Our Digestive System, Circulatory System and How to Keep our Bodies Healthy. We will be exploring all these areas through lots of interactive experiments and challenges!


During our Thrive sessions this half term we will be looking at ‘Power and Identity’. Within this, we will be looking at; online safety, personal care of myself, how different people help me in the school community, how I can ask for help within school and within the local community.


Our Geographical skills will be crucial when we start to explore our local area in more depth and we will be learning about how to use maps to find out information about locations. We will be planning routes using maps, and be able to identify specific locations on a globe and a world map!


In our weekly Music lessons, we will be studying the Charanga unit 'Hands, Feet, Heart' which focusses on singing, then playing the song on instruments to accompany our class vocal ensemble. We will then build on our knowledge to  write our own ideas using musical notation!

Outdoor Learning

We take part in a weekly forest school session on a Thursday each week this term. We will be learning how to tie knots, enjoy the outdoor investigation time, create firest art and even start to learn bushcraft skills such as lighting a fire for nettle tea.


Our classrooms will be covered in beautiful colours this half term as we develop our understanding of primary colours and secondary colours. We will be increasing our knowledge of how to produce tints and shades, with a focus on geometric shapes. 


All classes are lucky enough to have specialist sports coaches teaching their P.E. for a session per week. Initially, these sessions will focus on developing fundamental movement skills, both inside and out.

relationship and health education

We use the Jigsaw programme to ensure we cover all the areas of this subject including learning about healthy relationships, exploring our place in the world, physical and mental well-being and British values. This half term, the unit we will be studying is called 'Being Me in My World'.


Our code.org unit this half term is all about algorythms - we will be learning how to become computer programmers in order to create mazes, and loops.
