Autumn TERM IN THE LOWERS

In English we are looking at lots of different traditional stories. The children will also be learning about nouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs and tenses as well as writing sentences with spaces and the correct use of punctuation. All children will be learning joined up handwriting. In phonics children will be learning letter sounds and blending for reading and writing using the Read, Write, Inc programme.

Maths this term will consist of looking at different number systems and patterns, counting in different jumps, place value, arithmetic and problem solving.

For the first part of the term we will start with science, learning about the seasons. Then we will move onto our history topic about our local area. To give the childen some real life experience of the past we will be going on a trip to Reading Museum and visiting local sites.

 

 

 

 

LEARNING AT HOME

We love it when children continue to learn at home! You can use the Key Stage One Learning Platform to find maths, science, phonics and spellings activities and games. Please ensure that you keep on working with your children on reading, discussing books that your child has read, learn and apply spellings that are given and completing the homework. A variety of spelling activities will be provided as homework to support their application of spellings into their writing.

Every week there will be one piece of homework in homework books. This will be sent out on Thursdays and must be returned by the following Tuesday.

 

Please see our homework policy for further information.
