Autumn: Term 1
This term our theme is 'Discovering The Unknown'. Within each area of our curriculum we will be exploring this idea and investigating lots of questions about the world around us.
In Science we are going to be investigating states of matter. We will be finding out about solids, liquids and gases - comparing and grouping them according to their properties. We will also be finding out about condensation and evaporation and the important part they play in the water cycle.
Our Science Knowledge Organiser below will tell you a little more about what we will be learning:
In History we will be investigating The Romans. We will be focusssing on what life was like during this period of history and the beliefs that people had who lived in those times.
Please take a look at our Hiistory Knowledge Organiser below to find out more about what we will be learning:
Our English work will be firstly based upon our whole school book, 'The Wall In The Middle Of The Book' written by Jon Agee. Through our investigation into this book we will be thinking about themes such as diversity and how when something is unfamiliar to us it can make us worry until we find out more. This term we will also be using the books, 'Escape to Pompeii' written by Christina Balit and 'The Land of Roar'.
Using all of our texts, we will be exploring different types of writing including letters, diaries, narratives and adverts.
This term our we will be investigating place value in maths. We will be exploring numbers up to 10,000 using different representations and equipment. We will also be using our place value knowledge to add and subtract increasingly tricky numbers and amounts.
Our PE sessions this term will be on Mondays and Wednesdays. Children need to attend school wearing their kit.
