Autumn Term

Welcome to Autumn Term.  In English we will be looking at stories by the same author, as well as stories from other cultures. We will also have the opportunity to look at some poetry and instruction writing.

Our maths work will focus on Number and Calculation, before moving onto Geometry and Fractions.  We will also do daily counting and oral recall, as well as weekly problem solving. Please can you support your children with learning their tables.

Forces and Magnets are our Science topic for this term, and we have linked it to our Design and Technology sessions, where we are going to be looking at and making magnetic games.

The Stone Age is our topic this term and we have lots of exciting things planned to help us learn how the Stone Age people lived.  We really enjoyed our trip to Manchester Museum, we became amateur archaeologists and dug for artefacts, we learnt about the Thunder Stone, and inspected Stone Age tools.  We have put some of our photos at the bottom of the page.

IT will be used to teach coding, word processing skills and to support cross curricular learning.

As we get into December, our RE focus will be Advent.

We love art in Class 3, and we will have plenty of opportunity to paint, make and develop our artistic skills. We will be exploring colour and looking at the work of Van Gough, and to recreating some of his work.

During this term we will be visiting Tesco as part of our geography topic to investigate which countries our food comes from.  We will follow this up with some research into European foods, and a food technology session.

We will have weekly French lessons, PE with our sports coach every Tuesday and Music with Mr Conway every Friday afternoon.

This is just a quick overview of what we will be covering this term. Please look at the websites Curriculum Overview for more details. 

Looking forward to working with you Mrs Quirke, Miss Alcock and Mr O’Keefe.
