Autumn term 2021 – Homes Under The Hammer
Our topic this autumn half term in ‘homes under the hammer’. This means that throughout the term all our learning will be linked to different homes.
In English this term we are going to be looking at a range of fictional stories such as Hansel and Gretel, Up, A squash and a squeeze and the 3 little pigs. We will use these books to help us write simple sentences. We will also use a squash and squeeze to learn about rhyming words.
In maths this term will begin our journey by looking at positional language like above and below. We will then move onto number work and working with numbers up to 20. We will learn skills like doubling and halving, estimating and counting on.
In Topic this term we are looking at our school and surrounding areas. At the end of this half term, we will even go on a walk around the school to look at the different kinds of houses we can see. We will also be asking questions about different kinds of houses, and what it might be like to live there.
In science this term our topic is materials. We will conduct a variety of test on different materials to group them based on their properties. We will also be looking at how the world around us changes as the season progress. This means we will be going on some walks around the school to notice the changes.
