Autumn 2

Wellbeing

Our focus this term is 'giving and kindness' and children will be completing lots of activities around these themes including defining what kindness is, how kindness effects others and how kindness effects yourself.

English

In English the children will be using the book The Green Ship by Quentin Blake. Children will use this book as a stimulus for their writing. They will focus on choosing ambitious vocabulary, exploring how changes to settings effect characters’ feelings and planning and writing their own narratives. 

Maths

In maths this term the children will be focusing on perimeter and length, and then multiplication and division. Don't forget to direct your children to the the TTRockstars website to practise their times tables, this is a really exciting website and children love it!! 

Geography

In geography this term children will be comparing Brighton and Rio to enable children to answer the question Where would rather go on holiday? Brighton or Rio? Why? Children will analyse evidence and draw conclusions.

Science

In science children will be exploring animals including humans. They will be learning about the digestive system, types of teeth and their functions, tooth decay and food chains.  

PE

In PE children will be focusing on multi skills. These include finding space, defending and attacking, and working with others. Please make sure that your child has a full PE kit including either trainers or plimsoles, a dark pair of jogging bottoms and a dark sweat shirt would also be a great idea as PE lessons will have to take place outside for the foreseeable future.
