Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday. Children will need to have an indoor and outdoor PE kit in school for these days.

Our Autumn 1 topic is Scavengers and Settlers. We will be using a chronological timeline to travel through the Stone Age, exploring the three periods. In Science we will be studying rocks and grouping them based on their properties. 

The topics for the rest of the year are:

  1. Autumn 1: Scavengers and Settlers (The Stone Age)    
  2. Autumn 2: Active Planet
  3. Spring 1: Ancient Egypt
  4. Spring 2: Time and Place, Earth and Space
  5. Summer 1: Explorers and Adventurers
  6. Summer 2: Blue Planet


In English we will be exploring the text, 'Stone Age Boy.'  Using the text we will be learning how to write a Stone Age diary entry. We will also be looking at instructional writing. 


In Maths we will be looking at the place value of three-digit numbers, as well as learning strategies to add and subtract them. 


We read with Miss Kershaw/ Mrs Cavanagh1:1. We also take part in shared reading sessions, where we have chance to look at different text types in more detail, following the VIPERS structure. We are currently enjoying reading 'Stig of the Dump' as a whole class. To develop our love of reading we enjoy choosing books to read for pleasure from our class library. Our favourites include titles by David Walliams, Roald Dahl and Dick King Smith.
