Autumn Term - 2019
Hello everyone and welcome back! I hope you have all thoroughly enjoyed the summer holidays and have had a well-rested break. The Key Stage One team are excited to hear how your holidays have been and we are looking forward to a term packed full of exciting learning ahead. In our English learning, we will be indulging ourselves in the adventure of Harry and his bucket full of dinosaurs! The children will be writing labels and captions and begin to explore with expanded noun phrases and conjunctions to extend their sentences. The children will increase their consistency of punctuation use of capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. In mathematics, the children will be looking at number and place value with numbers up to 10, addition and subtraction with numbers up to 10, number and place value with numbers up to 20 and count in 2s. In science, the children will experiment with a variety of everyday materials. They will begin to sort different materials into categories by property, name some objects made from different materials and work scientifically to test the strength of different materials in an experiment! This term in art, the children will have lots of fun with a range of activities around the theme of pointillism and will learn all about a significant individual called Emily Davison!
We are all looking forward to a fantastic year with you all with lots of exciting learning together!
Your child will receive times tables and spellings practice sheets every Friday which need to be completed by the following Thursday. They are also expected to read at least 5 times a week which needs to be recorded in their reading records by an adult. This is also expected during school holidays too. They have PE on a Monday morning so are expected to bring their PE kits into school on a Monday and it will be sent home on a Friday. The children who complete all of these will gain a raffle ticket for the chance to win a prize as part of our whole school ‘In it to win it’ challenge. Come on 1/2H, we can do it!
