Yellow Class - Autumn Term 1
Read Write Inc: Children will be assessed upon returning to school and put into reading ability groups. Pupils will do a speed sound lesson each day and read a text three times on separate occasions. The more frequently your child reads at home, the quicker they will progress through the Read, Write, Inc levels and become a fluent reader. Pupils are assessed every six weeks or more frequently if we feel they need moving on to the next level.
English: This year we will be implementing teaching a separate English lesson alongside RWI. This term we are focusing on simple sentences based on various texts. Please help your child at home by reminding them to use capital letters, finger spaces, full stops and also remind them to check that their sentences make sense by practicing them orally. We will also be learning how to write a set of instructions and well as writing poems using our senses.
Maths: In Maths, we will start by looking at Number and Place Value. We will move onto Length and Mass/Weight. Next, we will look at Addition and Subtraction and finally we will look at 2D and 3D shape.
Science: In Science we will be learning about the human body and our senses. We will find identify, name, draw and label the basic parts of the human body and say which part of the body is associated with each sense. We will recognise that humans are animals and compare and describe differences in our own features. We will also look at the season of Autumn.
History: In History we will be exploring the changes within living memory. We will look at how many years we have lived for and explore how we have changed over time. We will also look at notable events that have happened within our lifetime as well as explore old and new toys.
