Autumn 2

In English the children are getting used to completing reading comprehensions and we will be reading a lot more. We will be reading books about The Gunpowder Plot and The Great Fire of London. The children will create some exciting pieces of writing. We will be applying detail such as adjectives, adverbs, conjunctions and suffixes and punctuation to sentences, checking for sense and the tense of writing.

In Maths this half term we will have a big focus on arithmetic and following the different processes within a range of sums whilst continuing to focus on number facts and place value. They will have a look at multiplication facts and division facts. We will also look at measuring.

In Science we will be focusing on how to keep our bodies fit and healthy. We will be looking at balanced diets and how different foods can affect our bodies. The children will learn how germs are spread.

In History this half term, we will be learning about Bonfire Night and also the Great Fire of London. The children will be doing some outdoor learning related to these topics. We will be learning new facts about what happened in history.

In Art will be focusing on an artist called Mondrian who focuses on drawing with lines. The children will create their own line pictures.

In P.E this half term we will be focusing on dance. The dance will be linked to our History topic and the children will be creating dances based on The Great Fire of London.
