Autumn Term Learning.
In Maths this term, children will be learning about number and place value within 10 for the first four weeks. This will involve counting forwards and back within 10, ordering numbers in a sequence, identifying one more than and one less than (within 10), one to one correspondence, ordinal numbers and placing numbers on a number line. We will then be moving on to adding and subtracting within 10 and applying this knowledge when consolidating our number bond facts. Towards the end of the Autumn Term, we will move on to shape and then revisit number and place value, but within 20. The children will also practise counting in 2's and 10's daily and they will practise forming numbers to 20 correctly. The children will be challenged with reading numbers to twenty in words and learning to write them .
This terms Topic is called 'Childhood'. The children will be learning about life in the 1950's and comparing it to life in the present day. The children will be placing events and life stages on a timeline and they will learn how to complete their family tree. The children will share important events that have happened in their lives and learn about a significant event in history......The Queen's Coronation. The children will look at and learn what an artefact is too. Along side their Topic, the children will be getting busy drawing, collaging and painting portraits for their companion project 'Funny Faces'.
