Autumn Term Two

In the second half of the Autumn term, our focus switches to geography. As geographers, we find out about Carlton Colville and Lowestoft and discuss what human and physical geographical features are. We then look at the city and the countryside, looking at more detail at our capital city London.
As historians, we find out about what it was like to live in Victorian times and we look at The Great Exhibition (an exciting event in history).
As readers, we will explore instructions and find out why they are so important. We will also be enjoying looking at dragons  and other mythological creatures in more detail.
In phonics, we will continue to have two phonics lessons daily. Each week, we will focus on tricky words and learn how to spell and read them.
As writers, we will find out how to write really good instructions, including bossy words, a goal, numbers and time words. We will use our reading to find out about mythological creatures and write a set of instructions about how to trap one. We will also be designing a new outfit for Father Christmas and through our writing, persuade him that our outfit is the best choice.
As mathematicians, we will be focusing on addition and subtraction and looking at lots of different resources which we can use to support us in answering these types of sums. As well as this, we will also focus on number bonds and 2D shapes.
As computer experts, we will be designing and creating an electronic Christmas card.
As designers, we will be focusing on designing and creating a boat, which must meet the criteria of being able to float. We will have lots of fun planning our boats, designing them and carrying out an investigation to see whether they float.
