Autumn Term Two

Welcome to Autumn Term Two!
Dawali Day is an opportunity to find out about this special festival and we will use the children’s experiences to write a recount of the day. We look forward to seeing the children’s bright outfits on Tuesday November 9th.  
As readers, we will continue to learn the phonics sounds on phase 3 and we will have lots of practise applying this in phase 4. We will also look at phase 4 common exception words, knowing how to read these by sight and write these within our writing. Also as readers, we will begin guided reading sessions, developing our comprehension and decoding skills.
As writers, we will learn how to write an effective set of instructions for how to catch a mythical creature. We will also try to persuade Mrs Claus that our new designed outfit for Father Christmas, is the best. During our guided reading sessions, the children will have the opportunity to complete some independent writing.
As mathematicians, we are going to continuing learning addition and deepen our knowledge of number bonds. We will also go onto learn about subtraction, as well the more practical maths skills, that length and measure focuses on.
As geographers, we will learn about our village of Carlton Colville and compare it to another village location. We then go onto look at London, focusing on landmarks, as well as physical and human features.
As historians, we will travel back to the Victorian era and we will look at the Great Exhibition that took place in Hyde Park in London. We will have a special day, where the children can get dressed up in Victorian clothes and experience the exhibition for themselves (they may even see the famous diamond on display!)
As computer experts, we will use Dazzle to create a Christmas e-card.
In RE, we will finish off looking at the beliefs and practices of Christians and we will then compare these to those of Judaism.
In RSE, we will look at how we are unique individuals but we are also part of a whole, wider community.
