In English we will be reading: 



Our writing will be based around exploration narrative and formal recounts. 





In maths, we will continue our mastery approach and in the first half term will learn about place value of number, addition and subtraction. In Autumn 2, the children will learn about methods for multiplication and division and fractions. 


 This is in addition to daily arithmetic practice and times tables sessions.  




 Our science unit is, Animals including Humans. 

The focus of this unit is to learn about the growth and development of humans. 



In history, the children will be learning about Baghdad AD900 as a contrast with British history. 



Our PE days are on a Monday and Wednesday in the first half term. The children will be learning to play invasion games. On a Wednesday, the children will be taught by Mrs McCann alongside a PNE coach. 

On a Monday and Wednesday, the children can come to school in their PE kits. The majority of PE lessons will take place outside. Please ensure children have tracksuit bottoms and the school jumper as the days get colder. Children also need appropriate footwear - pumps or trainers. Earrings should be removed on these days.
