Our English text for Autumn 1 is:

Lost and Found 
Written by Oliver Jeffers 

The children will be focusing upon developing their ability to use captial letters and full stops to construct sentences. 
In addition,to using conjuctions such as 'and' and 'because' 
as well as developing and enriching their vocabulary with exicting new adjectives. 





We are focusing on various topics this Autumn term including: place value of tens and ones, counting confidently to 20, number formation, number recognition, counting securly backwards and forwards, using a number line to support addition and subtaction and finally developing our fluency whilst exploring numeral patterns. In fun and engaging ways. 




This term's science topic is 'Animals including Humans'.
The children will developing their understanding of similairites and differences between animals and humans. Key characterists and grouping animals into amphibians, mammals, reptiles, fish and birds.
Can your child think of any mammals?




This term we are looking at moving in different ways. Developing our ability to change direction and enhancing coordination to be able to use space effectively. Through games and challenges.

Class Reading Challenge 
To encourage reading for pleasure we have selected Julia Donaldson as our 'Author of the Month'. Allowing children to take a Julia Donaldson book home and read as many as they can before October half term to receive 25 dojos. How many do you think you can read? It is also a great way to earn stamps for your reading worm and make sure you log on 'Boom Read'.
