Autumn 1


This term we will be retelling, planning and writing a defeating the monster tale. We will be focusing on the The Minpins by Roald Dahl as our core text. We will look at using expanded noun phrases to add more detail, as well as focusing on recaping our basic sentence structure SpAG. 



Our main focus in Maths this term place value. Children will be learning how to identify the value of each digit in three digit numbers. After that, children will be using that learning to look at adding and subtracting using formal written methods. The children will practically find and solve reasoning problems.


In Science the children will be learning about Plants. They will carry out different experiments and record their findings in pie charts, tables and bar charts. The children will be able to label a flowering plant, describe the water transportation process and identify the life cycle of a plant. 


Our Topic this term will be the Stone Age. Children will be stretching their inquisitive muscles to learn about history.


In PE the children will be learning how to play the competitive game Cricket. They will learning: ball control, catching, throwing, bowling and striking the ball through batting. Please note our PE day has changed to Friday for Phoenix and Thursday for Sphinx and will be outdoors.
