Autumn 2 Curriculum

Reading

In phonics children will continue to learn sounds, following the RWI programme. They will use these sounds to read books appropriate to their reading level. 

In addition to daily phonics lessons we shall also be sharing a class story with the children every day. It is really important that children become familiar with quality texts as this supports their comprehension and language development.

Each Friday, children will bring home a phonics book and a book from the class library for you to share at home. You can also use the Reading Eggs programme to support your children’s learning. Logins can be found in your child's R@homebook.

Remember to record your child’s reading in their R@Homebook. This includes books you read to them. Please talk to your child about what they are reading and remember, reading the same book over and over helps children to develop confidence and fluency in reading.

 

English

In English, we will be reading lots of high quality texts to engage children and spark their imagination. We will use these books as a stimulus for writing, drama and artwork, with a strong focus on developing language. 

We will be looking at Traditional Tales including The Three Little Pigs, The Gingerbread Man and Hansel and Gretel.

       

Maths

Our maths learning will focus on:

  • Addition within 10

Using methods such as counting on, making addition stories,and solving picture problems.

  • Subtraction within 10

Using methods such as crossing out, counting back and making subtraction stories.

  • Positions

Including naming positions in queues and left and right positions.

You can use the Numbots programme to support your chlild at home. Logins can be found in your child's R@homebook.

Science

We will be learning about Materials and their properties - exploring what different materials look like and feel like. We will then be learning vocabulary to describe and sort them.
