Autumn Curriculum 

Reading  

This term in reading we will be using our summer reading text ‘Wigglesbottom Primary: Breaktime Bunnies!’ by Pamela Butchart.

We will be working on several reading strategies as the term progresses, including 

predicting, clarifying, inferring, summarising and retrieval. 

Reading at home: 

To help improve reading stamina and comprehension in class, please make sure your child is reading their school book to you at home and accessing Reading Eggs to practice their reading.

  • Full stops, capital letters, commas and exclamation marks (revisiting from Year 2)
  • Adverbs
  • Contractions (e.g. can’t, shouldn’t, would’ve) 
  • Conjunctions 

Maths

Our maths learning will focus on:

  • Reading, writing, ordering and comparing numbers to at least 1,000 and determine the value of each digit.
  • Adding and subtracting whole numbers with more than 3 digits, including using formal written methods.

Geography 

Though our topic Geography unit ‘UK and Europe’, we will be focusing lots on geography knowledge, skills and fieldwork including: 

  • Naming and locating countries, cities, landmarks within the UK, and understand their importance. 
  • Asking and answering geographical questions.
  • To use fieldwork to observe, measure, record and present the physical and human features  in the local area.

 JIGSAW PSHE

Our theme this half term is ‘Being Me in My World’. Children will be developing their social and emotional skills through discussion, debate, partner work and group work. Some of the themes they will be exploring include: 

  • Valuing each other and making people feel welcome. 
  • Identifying our emotions and our friend’s emotions.
  • How our behaviour can bring rewards and consequences. 
  • Why we value working cooperatively, and how to do it well!

 

Current Homework 23.10.20

Spelling

Over the half term holiday look at words ending in dge. Why not have a go at putting these words into an interesting sentence.

badge, edge, bridge, dodge, fudge

Can you find any other words that end with dge too?

If you fancy a challenge try putting them in a sentence that includes an adjective, verb and an adverb!

Maths

Over the past few weeks we have been learning addition (with renaming) and subtraction. With your families could you have a go at writing and working out your own word problems?

e.g. Ms Panks had 162 tennis balls in the P.E. cupboard but Mr Kin borrowed 40. How many balls were left in the P.E. cupboard?

Ms McWalter baked 126 cookies on a Monday and then baked another 298 on Tuesday. How many cookies did she bake altogether?

 Here's a video to help you with renaming.

Home Project

If you check out the Google Classroom there is a Geography home full of fun activities for you to do in the holiday!
