Whittlebury Class 1, Mrs Howie
Welcome back to school. We hope you have had a wonderful, safe and healthy summer holiday. Please find below an overview of the Autumn term curriculum.
In English, we will be completing challenges in our Talk 4 Writing sessions, working on the genre of cumulative tales and instruction writing. Exploring rich and ambitious vocabulary. This will be inspired by our focus on ‘Room on the Broom’. We will continue with our daily phonic and handwriting lessons.
Our Art and creative work this term will be inspired by the work of Renoir with opportunities to explore techniques and work on collaborative projects.
In Science, we will be examining Materials, identifying what objects are made from and investigating lots of different materials inside and outside the classroom. We will act as Scientists, exploring properties of materials, their similarities and differences and what materials are best to construct certain things from and which are not.
In RE this term, we will complete shared collective worship reflecting on our Christian beliefs. We will focus on belonging and what does this look like in Christian, Islam and Judaism religions. We will explore the actions and symbols mean especially during a wedding celebration. In PHSE, we will explore the theme of ‘Being Me’. Celebrating our uniqueness and investigating our place in the school and wider community.
In Physical Education, we are continuing to use Real PE to support our lessons as well as exploring Yoga as part of our mindfulness work.
In History, we will be exploring toys, old and new. Exploring toys that were our favourites when we were younger and comparing then to the toys we play with now. We will look at how we have grown in our ability to play with more complex things both physically and mentally. Looking at how toys have changed and evolved over time and comparing our toys to those played with by our parents, grandparents.
I look forward to sharing all our weekly successes on class dojo.
