Autumn Term One


This term sees us learning about ANIMALS. 


The topic is called 'Aren't Animals Amazing?' We will be looking at texts such as 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea' as well as 'Dear Zoo'. We will visit the Forest School and be looking at different classifications of animals...are they reptiles, mammals or amphibians, farm animals or wild animals or are they pets? As well as looking at how amazing we, as humans are. (Well aren't we? surprise) In Maths we will be looking at more or less numbers to 20 and beyond, concentrating on forming our numbers. We will be studying Henri Rousessau in our Art lessons and trying to recreate some of his work.


We will continue with our daily phonic lessons in order to help reading, writing and letter formation.




PE kits will be needed for children. Our PE lessons will take place on a Friday afternoon during 'Fitness Friday'. (You will be already familiar with this!) PE kits can be left at school for each half term and then taken home to be washed during the holidays! Please ensure all kits are labelled clearly with names (shorts included please.)
