Our theme for the Autumn Term to Christmas is ‘Our Amazing Animal Family’ so get ready for animals to take over our classroom and our learning!
In our Science lessons, we will be learning all about different types of animals (including humans!) alongside monitoring the seasonal changes. This will involve spending some time around our school grounds and in Mercer Park and hopefully some hands-on experience with some animals!
In Geography, we will be looking at where we live and what it is like there and how this is similar or different to the places our favourite animals live. This will support the children in learning about the 7 continents and the 5 seas and their characteristics, particularly Antarctica!
Our first few weeks of English lessons will be focusing on labels, lists, captions and instructions and the children are going to produce their own Recipe Book using the skills they learn. Following this, we will be exploring stories by the author Oliver Jeffers and writing our own responses to these! The letters the children wrote about ‘The Day The Crayons Quit’ over the holidays are fantastic, thank you so much for engaging your children in this.
During this term, we will also be accompanying Maple on a fantastic trip to the zoo where the children will be able to see some of the animals they’ve learnt about in action!
I hope you are all ready and raring to go for an exciting new term!
