To develop our literacy skills, we will be reading and exploring the stories 'The Tiger that came to Tea', 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' and The Enormous Turnip'. We wil be creating story-maps and role-play areas to learn about story structure and writing character descriptions to develop our langauge. Writing shopping lists, recipies and invitations will enable us to understand a range of non-fiction texts.
In Maths we will develop our knowledge of Place Value through sorting, counting and ordering numbers to 20. We will use real-life contexts, such as cooking, to find one more and one less than and solve missing number problems.
We will learn all about our amazing bodies and the improtant job of our senses in our Science lessons. We will also look at life on a Shropshire farm to identify and compare a variety of animals.
Food in the past will be our theme in History, enabling us to develop our chronological understanding in a range of ways. we will use the information we found out to answer questions such as, 'How can you cook without electricty?' and 'Why were some fruits hard to buy in the past?'
In Geography, we will study more about our wonderful county of Shropshire, making observations and creating maps. We will then use this information to compare Shropshire to Scotland, Wales and Ireland. How are they different? How are they the same?
We will also explore the work of Giuseppe Arcimboldo during Art sessions and use our own resources to create our own representations of Ourselves and Autumn to explorethe theme of 'Form in 3D'.
What an exciting term to come!
