This half term we will be learning ...
As part of our English, we take part in daily guided reading lessons. This half term, we are reading the story 'A Mummy Ate My Homework' by Thiago De Moraes. We will be practicing different reading skills and learning about the different vocabulary in the story.
In Writing, we will be working on a story continuation using the incredible book 'Marcy and the Riddle of the Sphinx by Joe Todd-Stanton.
In Maths, this half-term, we will be working on Length & Perimeter and Multiplication & Division. We will be learning about equivalent lengths and the perimeters of rectilinear shapes and polygons. We will also be improving our timetables and learning how to multiply three numbers.
To help our Maths we will be using Times Tables Rockstars and the Rekenrek!
It is important that we practise our time tables every day, as we take the time table check this year.
Our Science topic for Autumn 2 is 'Animals including Humans'. We will be learning all about the digestive system and our teeth.
This half-term we will be learning History. Our History topic is Ancient Egypt. We will learn all about the River Nile and Tutankhamun.
Our work in R.E this half-term will be focused on 'What is the most significant part of the Nativity story for Chrisitian's today?'.
Happy Confident Me
We are learning through Happy Confident Me, this is a journey through 10 Powers that will help children better know and understand themselves and others, and build an internal toolkit that will set them up for life.
Our Author Focus is: Thiago de Moraes
Thiago de Moraes spends most of his time in a tiny shed at the bottom of his garden, writing and illustrating books, comics and bits of old cardboard boxes.
He enjoys telling all sorts of stories, from non-fiction books like Myth Atlas and its sequels to picture books and fiction, including the A Mummy Ate My Homework series and Old Gods New Tricks. He also creates comics for The Phoenix magazine.
Thiago has won the Sheffield Children’s Book Award, was longlisted for the Klaus Flugge Prize and twice nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal. His books have been translated into 24 languages, with surprisingly few complaints so far.
He is 90% beard, dangerously fond of bacon and lives in England with his wife, kids and a pet tortoise called Nibbles.
