Welcome back to the second part of the Autumn Term which is long but exciting and filled with lots of new learning and experiences. Our topic question this term is 'Why do we use lights to celebrate?'
In English we will continue to learn our sounds and focus on the basic skills in writing and reading. In Maths we will continue to work on our number knowledge to 10. We will learn to count, add and subtract and practice number bonds.
In our History topic we will learn all about Gunpowder Plot of Guy Fawkes and we will create firework art, rocket craft and candle holders. In Geography we will consider the different climate areas and how weather affect the environment.
In Science we will observe the weather and learn all about the seasonal changes such as hibernation and migration. In PE we will focus on creating a dance using simple movements. In music we will learn our nativity song and will focus on how to perform. In RE we will learn the Christmas Story and why Christmas is important to Christians. We will explore the program Kodable and how to program a Bee Bot so it moves in the right direction.
