Our work- Autumn Term:
In English we have been looking at traditional tales and winter/seasonal stories.
In Maths we have concentrated on number recognition and ordering as well as introducing the children to addition and subtraction. We have started to look at 2D shapes.
See long term plan for more information.
We have focused on a journey around the world this half term with visits to Africa, Antarctica, Australia and China. See long term plan for more detail.
In Literacy we have read books and learnt about the different places as well as the animals which have lived there. We have done this through both fiction and nonfiction texts. The children have really enjoyed this and have shown us through quizzes and their writing all the wonderful things they have learnt. We have been making lists, labelling pictures and describing animals as well as making our own books!
In Maths we have concentrated on shape space and measure while still maintaining our number work. We have sorted shapes into 2D and 3D and sequenced what we do during our day. We have learnt new vocabulary related to measures including longest and shortest. In number we have consolidated our understanding of numbers to 20 grouping them in different ways as well as putting them in order. We have learnt how to add and subtract building on the skills we started last term. Again, we have learnt new vocabulary including more and fewer.
In our topic work we have focussed a lot on our understanding of the world learning all about the different countries we have been reading about. We have looked at the climate and the flags of the countries as well as the traditions and celebrations they have in those countries. This we linked to our celebration of Chinese New Year. We have carried out science experiments using ice as well as trying to find the comfiest bed!
During this half term we also celebrated national storytelling week. We learnt the story of Goldilocks and the 3 bears using our talk for writing actions and Makaton. All this helped us tell the story for our adults at home. We designed puppets to go with our stories as well as drawing storyboards.
Next half term we will be looking at people who help us.
We used Talk for Writing to tell the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff.
For Harvest Ruby Class have been reading the story of The Scarecrows wedding by Julie Donaldson.
We decided to make our own Betty O'Barley and Harry O'Hay to put in the garden. See the fun we had making these in the following pictures.
