Autumn Term 2022 Learning

 This half term we will be learning about Earth and Space in Science and finding out why the moon does not always look the same in the night sky.  We are looking forward to a trip to the Space Museum to complement this learning.  Our art work this half term will be using pastels and textiles with a space theme.

In writing we are using the narrative One Small Step to write about a girl's dream to become an astronaut.

In maths we will start the term with a focus on place value, moving on to addition and subtraction.

In computing we are using Scratch to become competent coders and in PE we begin with invasion games - hockey, basketball and football.

We are making pencil cases in DT and using and making maps in Geography.  We are learning about significant figures such as Katherine Johnson in history and we are discussing relationships in PSHE.

This half term we are reading the novel 'The Boy at the Back of the Class' by Onjali Q Rauf.

It tells the story of a nine year old boy who joins a new school but he never talks, he never smiles and he doesn't even like lemon sherberts!  But Ahmet isn't strange at all.  He's a refugee who's run away from a war.  That's where best friends Josie, Michael and Tom come in because together they've come up with a plan...
