Autumn 1

Muck Mess & Mixtures (Art Focus): 

We started last term with Muck Mess & Mixtures which focusses lots on art. In English the children  used Mr Messy's story to help them understand the basic structure of a story (opening, build up, problem, resolution and ending). During writing children are reminded to use their phonics and to punctuate their sentences. We looked at describing different Mr Men using adjectives and verbs.   In Maths we focussed on place value. The children have looked at identifying and making two digit numbers using base 10.  In Science we focussed on properties of Materials. The children identified, labelled and sorted different materials into groups. For Art we experimented with different painting skills. The children created pictures by mixing paints together and using a paint brush to create patterns. They have also created pictures using bubble paint! We also learnt about the artists Carl Warner and Vincent Van Gogh. 

 

RE: The chosen people 


We looked at and compared the story of Abraham and Moses. We learnt about the jobs God asked Moses and Abraham to do and why God trusted them with these jobs.

We will compare were London is to Leeds and look at different modes of transport we could take to go to London. In History we will compare how buildings were built across the UK before The Great Fire of London and how  they have changed overtime. In English we will look at diary writing and identify key skills of diary writing. We will also look at key skills in letter writing. We will write diary entries and letters about The Great Fire of London. In Maths we will continue to look at adding and subtracting using the column method. We will also look at measuring using standard units (cm/kg/m). In Science we will continue identifying different materials and their properties.
