Welcome to Siskins Class!
Our teacher is Miss Burt, and we are supported brilliantly by Mrs Harvey every day. Miss Kee will teach on a Friday morning for PE.
Any of the teachers would be delighted to speak to you if you have any concerns, big or small.
Welcome to the first half of the autumn term.
In English, we will begin by learning about sentences. We will make sure that our sentences begin with capital letters, contain finger spaces between each word, and end with a full stop. We will be saying our sentences first to make sure they make sense before writing them.
We will then move onto writing setting descriptions. Using adjectives to make our sentences even better!
Our unit of maths is all about place value within 10. We will be learning how to sort objects, count forwards and backwards from any given number, and compare number using less than/greater than/equal to symbols.
In science, we will be learning about seasonal changes and weather. We will be looking at the four seasons in depth and looking at the weather during each season.
Our first history unit focusses on chronology within living memory of the community to develop a sense of change over time. We will be looking at how we have grown and changed in our lifetime, and how our local area has changed, particularly the shops and features.
In geography we will be learning about the continents and oceans of the world. We will learn about the seven continents and the five oceans and use an atlas to locate them.
In PSHE our unit of learning is ‘Being Me’. This includes learning how to keep myself safe, understanding my rights and responsibilities, and thinking about how we care for others people’s feelings.
In RE, we will be learning about the Creation Story and identifying things that we think God may be proud of in our world.
During PE lessons, we will be following the ‘Real PE’ programme. This term we will be making sure we can follow instructions, practise instructions safely, and work on simple tasks independently.
In DT we will be learning about mechanisms and how to make our own. We will plan, make and evaluate our mechanisms.
