Autumn 1

Message from the teachers:


We are really looking forward to meeting all of the children and beginning our first term together this year. 

During this term we will be sharing dates for our Gruffalo Tea Party, celebrating Harvest at our special assembly and voting in our next school council member. 


As well as beginning our new topic the Gruffalo, we cannot wait. 


This half term's learning:



This term we begin our work on 'Investigating Numbers'. Through this topic, we'll gain a deeper understanding of numbers, their place value and patterns. We'll build numbers using a variety of equipment and reason about them. 


Keep practicing counting forwards and backwards crossing over the 100 barrier and making a two digit number e.g. 23 out of different equipment e.g. 20p + 2p + 1p. 







This half terms learning:


The children will be complete the following units this half term:

Labels, lists and posters.

During this unit the children will work on developing their use of adjectives and expanded noun phrases to write interesting labels for their Gruffalo's and other characters. They'll create lists of equipment needed for the Gruffalo Tea party and will develop their understanding of posters to deliver information in an eye catching, clear, concise way. 

This terms learning:


This half term our topic will be the 'The Gruffalo'
