Our Key Question this term is:

What makes me unique?

In English this term we will read the story ‘The Gigantic Turnip.’ We will work hard to recall the main events and to write the story in our own words. We will focus on learning the story and being able to say the story out loud, before using our phonic knowledge to record our ideas in our own sentences. We will practise using clear finger spaces between each word and we will to start to use capital letters and full stops in our sentences. We will also be doing lots of reading within school, to help us increase our confidence and fluency when reading aloud.



In Maths we will be learning about place value within 10. This will include sorting, counting and representing objects to 10, finding one more and one less and reading and writing numbers to 10. We will also work on comparing groups of objects and numbers to 10, as well as ordering them in different ways. We will also begin to learn about addition and subtraction within 10, finding, using and comparing number bonds and finding fact families.


We will also be learning about parts of the body, our senses and the seasons, as well as how we have changed in our lives. We will learn about the countries and capitals of the UK, as well as being busy working on our dance, multi-skills and fencing skills! 


To help your child with their learning, please read regularly with them and practise their KIRFs. These can be found on the school website under key information - curriculum - mathematics.

Please find below a summary of what your child will be learning this term, as well as a knowledge organiser containing key facts and information which your child will learn. It would be fantastic if you could go through some of these facts with your child and talk to them about what they know.
