Autumn Term - Literacy

During this term we have been reading 'The Adventures of Egg Box Dragon'. We engaged in lots of different activities. We designed and made our own Egg Box Dragon using junk modelling. We then wrote instructions for how to make it. We described the Egg Box Dragon using adjectives.   We wrote the story using our own story maps to help us. 


We love to share stories during our reading for pleasure time daily. 

Autumn Term - Maths

At the start of this term in Maths we focused on the place value of number. We learnt how to make numbers using Numicon and Base Ten. We have also spent some time focusing on addition and subtraction. We learnt how to add by counting on and practised our number bonds. We learnt how to subtract by taking away and by counting back. We enjoyed learning about 2d shapes and 3d shapes. We found some in the world around us. 

Autumn Term - Science 

In Science we have been looking at the seasons. We picked our own favourite season and drew what a tree would like. We have particularly focused on the signs of Autumn. We looked at the different types of weather and what we would need to wear in it. 

Autumn - Other 

In Art we have enjoyed experimenting with primary and secondary colours. We made our own pictures by mixing the colours. In DT we made windmills. 


In PSHE we have looked at the Zones of Regulation. Red is for angry, yellow is for fizzy, green is for happy and blue is for sad. We have talked about what makes us feel that way and what we can do to get ourselves back to green. We talked about how we can be respectful to others and looked at how we can use our indoor and outdoor area appropriately.  


We loved going sea swimming at the start of the term. In PE we have been doing lots of dancing! We enjoyed pretending to be pirates.
