Autumn 2


Traditional tales

In English this half term we have been learning about traditional tales with a twist. The story we focused on was Little Red Riding Hood. We retold the story using ‘talk4write’ and then used this to create a role on the wall for each character.


In Maths we have been learning how to find fractions of shapes and numbers.  We have also explored the operation Multiplication, using what we had learnt to answer questions.

Theme- focus Science

Our topic this half term has been ‘Fighting Fit’. We have investigated how medicines should be used and looked after. We also found out what all living things have in common.

Autumn 1


Stories with familiar settings

We have been reading the story 'The Pirates Next Door' by Jonny Duddle. We acted out the story, wrote messages to Jim Lad and also wrote a story all about Jim Lad and Matilda's adventures.



Place Value

We have been representing numbers in different ways including partitioning, drawing tens and ones and writing the number in words. It was fun working as a team, to find different ways of making a number.


We have found out about the physical and human features in the local area. First we looked around the school grounds and then we went for a walk on the roads nearby to see what we could see. We saw lots of different types of houses as well as Pendle Hill in the distance. Next we drew our own maps to show the features around our school.


We have been finding out how games have changed over the years by asking our parents which games they played when they were young. We talked about different games that can be played in the playground and found that many of them have been played in the past.


We identified lots of different feelings. We talked about how to recognise how other people are feeling by looking at the expressions on their faces.
