Autumn 2

It has been lovely to welcome back the children and see their smiling faces. The children have returned to school with an incredible desire to learn and we have been blown away by their enthusiasm.

This half term our theme is ‘To infinity and Beyond’. This has been based on a book called ‘The Way Back Home’, where the children will make predictions, draw inferences and write a summary of the main events. This will prepare the children to write a letter imagining they are stranded in space.

We will be incorporating a number of foundation subjects (History, Science and Art) into this, where we will be talking about the main events from History such as ‘The Moon Landing’. Also, we will be able to understand the movement of the Earth and the Moon (Science).

In Maths, we will be learning about place value and number to investigate number up to 1 million in relation to the value of each digit, comparing and ordering numbers in ascending and descending order. Moving on to the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) in various contexts, including the introduction of long division, where they will learn and understand the various processes of each of these operations and how to check they have made the right selection.
