During Autumn 1 we have been learning all about food and farming.
We kickstarted the topic with a trip to Whirlow Hall farm where the children participated in a variety of activities. These included: learning about the healthy eating plate, collecting the ingredients to make pancakes and a tour of the farm
Our literacy has been based around non chronological reports and linked closely with our Science. We have explored healthy eating and our teeth. We have also developed a set of instructions on brushing our teeth.
In maths we have looked at place value, addition, subtraction and division. We now know how to partition numbers into hundreds, tens and ones. We can also use the formal written methods column addition and subtraction. We have introduced division as grouping and looked at its relationship with multiplication.
In mental maths we are largely focusing on our times table knowledge.
Our topic work has included the digestion system, the skeleton and our teeth. We have explored ball skills in p.e and started Zumba for Children. Our artwork has focused on developing our colour mixing skills in preparation for art classes later in the year.
We can't wait to see what Autumn 2 brings us!
