Welcome to Otter Class


Autumn Term 2


Welcome to our class page, where you can find information about PE days, homework and the learning we will be doing over the term.


Our learning question this term is linked to our PSHE topic.


What would you put in a memory box?


Can you guess what we will be learning about here and what our PSHE topic will be based on?


Within Maths this term, we will be focusing on Addition and Subtraction within 10 and Shape. We will use a range of practical resources to explore and solve different calculations.


In English this term, our fiction writing will be focused around the story 'Storm Whale' and we will also be writing Poetry based around the poem 'Firework Night'. We will be practising sentence structure, punctuation and using our phonics to support spelling.


In Phonics, we will continue to recap our set 2 sounds alongside learning our set 3 sounds. We will also use a range of phonics games to further demonstrate our understanding. We will read in groups daily in school with opportunities to develop our comprehension skills.


In History, we will be Discovering History and exploring what the term history means and how we explore it. In PSHE, we will be exploring myself and our relationships as well as looking at family and friends. In Art, we will be exploring Line and how we use different lines to create artwork. In DT, we will be making jam tarts and in RE we will be looking closely at Incarnation and focusing on the question 'Why does Christmas matter to Christians?'


We will also be taking time each week to rehearse for our Nativity performance which you will all be invited to in December.
