Autumn 1 Curriculum Focus:



Red Riding Hood- Character Description 

Should The Big Bad Wolf be sent to jail? - Discussion  




We follow the White Rose scheme throughout school.


Our first unit is place value. We are looking at numbers up to 1000, reading, writing, counting and comparing them. Finding 1, 10 and 100 more or less

and positioning numbers correctly on a number line. 



Science: Rocks and Soils

Geography: Rivers 

History:  Ancient Egypt  

RE: The Ramayana


PE:  Children should come to school in their PE kits on a PE day. Children should wear their colour T-shirt of the planet group they're in with blue shorts and trainers. Your child can wear their school jumper or cardigan or a plain sweatshirt (no logos please).

We are looking forward to taking part in some fundamentals of physical education. 


ART/DT: Any practical art/D.T. work will be undertaken on a Monday (3JH)/Friday (3D) afternoon. If you would like your child to wear an old t-shirt, shirt or apron to protect their clothes, please send one in to keep in their locker. Please make sure they can independently put it on and take it off. 


Computing: As we are working online a lot more these days, we all need to ensure that we are staying safe and understand how to do that successfully. 

Here are some useful websites and games that can help you to learn more.

 We will be creating animations using the programme 'scratch'


Please try to read with your child for 10 minutes every day. Short, daily reading is the best way to help your child progress in this area. The set days to change books for children who are not on 'fluent or free reader' books will be a Monday and Thursday in both classes.

Please note in your child's reading record when they have read to you and when the book is completed.  Children who are free readers can fill in their record independently but please still try to listen to them read regularly. 

 Reading records and books should be in school bags every day.


Please take a look at these helpful questions to discuss with your child as you are reading to further their comprehension.

Children do not need to change their book every week if they are still reading it. If they are still reading, please do send your child to bring in their library book every two weeks to be re-scanned. This ensures our system doesn't generate a late notice for them. 

Children can take up to two books out. 


Homework will be checked each week on a Thursday and spellings changed on a Monday for the new lists. 

Children should access Spelling Shed and complete at least 5 games per week. We will be working on our spellings daily, so practicing at home on Spelling Shed will support them further with this. 

Log ins and passwords are on the inside cover of their yellow reading diary. You will find a QR code and their passwords  under the title 'EdShed.' 


It will link to the spelling patterns the children are learning in class that week. This is online on Spelling Shed.

Please practise times tables using TT Rockstars.

Children should also access Times Tables Rockstars and Numbots for at least 30 minutes per week, ideally a few minutes a day of each program. 

Log in details are in the front of the children's reading records.


To access TT Rockstars, click here.        

Numbots can be accessed through the same password and supports number recognition and fluency.



MyMaths will be set as often as we can. We aim for fortnightly, but sometimes there are not enough homework activities on the site relevant to set. A sticker will be put in your child's reading record to indicate when we have done this or stuck on their jumper if they have forgotten their reading record otherwise they will come home with an orange folder with some maths inside. They should spend 20 minutes on this. They can then stop, if they would like to spend more time on it to finish it please write on the sheet how long they spend on it.
