Topic – Off We Go!

Our topic for this half term is entitled Off We Go! We will be learning all about transport and maps as well as finding out more about our local area, including Atherstone and nearby towns and cities.


We are starting the term by reading the story of the Jolly Postman. The children will be reading the story and completing lots of activities about the book.


This half term, we will be focusing on the place value of numbers up to and beyond 20. We will be learning how to represent these numbers in different ways and how to compare and order them. We will teach the children how to solve problems involving the place value of numbers.


We will be learning about the different seasons and how the weather changes throughout the seasons of Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer. We will also be conducting weather experiments to find out more about the wind and the rainfall during Autumn.
