Autumn Term 1

'Around The Med in 80 Days'

Our first theme in Lower Key Stage Two is inspired by Jules Verne's book 'Around the World in Eighty Days' however we will instead be travelling around the Mediterranean Sea, visiting each country in turn. This will be a primarily geography-based theme although there will also be learning opportunities in history, art, DT, dance, music, literacy and maths.

Literacy and Language


Our first unit this term is set around a story about a sand castle competition! We will be exploring how to create mood and capture feelings in our descriptions as we try to write our own mini beach stories. We will also continue to develop comprehension, spelling and handwriting skills.


Our first class text is 'Wilf the Mighty Worrier'. This book is a light-hearted and comical story of a boy who saves the world from disaster one worry at a time. 


In Maths lessons this term, we will be focusing on number, place value, rounding, times tables and calculations.

At home, please focus on the 3 and 4 times tables at home when practising, whilst revising the 2 and 5 times tables.
