Wonderful World

This term's theme is 'Wonderful World'. 

Literacy and Phonics 

The children will all access a daily RWI phonics/spelling and a guided reading session. Literacy lessons will focus on ‘Stickman’ by Julia Donaldson. The children will be writing lists, exploring characters feelings and creating their own adventure for their Stickman. 

We will also continue to develop comprehension, spelling and handwriting skills.


History & Geography

We will be using maps to name and locate different cities and countries in the United Kingdom as well as finding out about significant people who have contributed to national and international events such as Edward Jenner, Mary Anning and Nelson Mandela.


The children will create a collage of a fossil, inspired by the fossils Mary Anning found. 



This half term in Science the children will be learning about the basic needs a human or animal need to survive. The children will also learn why it is essential that humans exercise, eat the right amounts of different types of food and why hygiene is important.



Our outdoor P.E. lessons will focus on team building and communication. Our indoor P.E. will be gymnastics.


This half term the children will be

learning to sing “Hands, Feet, Heart” a song that celebrates South African Music.


This term our computing unit is ‘We are Treasure Hunters’. In this unit the children will learn to program a robot to move around a map. The children will begin by creating algorithms for their routes and then input them into the robot.

Religious Education 

In our R.E. unit ‘Who is a Christian and what do they believe?' the children will be learning about what Christians believe about God, stories about Jesus and stories Jesus told.  


Our P.S.H.E unit is all about the different jobs people do in school, the need for and importance of rules and understanding the importance of being a responsible member of the school community.              


In Maths we will be learning to add and subtract one and two digit numbers as well as applying our knowledge to solve simple problems.


This website has many games to support learning at home - 


Throughout the year the children will be practising to count accurately up to 200, being fluent with number bonds to 10 and 20 and their number formation. It will be very much appreciated, if at home practice takes place to ensure numbers are formed correctly.
