Bonjour! We have started to learn some French. We know how to say hello, how are you and good bye. We also spent a lesson focusing on France and we looked on the map at all the different cities there are. It was interesting to find out which other countries speak French as well.

In DT, we have been thinking about healthy eating including seasonal fruit and vegetables. We started the topic off by making some very yummy fruit skewers!
Autumn 1 - Sneak peek into our learning!
We will begin the year by focusing on place value, followed by addition and subtraction. We will be using lots of practical resources to support our learning as well as using times table rockstarz to learn our 3,4 and 8 times tables.
In History, we will learn all about the Stone Age to the Iron Age. We already had a quick look at the Stone Age during move up day where we enjoyed creating Stone Age cave paintings using the same techniques they did all those years ago.
We start the year off by looking at the Creation Story and what this means for Christians. we will be exploring the Big Frieze and discussing what is wonderful in our world.
Our first PE topic will be orienteering. We will be using maps, coordinates and symbols to navigate ourselves around the school field.
In Science, we will be looking at fossils and rocks. We learn how fossils are formed and also all about different types of rocks and what they are used for.
Doesn't that sound exciting?!
