Autumn 1

This half term, our topic is 'Amazing Africa'!

We will be exploring a range of English texts that link to this topic, including: Meerkat Mail, Lila and the Secret Rain, Nelson Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. In Geography, we will be exploring the key characteristics of continents and how to identify them. In History, we will be exploring the life and legacy of key historical figures, such as Nelson Mandela. We will also be extending our learning about Africa even further into our Art and Music work. In Art, we will compare the landscapes of Turner with the landscapes of Ndichu-Njuguna. In Music, we will explore pulse and rhythm through the Carnival of the Animals. 


In Maths, we will be starting with our place value topic. Within this topic, the children will be counting and sorting objects, counting on and back from given numbers and comparing and sorting objects and values.
We will then be starting our addition and subtraction topic in which the children will revise number bonds to 10 and use part-whole models to practise addition and subtraction skills.


In Science, the children will be researching living things and their habitats. We will explore where animals live and why, whilst identifying a variety of common animals and their body parts.
