In Autumn 2, we have lot of exciting learning opportunities happening!
Our subject areas are DT, Science, History, RE, Music, PE and PSHERE.
In Science, we will be exploring materials, exploring what they are made of and finding other things made with the same material. In History, we will be continuing to learn about ourselves and our immediate family. In Art, we are learning about primary and secondary colours, exploring colour mixing and preparing lots of lovely art pieces for our Art display. This will link with our DT, where we will make autumn sun catchers.
Our PSHERE this half term, we will be learning how to recognise emotions using facial features. We will talk about being happy, sad, tired and angry and use symbols to help the children to recognise the emotions and begin to explain how they are feeling. In PE, we will practise rolling and throwing a ball and catching it. In music we will use different instruments to play fast, slow, loud and quiet sounds.
Our texts we are reading this half term are Mr Gumpy’s Outing, Chocolate Moose for Greedy Goose, and then The Jolly Christmas Postman closer to Christmas. Alongside this, we will be sharing a nursery rhyme a week and practise sequencing the rhyme. This will be shared on Showbie each week. We will continue our work with Discovery Phase 1 Phonics, listening and recognising different sounds and oral segmenting and blending. During our Maths sessions, our focus on number skills will be to rote count to 10 and back from 5 using different number songs such as 5 Little Ducks, 5 Little Speckled Frogs and 5 Little men in a Flying Saucer. We will introduce and start to explore different 2d shapes in our different areas.
