Gawthorne Class Reading Week



Welcome to the autumn term.


This term our Curriculum project is entitled ‘Here We are’.   We will be exploring the skills and knowledge needed:

-to use maps 

-to investigate what happens to materials when we heat and cool them

-to learn about globally influential people 

-to create our own music

-to understand the purpose of religious worship





This term we will be learning about how to write in narrative and non-narrative form. We will begin with a non-fiction text about a location mentioned in our feature text: The Ship Of Shadows. Later in the term, we will be focusing narrative, in particular on character and setting descriptions as well as how to include speech in narrative text. We will also be learning to write factual accounts of events, in a more formal tone.



We will be focusing on place value, number and calculation for the first half of the Autumn Term.  Children will be expected to be fluent at their times tables and be able to calculate using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. 



This term in Geography, we will be learning how to create and use maps. In art, we will be learning to draw using perspective skills and paint using colour mixing skills. We will be learning about the artist called Picasso. In RE, we will be learning about some globally influential people as well as about Christian worship and beliefs.
