ENGLISH


In English lessons we focus on traditional tales, chronological reports and instructions. We use Talk for Writing to help children learn stories and imitate the language they need to write their own story. 

This term we will be looking at:

A range of texts including various children's fiction books, non-fiction and some poetry.


We focussing on sentence structure, including capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. We are including adjectives in our writing and reading our work back to check it makes sense. We are using conjunctions, such as 'and', 'but', 'or' and 'because'. We are also working on handwriting and spelling ready for the children moving up into Year 2.

MATHS

 

 

Teaching and Learning in Maths follows our Oakhill planning document which teaches the four main areas in maths. These are Number and Place Value, Geometry, Measure and Statistics. Where possible, links have been made across the maths curriculum to provide children with as many opportunities as possible to apply their knowledge and understanding. 

 



Our topics

We follow the Alumno Curriculum and this is the base for all our topics throughout the year.

AUTUMN TERM

We will be looking at how the country has changed since the Queen's coronation and also the changing of the seasons and weather. The children will learn compass points and learn how to present a weather report.

SPRING TERM
We will be looking at the city of Stoke-on-Trent and how the city and the pottery industry grew. We will be looking at the importance of the canals and potbanks. The children will design a plate. We will then compare Stoke-on-Trent to Llandudno and look at how a coastal community is different from our own city.

 

SUMMER TERM

We will be looking different plants and animals. We will be learning about what these need to grow and how they grow. We will look at how our skeletons work and how they are different from other animals. The children will learn about the different parts of plants and flowers and what each individual part does.
