Autumn 1

Out and About

Theme Learning Question:

How can we compare the human and physical geography of Woodhouse Eaves with that of Mbale in Uganda?


Curriculum Coverage:

In Maths, we will be using Power Maths to help us understand in depth counting and addition within 10. We will be learning how to use a part-whole model to represent addition and how to record this using the plus and equals sign. Children will also learn how to use equipment to help them find number bonds within 10 eg. number bonds to 6 would be 0+6, 1+5, 2+4, 3+3, 4+2, 5+1, 6+0.


This half term in English, we will be using the Read Write Inc Phonics Scheme. Each day we have a phonics session to practise one of the set 2 sounds. The next part of the lesson is focused on a fiction or non-fiction book from the Read Write Inc Scheme. These are phonetically decodable to help children develop into fluent readers. The activities also involve comprehension, grammar and writing opportunities to cover the year 1 expectations for English.


In geography, we will be using the terms planet, continent, country and village to learn more about our local area of Woodhouse Eaves. We will identify the human and physical features in our village and the reason for them. We will then compare our village resources with one in Mbale in Uganda.


In Science, we will be looking for the changes that take place in Autumn. We will also observe and describe the changing weather associated with the season of Autumn, and compare this with winter. We will think about the changes we see in nature such as leaves on trees and hibernation of animals.
