Dear Parents/Carers,

Autumn Term 1 Information

This half term our topic is ‘Living Things’. We will be learning about what makes something a ‘living’ thing and exploring different habitats.

Our art work will be based on the work of Franz Marc. The children will create textile paintings of different animals using vibrant colours, shape and patterns. They will also make their own animal with moving parts by using a range of equipment and tools.

Our English work will focus around the story – ‘The Night Gardener by The Fan Brothers”, the children will use this book to help them write a diary entry from the perspective of the night gardener and setting descriptions of their chosen illustrations.

In our RE lessons we will look at the Christianity and what it means to belong.

In Science we will learn about living things and their habitats.We will observe changes across the four seasons and create our own food chains.

The children will have PE on Wednesday and Friday afternoons so please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school all week.

Reading – Books will be changed daily if you have signed and dated that your child has read at home.

If you have any queries please make an appointment to see us and we will be happy to help.


Miss Newsholme and Mrs O’Sullivan
