Swift Class Autumn Term Learning!

Welcome to Swift Class

 

Hello,

I hope that you all had a fantastic summer and a good rest. Me and Mrs Warner are really excited to meet you all on Tuesday. In our first week we will be coming up with class rules and supporting the children to settle into their new classroom environment.

This is an outline of the things that will be taught in the Autumn Term:

English-  Through our study of a fiction texts we will develop writing simple sentence using patterned language, words and phrases taken from familiar stories. The children will write labels and simple first person recounts based on personal experience, using adverbs of time to aid sequencing. They will read, write and recite familiar poems by heart.

Science-  Our topic is ‘Animals including humans’ the children will identify and name a variety of common animals including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. They will identify and name a variety of common animals that are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. Then name, draw and label the basic parts of the human body and say which part of the body is associated with each sense.

ICT-  Our topic is ‘Let’s Create’ Children begin to explore digital texts, using varied devices and software to create digital content.  They investigate differences between input and output and hardware and software.  They explore the idea of a network related to computers at home and school, logging on to their area with support. They use unplugged computing approaches to explore the devices they use.

History- In History the topic is ‘Ourselves’ the children will look into changes in their lives, families and others.

Geography- In Geography we will be looking at ‘Journeys’ through distance, fieldwork and developing observational skills and reading maps.

Music- In Music the children will be uses voices expressively and creatively by singing songs, speaking chants and rhymes.

PE- In PE we will cover yoga, aerobics and our dance is linked to Christmas.

Jigsaw- In Jigsaw we will be looking at  ‘Being Me in My World’ firstly, we will establish our classes and will be doing much of the; welcoming, class social bonding and getting to know each other, introducing the new systems, expectations and routines.

RE-  Mrs Humphreys will be teaching RE the children will be studying the religious festivals of Christmas and Diwali.

French-  Madam Lawson will be teaching French the children will be learning  the animals names, number names, families members and to greet in French.
