What We Are Learning About - Autumn 1

In Religion, we will develop our understanding of the Christian duty of parents towards their children and children towards their parents. 

Throughout the year, children will be taking part in masses and services to mark their Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion. As part of their Sacramental journey, the children will be required to attend some Sunday masses throughout the year. Dates to follow.

In Maths, we will be looking at Place Value. Within this we will be focusing on ones, tens and hundreds by partitioning, comparing and ordering.

In Science, the children will work scientifically on a variety of quick challenges and longer tasks to learn about food and their bodies. This topic looks at where animals get food from and why it is important, and skeletons, muscles and joints.


In Geography, we will begin to understand the Earth better as a sphere, learning to rotate it mentally in 3-D. They will explore its representation in 2-D maps, and learn about the imaginary lines used (Equator, latitude, longitude, tropics and the International Date Line) to pinpoint global locations.
