What We Are Learning About - Autumn 1
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud."
1 Corinthians 13
Our first topic in Religion is “Loving”, we will review how we are all made in the image and likeness of God and how this allows us to develop an understanding of what love is. We will examine the love and care we show to others through scripture, asking big questions and self-reflection. We then move onto looking at unconditional love, what this means to each us on a spiritual level and examining how God’s love for us all is unconditional and never ending. We will use the parable of the Prodigal Son to enhance the learning and understanding of the topic.
At the beginning of this term we will be reading the book “Holes” by Louis Sachar. The children will fully immersed into the text through a range of activities and will be writing a letter home at the end of our writing journey. We will also be reading “Can you see me?” and working on our reading skills through a variety of methods, focusing on the VIPERS style questioning.
We begin the year focusing on the foundational skill of place value. The children will continue to improve their knowledge of number though manipulation of number when partitioning, reading and writing number, round and working with the powers of 10. We will use this knowledge and apply it to a variety of question styles, concentrating first on fluency and then progressing on to reasoning and problem solving questions. As always we promote oracy in this subject and the children will be using this skill to explain to their peers, how and why they have used methods, ultimately furthering and imbedding their learning.
