This Term's learning




Our autumn term's topic is

'The Stone Age'

This is a really fun and immersive topic in which children will learn lots about the people who lived during the stone age and how they survived over 10,000 years ago!

There are lots of fun, practical, exciting lessons!

(5.9.22) In English, we are reading the book The Stone Age Boy and UG's new trousers. Children will be introduced to different styles of writing, including diary entries, predictions and informative texts. 


They will immerse themselves into the stone age and learn about how they lived day to day they will be introduced to a variety of anachronisms whilst reading UG's new trousers.



(5.9.22) This term in maths we will be looking at number place value. Children will practice using base ten blocks within the hundreds, tens and ones column.

They will learn how to subtract and add numbers together using the HTO columns to ensure they are accurate!


By the end of the term, the children should be able to explain the relationship between a number and its place value.
