We have been on an Autumn walk where we have reflected on God’s creation. We have looked at physical and human features in our school grounds and enjoyed exploring the grounds at this particular time of year. We will go for further walks in the winter, spring and summer and compare what we can see and what the temperature is like.
Throughout this topic we have made lots of links with Maths and Science. We have looked at the weather and how we can measure it; learning to use a thermometer, make a wind sock and measure rainfall. We have observed and recorded changes that we see from Summer to Autumn and will continue this into Winter.
In the second half of the Autumn term our topic question is:
Why can’t a meerkat live in the North Pole?
This is a Geography and Science based topic which will also link to Science work on materials and habitats.
How can you help at home?
• Learning the days, months and seasons,
• Encouraging your child to complete their daily phonics homework, to read regularly and to sign their diaries,
• Talking to the pupils about their learning,
• Trips to the library can also be a great help and we always welcome information brought in from home to aid our learning.
