Autumn 2021 – What’s happening this term?
Firstly, we’d like to take this opportunity to welcome you to a new school year!
Mrs Collins (Class Teacher) and Mrs Wilkinson (Teaching Assistant)
In Autumn 1, our books are ‘The Tiger who Came to Tea’ by Judith Kerr, ‘The Naughty Bus’ by Jan and Jerry Oke and ‘Vlad and the Great Fire of London.
Across the school we have adopted a scheme of work called ‘White Rose Maths’. If you would like more information on White Rose Maths please visit https://whiterosemaths.com. Over Autumn term, we will be focusing on place value within 10, and addition and subtraction within 10.
At Dane Bank Primary School, we teach our Geography, History and Science lessons around a learning question for either each half term or term. Through this question we also link other areas of the curriculum e.g. music, art/design.
Science: Our learning question for this term is: ‘Why are humans not like tigers?’ We will be looking at parts of the human body, our senses, animal body parts and groupings.
Geography: Our learning question is: ‘What is it like where we live?’ We will be looking at using maps, differences between cities and towns, and amenities in our local area.
History: Our learning question is: ‘Why is London Burning?’ We will be learning all about the Great Fire of London.
