Autumn Learning


Topic- Rule Britannia

During Autumn Term 1 we will be learning about the Great Fire of London. We will be learning about key events that took place on the night of the fire and the changes that had to be made to houses etc; after the fire took place. We will be looking at diary entries and different sources that describe the fire.  


During  Autumn Term 2  we will be looking into the Royal Family. We will be looking at the Royal family tree, more recent Royal history and the coronation of King Charles III.




In Mathematics we will be focusing on comparing, ordering and sorting numbers. We will use our understanding of number to count on and back in different amounts before looking at different ways we can add and take away. 


Children will also have one lesson a week solely focusing on Shape, Space and Measure. Children will also have one lesson per week focusing on understanding time and applying this in everyday life.



In English we will have a reading focus of "Sammy the Street Dog" and "The King's underpants". We will use speaking and listening activities to develop our understanding of the story. This in turn will support us when creating a narrative to the story and other activities based on the story. For example; using time conjunctions to create an instructional piece of writing. 


Later on in the term we will be looking at different poems on The Great Fire of London. Afterwards, we will create our own poems to preform. 



In Science, we will be learning about ‘Animals including Humans’. Pupils will be developing their understanding of the human life cycle, the needs of humans and the importance of healthy eating, exercise and hygiene. 



In Art we will be learning about Henri Matisse and creating our own art work based on his style of art.



In Autumn Term we will be focusing on friendships during our PSHE lessons. We will learn how important friendships are in making us feel happy and secure, how people choose and make friends, the characteristics of friendships and supporting others with problems and difficulties.

We will then move onto "Similarities and Differences". During this topic we will learn about respecting others, even when others are very different from them, making different choices or having different preferences and the importance of self-respect and how this links to their own happiness.



PE will take place on a TuesdayThis term we will develop the fundamental skills of balancing, running, changing direction, jumping, hopping and skipping. Pupils will be given opportunities to work with a range of different equipment.



In computing we will be looking at basic computing skills and understanding the different computer components. 



In Autumn children will be learning the song "Hey You". We will learn how to follow instructions on how and when to sing, make and control long and short sounds, imitate pitch and become aware of others when performing.



In Class 12 children will have daily reading and spellings. Spellings will be changed on a Friday. These will be checked each morning. If children are not completing homework on a regular basis they will read/complete homework with an adult at break time.



At The Grange we believe that it is crucial to work in partnership with parents and carers. There is an expectation that you will support us by ensuring that your child completes the tasks that we set as homework.


Obviously the level of your engagement will depend on your child’s age but we expect you to take an active part in all aspects of homework and where necessary, indicate that you have monitored the completion of it (e.g. by signing the Home/ School Reading Record Book).


The routines of reading everyday, learning spellings and multiplication tables etc. can be great fun and very rewarding for all concerned. Best results are achieved when homework is not done at the last minute but has a fixed time in a child’s established home routine. Short, sharp period of activity are preferable to prolonged periods of study where concentration can be lost.




If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to a member of staff. In addition, the children’s diaries will be checked and written in daily to inform you of any updates. Additionally please see below useful website to enhance your child's leaning at home.
