Our Curriculum in Autumn 1


Our first unit will be place value. Children will begin by learning how to count in 100s. They will learn that a 3-digit number is made up of hundreds, tens and ones and they will be able to represent this in many ways using eqipment and/or pictorially. They will extend the number line
to 1,000 and know where different numbers lie. They will use their place value knowledge to compare and order 3-digit numbers.

Our second unit will be addition and subtraction. Children will begin with adding and subtracting ones, until by the end of the unit they are adding and subtracting 2-digit numbers. Children will be introduced to a formal written method which they can use alongside their concrete and pictorial workings. 


This half term, children will use the book 'How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth' as a stimulus for their instruction writing. Children will explore the features of instruction writing focussing specifically on adjectives, imperative verbs and time conjunctions. They will then plan, write and edit their own instructions. 

Children will also use the book 'Stone Age Boy' to inspire their writing of a setting description.


This half term the children will be learning about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age as part of our topic Through the Ages. We will be discovering what life was like during these time periods including the challenges that the early humans faced. As part of our topic we will be visiting Cresswell Crags.
