We will be looking at fire safety and how to stay safe around fireworks and open flames. We will also be looking at Online safety: follow the digital trail to ensure we stay safe online. Alongside this we will have one emotional literacy/theratime lesson per week focusing on skills such as motivation, empathy, self awareness, self regulation and social skills. 


To start with, we will concentrate on shape poems linked to bonfire night. After this, we will concentrate on remembrance day. Next, we will explore a new story ‘ In every house, on every street, Jess Hitchman’ We will focus on reading with comprehension, narratives and support for reading and spelling using Little Wandle phonics. 


At the beginning of the half term in maths we will be focusing on place value to 10,20, 50 and finally 100. We will look at how numbers are formed and the composition of a number. We will then move onto addition and subtraction. Within the half term we will also complete learning about shapes and their properties as well as times tables.


In science this half term we will be learning about materials. We will begin by comparing and grouping materials based on their properties. We will then carry out investigations observing change of states 


During geography this half term, we will be focusing on our local area. We will find our area on a map and then  carry out some research on Hunslet . After this, we will visit some of the places within our local area using our map skills.
