Maple Autumn 2

Autumn 2

Topic: Stone Age

This half-term Maple class is exploring all things Palaeolithic.



In English we are studying fables, and are writing our own innovated fables; poems with a structure, including limericks and writing persuasive letters about issues that matter to Maple class.



In maths we are developing our understanding of multiplication, and how it relates to times tables; written and mental multiplication; written and mental division; learning to tell the time and exploring 3D shapes.



This half term we are learning about diet and nutrition, and how to keep fit and healthy.



Our history topic is the Stone Age, and we are learning how archaeologists piece the past back together using evidence.



We are working towards our Arts Awards in Maple Class, studying the work of Vincent v. Gogh, and letting his work inspire our own painting.



We are learning to play ukuleles this half term, courtesy of More Music, and working towards putting on a performance of La Cucaracha for the winter production.



We are using laptops and iPads to research information about key topics.



The children will continue to have Physical Friday, where they will develop their dance and football skills this half term.
