Autumn One 


We welcomed the children back after the summer break with the Colour Monster by Anna LLenas. By using this book we looked at and discussed our feelings and things that made us feel in different ways. 



We are looking at animals and including humans. We will be revisiting the children's learning from year one about animals and building upon this. They will be thinking of life cycles, hygiene and exercise and what we need to survive. 



We will end the half term by looking at the artist Romero Britto, where we will look at his style and recreate out own art pieces. 




Our first unit will be place value to 100, building on what the children learnt in year one. They will be looking at how a two digit number is made from tens and ones, using objects to represent it, comparing objects and numbers. 




The Selfish Crocodile is our first book that the children will look at in year two. We will pick out new vocabulary, retell the story, write a description of the crocodile and innovate our own story.


Within our writing we will be thinking about:


  • capital letters and full stops
  • joining and as a conjunction 
  • expanded noun phrases eg. a fluffy, white cloud

Below is the knowledge for this half terms science unit.
