This is an overview of our curriculum plan for the Autumn term.






We follow The Way, the Truth and the Life in our lessons.

Our current topic is The Commandments in which we are studying stories from the Old Testament and thinking about what a covenant is and how this applies to our lives.



The season of Advent begins on Sunday 27th November.

Have a look at this daily Advent calendar.




Most of our written work in English will be linked to a key text in each half term. We have class copies for the children to use whilst we read. class discussions will help to develop their comprehension and understanding of the texts.

Lessons on SPaG and comprehension will also take place each week.





 This term our main focus will be on number operations and fractions. We will make sure the children can confidently use the main operations and apply them to problem solving. There are many online websites that can be used to help them with their learning.


Times Tables

 Knowing your tables is essential. It is important to be able to recall facts up to 12 x 12 as quickly as possible.


All children have log-in details for Sumdog – an interactive on-line maths resource for learning.
