Date 20.09.21
Curriculum area  We are learning to… 
  • We will introduce our topic text this week; Beegu.  
  • We were surprised to find a crash-landing scene followed by a time capsule last week out in the conservation area!  
  • For our writing this week, the children will be writing character descriptions of Beegu and record their favourite part of the story so far. 
 Whole Class Reading
  • As a year group we will begin our whole class reading sessions. Over the next couple of weeks, the children will answer a range of comprehension questions on their class’ chosen book.  
  • Buttercup and Amber = Pumpkin Soup  
  • Saffron and Lemon = Toys in Space   
  • The children will complete place value charts, ensuring that they are secure with tens and ones.  
  • We will be comparing objects using greater than and less than symbols. We will also compare numbers within a word problem for the children to solve.   
  • The children will be introduced to weaving. They will be learning to weave with paper before moving onto weaving fabric in the following weeks. 


Please note this is a basic overview of the planning for this week. It is impossible to cover in this outline all the learning that takes place during a week!  We also believe in listening to your children and responding to their interests and ideas therefore all our planning is flexible. Please note some of the learning will take place across more than one week and during some weeks the learning focus may not cover all curriculum areas.
