Week beginning 9th November 2020

Our focus this week is Autumn and the changes that we have noticed in our outdoor environment.

We will start our week with an Autumn walk around the school grounds and use a tick list to identify what we see.

The tick list can be found below, for your reference.

We will be drawing an Autumn scene to prompt us of signs of Autumn we will write about next.

There is a powerpoint presentation below to find out a bit about the season.

We will be writing a sequence of sentences about how we know it is Autumn and what you will see outside during this season.

We will be remembering to use capital letters, finger spaces, full stops and including some adjectives.

We will use the checklist on the title to check we have included these.

Can you use the words 'and' and 'because' to give more detail? 



We will be comparing two numbers - lining up two groups of objects and saying how many more/less there are. 

For example 5 and 7.

7 is 2 more than 5. 

5 is 2 less than 7.

The difference between 5 and 7 is 2.

There is a presentation to look at below and some difference questions to work on.

Autumn Art

We will be using watercolours to mix shades of Autumn colours- reds, oranges, yellows and browns.

The children will then use these colours to paint an Autumn leaf.


In class we will be working on the sounds: oo- look at a book, ar - start the car, or - shut the door

Our spellings focus on the sounds we looked at last week- igh, ow, oo

The spellings for the quiz on Friday are: high, sigh, tight, snow, blow, show, says, today

There is a phonics sheet below with words to read together. 



We will be drawing a picture map of our autumn walk and using a simple key to plot/draw the signs of autumn that we saw. For example, draw the leaves on the ground outside our class room and the evergreen tree at the back of the field.

At home- can you draw a map of signs of autumn you can see near where you live?

Can you read the attached sentences to add capital letters and full stops in the correct places?


We will be continuing with difference and comparing numbers. There is a powerpoint and sheets- please select one of the sheets that you feel is most suited for your child. They do not have to complete them all.
