“Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.”
― Jim Bishop


The first term is always the best in numeracy because we learn about place value. It’s amazing to find out how much each digit is worth, which digits within a number are worth the smallest amount and which are worth the most. We have had lots of fun solving problems and tackling reasoning activities related to this. We have also been taking part in the ‘Numeracy Ninja Challenge.’ These are daily challenges to increase the children’s mental maths ability across the curriculum.

In literacy this term, we are reading ‘The Stone Age Boy’ by Satoshi Kitamura. This has inspired us to travel back in time in our lessons and has inspired descriptive writing about the characters, settings and general life in the caves. The children have built different sentences using openers, adjectives, adverbs, and connectives. We have worked on our vocabulary using word banks. Take a look at the work that has been edited and improved by the children below

Look at our Progress in Autumn 2!


In science, this term, we have been studying rocks, how they are formed naturally and made by humans. we have also studied soils and fossils.


We investigated translucent, transparent and opaque materials. 

Skara Brae Models: History Topic

In topic this term, we were learning how the Neolithic people built their houses on the Island of Skara Brae. The children learnt how difficult it was to balance and co-ordinate the blocks as well as adding the grass on top to insulate the walls. 

Bronze Age and Iron Age

We used out history skills to create timelines and answer investigative questions.

Geography: Local Study of Pershore


We anaylsed Psalm 23 and looked for the images of God within this. The children then used watercolour to paint their own interpretations of certain lines within the prayer.

In our main art lessons, we have been studying the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo. He was an Italian painter best known for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of objects such as fruits, vegetables and flowers.
