      Autumn Term Curriculum


      In our Maths lessons this term we will be concentrating on the following topics:
        • Count reliably up to 20 objects
        • Count on and back in ones from any small number
        • Read and write numbers to at least 10
        • Know one more and one less than numbers to 20
        • Use +, – and  = signs
        • Simple addition and subtraction
        • Number names
        • Doubles up to double 10
        • Recognise coins and find totals up to 10p
        • Name and describe familiar 2-D and 3-D shapes (square, cube etc)


      In our English lessons this term we will be concentrating on the following topics:

        Children will look at stories and rhymes with familiar settings or predictable patterns. They will read and follow instructions, write signs and make labels and lists.

        • Generate a list of rhyming words
        • Hear, read and write the beginning, middle and final sounds in simple words
        • Write simple words by hearing the sounds and writing the correct letter
        • Write captions and simple sentences
        • Recognise and start to use full-stops and capital letters
        • Continue to practise forming lower case letters correctly.




        Children will celebrate being in Year One! They will look at similarities and differences between themselves and others and will think about what they are good at and why. In science we will think about how our senses are used to help us and will consider how people who are blind and deaf might be affected. On the run up to Christmas, children will think about the religious significance behind this festival.
