Autumn Term Curriculum 2020:

Scafell Curriculum Map 2020

Maths: We will start the year by focussing on number. We will be looking at very large whole numbers and using place value to read, represent, order, compare and round these numbers. We will also be looking in more detail at Roman Numerals and negative numbers. Once we are comfortable with this, we will be moving on to using numbers in the four operations - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. This will include lots of work on: factors and multiples; tips and tricks for quicker calculations; prime, square & cube numbers and the order of operations. Lastly, we will begin work on fractions, finding out how fractions of different types are related and how equivalent fractions can be calculated. We will also explore the relationship between improper fractions and mixed numbers. This will underpin our work on comparing and ordering fractions and using the four operations on fractions. Lastly, we will explore finding fractions of amounts.
English: A large amount of our writing this term will be linked to our topics. We will be writing a range of genres including recounts, instructions and explanations; as well as poetry and narratives. We have two guided reading sessions every week where the children will study a range of texts in detail and we will work on improving spelling, handwriting, punctuation and grammar during morning tasks and English lessons. This term we will be focusing on spelling rules and patterns e.g, ie before e, plurals and verbs. We will be learning about word classes; nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs etc and be revisiting our knowledge of the use of basic punctuation including capital letters, exclamation marks, commas and apostrophes to ensure we use these accurately in all our writing. Our class novel this term is: Stig of the Dump by Clive King .
