The Hub curriculum

Welcome back to The Hub for the Autumn term,

This term we will explore our world through getting outside and learning all about plants, how we can grow our own, and add a splash of colour to our school environment. We will be looking closely at maps and learning where countries, oceans and cities are. We will also be learning about how London grew to be the city it is today.

Other areas of learning will include building relationships and getting to know each other. Also learning about the special relationship Jewish people have with God. While Art focuses of the work of Andy Warhol and recreating work in his style.

Reading and Writing are the key elements of our teaching in The Hub and we will be beginning the Autumn term with the story of the Secret Garden, moving onto The Diary of a Killer Cat. We will also be enjoying listening stories for pleasure daily.

Maths will  focus on number bonds, times tables and the four operations. We will be putting our measuring and weighing skills into action through gardening, PE and cookery sessions.

PE will be on a Monday afternoon and Computing will take place on Wednesday afternoons.

We really love to hear about all of the exciting books, non-fiction text and poetry your children read at home and welcome any comments from the children, parents or carers about what has been read. The expectation of reading a minimum of three times a week has an excellent impact on reading stamina and creative writing in school.

Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Whiteford
