For the first part of the Autumn term, the children will be learning all about London. We will explore maps of London and highlight key geographical features of London. We will explore famous landmarks and aim to answer all of the questions which your children will have regarding London.

In the second part of the Autumn term, we will become historians and find out key dates and facts regarding a famous historical event in which happened in London.... The Great Fire of London. We will develop our historian skills to ask who, where, when, how, what and why to further develop our understanding of the famous event which changed London. 

KS1 Termly Overviews


Please practise many skills in maths such as counting, representing numbers with amounts, number bonds to 10, doubles, number bonds to 20 and times table facts (x2, x5, x10, x3, x4) Playing games for these key skills in maths at home will help your child to become more fluent and give them an advantage!

Some useful sites…




Some of your children (Year 2 mainly) will also have a Times Tables Rockstars login and we would strongly advise that your children access this as often as possible to build up their knowledge and fluency with their times tables. 


We would like your children to read at least 3 times per week. The children will receive an incentive in class and move around our 'Rainbow Reading' display to land on the 'pot of gold!' 


Redwood Class Weekly Spellings

Spellings will be given out on Monday and tested on Friday.


Please make sure that your child has their full indoor/outdoor P.E kit in school. Also make sure that your child has taken out their earrings. P.E will take place on a Thursday.
