Cloverlea Primary School

Inspiring children to care, learn and achieve

Autumn Term


Reading books will be changed twice a week. Please make sure that you sign and return your child's reading book to school each Monday and Thursday to be changed. For further guidance, please see the guidance at the start of our class page.



Homework will be phased in gradually and set each Thursday via our ClassDojo. This will include spellings, new vocabulary and a practical Maths activity/game.

Spellings will be tested every Wednesday in school.



During the Autumn Term, our PE days will be Monday, Thursday and Fridays. Please don't forget to come to school wearing your PE kits on those days. 



We will be exploring a variety of different genres.

Phonics - during the first half term, we will be re-viewing learning from Reception before moving onto Phase 5 graphemes.


Maths - We use Maths No Problem following the National Curriculum enhancing this with active maths lessons. 


Art - This term we will be looking at 'formal elements of art' including colour mixing. 


D&T - This term we will be exploring moving mechanisms and making a moving story book. We then hope to move onto making simple puppets.


Geography - We will be learning about hot and cold climates. We will be learning about where a meerkat lives (hot desert) and comparing it to where a polar bear lives (the Arctic). 


Computing - We will start by looking at internet safety before moving on to learning about algorithms.


Religious Education - We will be learning about 'who is a Christian and what do they believe?'


Music - Trafford Music services follow a fun scheme called 'Charanga.' 


French - Gulay (our French language assistant) will teach a fun introduction to learning French each Friday. 


Science - We will be learning about different animal groups including humans! We also explore seasonal changes.
