Welcome to

Whissendine CE Primary School

Out Of This World - Term 1

Out of this World

We begin our learning this year with the theme Out of this World. Children will travel the galaxy, learning about the wonders of our solar system and space travel. They will develop their ability to think scientifically and ask questions about the world around them. In Phonics, children will learn ‘speed sounds,’ linking sounds to letters as well as learning how to segment and blend sounds for reading and writing. In Mathematics, we will focus on understanding the number system and consolidating our knowledge of numbers. We will also explore shape and measure, focusing on recognising and continuing repeating patterns.


The key books we will be reading are:

The Smeds and the Smoos by Julia Donaldson

How to Catch a Star by Oliver Jeffers

The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers

Whatever Next! by Jill Murphy

Welcome to Alien School by Caryl Hart and Ed Eave
