Knowledge Organisers

What are knowledge organisers?

Knowledge Organisers show the basic knowledge we want all children to have learnt through a topic. These are used in class as a tool to help children recall information. Please look at these with your child at home as well - they are a great way to find out more about what your child is learning. For more information click here to download our parent letter about knowledge organisers.

Please check back after October half term for our first Knowledge Organiser.

Our Learning


Our first RE focus of Autumn term is Creation.

We will be learning about God’s love for us, how he created the beautiful world, how we can help care for our world and how we are all different and special. 



We will assess all the children’s current phonics knowledge in order to teach them in small groups based on their ability.

Daily phonics lessons will continue as well as regular reading in class. We will send home a pack of phonics flash cards at the start of each new phase. We will then update tapestry weekly with what sounds your child has been learning, in order that you can support your child’s learning at home.

Below are some links to websites that provide games to play at home as well as support and information on helping your child with phonics.

English and Topic

Our English and topic work this half term focuses around the book ‘Here We Are’ by the author Oliver Jeffers. The books is a guide for living on planet earth. It begins by looking at earths place in space, then the features of the world, before looking at individuals and communities , animals, different environments  and who there is to help you. 


We will explore the text and respond to it through writing, drawing, painting and our play. 


This term we will complete baseline assessment on the children and then plan our initial maths learning on this. 


Our initial focus will be on numbers to 10 for Reception and 20 for Year 1. We will then look at calculations - addition and subtraction, focusing on one more one less for reception and written number sentences for year 1.
