St Anne's Infants' School


Reach for the Stars

Term 3

Author Writer

This term, we will continue to improve our writing skills (as below) in various contexts.  Our story this term will be The Man on the Moon


Term 1 & 2 Milestones- we will continue to work on these milestones:

  • Write sentences using full stops and capital letters with spacing between the words.
  • Form correctly sized and orientated lower-case letters, capital letters and digits
  • Use co-ordinating conjunctions to extend sentences (e.g. so, but, and)
  • Use the noun phrases to describe and specify people, places and things e.g. ugly dragon/old castle/beautiful butterfly
  • Use subordinating conjunctions to add extra information (e.g. if, that, because, when, or)
  • Write about more than one idea and group related information and write coherently e.g. ordering information into simple sections with 2-4 related sentences, writing makes sense to the reader.

Term 2& 3 Milestones- our new milestones:

  • Use accurate verb/tense e.g. we were not we was and subject /verb e.g. the trees are not the trees is agreement
  • Use the progressive form in present and past tense e.g. I was running/we are running
  • Write sentences with different forms: statement, question, exclamation, command e.g. ensure you have exclamatory phrases – What big ears you have grandma!
  • Use commas in lists e.g. the angry, hungry giant wanted his tea.
  • Demarcate sentences consistently using question marks and exclamation marks e.g. here, exclamation can be used for indicating emotion as well as in exclamatory phrases – It was amazing!
  • Use apostrophes for contracted forms e.g. don’t, I’m - spelt correctly
  • Use apostrophes for singular possession e.g. Tom’s football - spelt correctly



As Mathematicians, we will be exploring division, time and fractions. We will be continuing to work on re-calling and using multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables and using known facts to problem solve and reason. When telling the time, we will be focusing on o'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. We will then move on to telling the time to 5 minute intervals. 



Our new enquiry is called ‘What is Home?’ As scientists we will be exploring and compare the differences between things that are living, dead and things that have never been alive; identifying and naming a variety of plants and animals in their habitats, including microhabitats.  As geographers we will be using world maps, atlases and globes to identify the UK and its countries, continents and oceans; we will use simple compass directions (NSEW) and locational and directional language to describe the location of features and routes on maps; we will use aerial photographs and plan perspectives to recognise landmarks and basic human and physical features; we will devise a simple maps and use & construct basic symbols in a key; we will use simple fieldwork and observational skills to study the geography of the school.
