Spring 2024

English:  

We are looking forward to focusing on two wonderful texts with the children this term.  For the first half term we will be reading ‘Stone Age Boy’ by Satoshi Kitamura. We will be writing our own adventure stories, and a non-chronological report. For the second half term, we will be reading ‘Big Blue Whale’ by Nicola Davies and focusing our poetry skills, letter writing and creating infromation texts. Alongside this, we have weekly 'Pathways to Read' lessons where we will be reading ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes and 'This Morning I Met a Whale' by Michael Morpurgo. These whole class reading sessions are designed to really expand the children's reading skills and develop their comprehension and understanding of the texts they encounter. 

Here is the overview of books we will be reading as a stimulus for our English lessons:

Maths: 

For the beginning of this term we will be continuing with multiplication and division, focusing on multiplying and dividing 2-digit numbers by a 1-digit number, using times tables knowledge and formal written methods. This will be followed by a unit of work on measurements where the children will learn how to measure length in m, cm and mm and also compare lengths, solve problems and measure the perimeter of 2D shapes. The final part of the spring term will see the children exploring fractions, mass and capacity.

Don't forget to practise, practise and practise those times tables!
