Spring 2023

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 stories, and a non-chronological report. We will be reading ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes for our whole class reading sessions where we will really push our reading skills and comprehension. On the second half term we will be reading ‘Big Blue Whale’ by Nicola Davies and focusing on poems, letters and writing an information text, alongside the text, 'This Morning I Met a Whale' by Michael Morpurgo. 

Here is the overview of books we will be reading:

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. Children will learn how to measure length in m, cm and mm and compare lengths, solve problems and measure the perimeter of 2D shapes. We will also be learning about fractions, focusing on what a fraction is and how to write them. Work on fractions will continue into the Summer Term. Finally, we will be learning about mass and capacity. The children will also continually work on their times table.

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