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 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 as a stimulus for our English lessons:

Maths

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 one digit number, using times tables knowledge and formal written methods.  We will then have a week focusing on money. The children will learn how to add and subtract amounts of money to give change, using both ‘£’ and ‘p’ in practical contexts. Next we will be focusing on statistics. The children will learn how to interpret and present data using bar charts, pictograms and tables. They will also learn how to solve one-step and two-step questions using information in bar charts, pictograms and tables. This will be followed by three weeks 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. Finally, we begin learning about fractions, focusing on what a fraction is and how to write them. Work on fractions will continue into the Summer Term. The children will also continually work on their times table– - please continue to practice 3,4 and 8 times tables at home with your child.

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