In English, we will be looking at Traditional Stories! We will be looking at themes, similarities and differences and exploring alternative tales e.g. The True Story of the Three Little Pigs!

We will be writing for a variety of purposes and audiences to broaden children’s understanding that writing is important and it’s seen all around us. Children will be given the opportunity to be creative with their writing and continue developing their passion for reading and writing through story. We will be reading lots of inspiring texts this term as part of Guided Reading and ensuring the children’s comprehension is enhancing, as well developing inference skills and fluency and expression when story-telling.


In Maths, we will be focussing on Place Value for the first few weeks of term. We will be looking at two and three digit numbers, sniffing out number patterns and using our understanding of place value to order and compare numbers. We will also practice counting in 2s, 5s and 10s so that this becomes fluent recall!


Our topic this half term is 'Materials and their Everday Uses'. We will be looking closely at the suitability of different materials and carrying out a range of investigations to test their suitability. We wil be posing scientific questions and looking at different ways to find the answers!

A homework menu has now been uploaded onto ClassDojo. A piece of homework is to be uploaded every week. Class teachers will mark your child's homework electronically and feedback will be given. 

Reading Records are temporarily to be kept in school. Comments from Guided Reading and home reading should be added to your child's portfolio on ClassDojo. All home reads should be numbered so that we can keep track and the correct awards can be given!
