Maths:

This term we will be revisiting lots of the skills we have worked on throughout the year and during home learning to ensure we are confident. We will also learn how to divide numbers and recognise odd and even numbers. We will learn that division and multiplication are inverse operations and find fact families. We will learn how to count amounts of money in pounds and pence and will learn how to make the same amounts of money using different combinations of coins. We will apply our learning to solve real-life money problems to find totals and give change. In the second half-term we will develop our understanding of fractions, learning how to find half, quarter and thirds of shapes, numbers and objects. We will continue to learn the x2, x5, x10 and x3 tables.

 

English:

This term we will be writing recounts, stories, descriptions of settings, diaries and nonchronological reports, linking our work to our Jurassic Forest topic and lots of stories set with a prehistoric theme. We will continue to work on our spelling, grammar and punctuation and revisit commas in lists and learn how to use apostrophes for contraction (shortened words) and to show possession. This term we are excited to learn how to begin joining some of our letters! In reading, we will be working developing our comprehension skills to answer a range of questions about different types of texts, in particular answering questions about vocabulary and making inferences and predictions. We will continue reading the Mr Penguin series by Alex T Smith which we are really enjoying!
