This term in Maths, we will be looking at fractions, shape, methods for addition and subtraction as well as how to use these to solve 'real life' problems.
Please practise times tables with your child at home as this really does have a positive effect on their ability to solve problems efficiently. You can also help them by practising telling the time and working with money.
Don’t forget to explore My Maths
In English this term, we will be looking at information texts. We will be exploring the different features, types and purposes of these. We will be identifying how non-fiction differs from fiction and how to write in this style.
We will also be focusing our learning on myths and legends to develop the detail in our writing. We will be looking at the use of more complex sentences and inclusion of adjectives and adverbs to make our fiction writing more exciting. We will also be preparing and writing our own mythical stories.
Don’t forget to explore the Bug Club:
