We are looking at ‘Buildings’.


  This topic looks at different types of buildings and the material used to make them.


In History, we will be looking at how buildings were made in the past and learning about the history of the Great Fire of London.


In Georgraphy, we will be learning about different houses, homes and other buildings around the world.


In Science, we will be looking at different materials used to create the structure of houses now and inthe past.




This term in Maths we are learning about calculation strategies within 20 and time. We will use our number bonds within 20 and resources to support our learning. We will also be learning about how to read time and begin to measure and record time in minutes, hours and seconds.


Did you know you could really help your child by making sure that they can recall their 2, 5 and 10 times tables and addition and subtraction facts within 20?
