What are we learning in Spring term?

 

Literacy

We will be exploring the following two texts, Traction Man, a graphic novel, and The Emperor's Egg, a nature story. We will be using a 'Talk for Writing' style approach alongside 'Power of Reading' to develop language, create story maps and develop our fluency in recalling key information and vocabulary from the texts that we read. 

 

Maths

In Maths we will be following the White Rose scheme which focuses on developing reasoning and fluency techniques. Every Maths lesson will begin with counting forwards and backwards and in multiplies. You could help your child by practising counting to 100 forwards and backwards, as well as in multiples 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s.

This term we are learning multiplication, statics, shape and fractions.
