In English we will be studying the traditional tale The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The children will be identifying features of traditional tales and the types of characters we find in them. Once reading the book they will explore the character of the troll and write a character description. We will also think about how the goats felt during the story. As part of the unit the children will also explore setting descriptions and write their own. Once we have explored the original story the children will innovate their own version to write.
In Maths we will start the half term by completing some doubling and halving before exploring how we can count up in 2s, 5s, and 10s. The children will then move onto learning about simple multiplication using arrays and division using grouping. Following this the children will be learning how to measure length and capacity units non standard and standard units. We will also complete some more work on fractions using halves and quarters.
Characteristics of the four UK countries and London
In this unit the children will learn which 4 countries make up the UK. We will look at some maps to look at the main characteristics of the UK such as countryside, cities and other features. Towards the end of the unit the children will learn about London and what there is to see there.
In Science we will be exploring plants. This will mean identifying the features of plants and learning what makes them grow best. Towards the end of the half term we will go on a walk to look for the first signs of spring and growing plants in the wild.
