*Please try and listen to your child read every night and return their books and reading records to school daily.

In English we will be studying the book Zog by Julia Donaldson.  We will be exploring the characters and plot of the story, making predictions based on events and asking questions to find out more.  Once we have explored the story the children will be innovating the story to write their own version.

Following our work on Zog the children will be writing instructions.  We will do this by exploring how tasks have to be completed in a sequence and the words we use to show this when writing.

In Maths we will start the half term by revisiting place value.  We will focus on counting up to 100 forwards and backwards from any given number.  The children will also spend some time practising reading and writing a range of numbers.  We will revisit our work on one more and one less and extend this further by finding out what is ten more and ten less.  After exploring numbers further the children will be once again practising their additions and subtraction skills.

 

The Great Fire of London

In our History work this half term we will be exploring the events of the Great Fire of London.

 

Science

In Science we will be exploring the human body.  We will name body parts and explore what makes us different from one another.  The senses will also be a focus and the children will explore how important our senses are to everyday life.

Subitize Rock (soo-bi-tize) | Math Song for Kids | Jack Hartmann

Subitize to 10. Subitize is the ability to tell the number of objects in a set, quickly, without counting. Subitizing develops math fluency, when students recognize sets without having to count each object and it helps develop number sense and the ability to perform mental math.

Here are our Days of the Week and Months of the Year songs.
