This term the children will begin their Literacy by looking at some Michael Foreman stories and writing a range of sentences to improve their own story writing. They will then move onto myths and legends. This fits nicely into our Ancient Greek topic and gives children the opportunity to learn some Greek myths and the meaning behind them. We will then move on to looking at information texts, children will learn how to write a Non-Chronological Report and the features of this type of writing. Throughout the half term there will be a big push on spelling and the children’s punctuation and grammar. We will look at improving sentences by using adjectives, powerful verbs, adverbs and conjunctions.
In Numeracy, children will spend the first half term focusing on number and place value. We will begin the half term looking at number bonds to 100 and mentally adding and subtracting 1-digit numbers to 2-digit numbers. Children will also practise doubling and halving and multiplication and division facts for 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times table. Children will also order 2- and 3-digit numbers and solve problems using place value. They will then look at the days, weeks and months in a year and how to tell the time to the nearest five minutes.

Callum has been treating people equally this week and very kindly let another child use the smaller racer so he could reach, even though Callum couldn't reach on the larger racer either. Scarlett has been working independently in her maths and working really hard.
14.10.16 Matilda and Shaylen
Matilda has been treating people equally this week which has been noticed by all of the children. She always shares her things and likes everyone to be treated equally. Shaylen is always really ambitious in his Numeracy but this week in particular he has really shown off with time. We have been learning digital and analogue time to the minute and even though this is tricky, Shaylen has got on with it and done really well.
