We will begin the summer term looking at adventure stories. Our first story is 'Kidnapped' by Pie Corbett. The children will have the opportunity to hot seat a character, write a letter and write their own adventure story. They will practise using ambitious adjectives, adverbs and conjunctions to improve their writing which will make their story more exciting and using short and long sentences to build suspense. After that the children will be moving onto non-chronological reports. They will be linking their factual knowledge to our shadows topic and will be writing a report on lights and shadows. They will use titles, subheadings and paragraphs to set out their report. They will also use technical vocabulary and factual language to describe the topic to the reader. In the final two weeks the children will be looking at traditional poems. They will have the opportunity to explore and learn the poems and write some of their own poems using rhyme.
The children will begin the summer term learning how to multiply a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number using a formal method.
After that we will move onto division. Children will learn how to divide a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number using a formal method. Then we will look at fractions, children will have the opportunity to find the fractions of a shape and number, they will also learn how to add and subtract fractions with the same denominator. In the final 2 weeks we will be looking at time. Children will have the opportunity to tell the time to the nearest minute using analogue and digital clocks. They will also understand a.m. and p.m. times and 24 hour clocks.
