Each term the children will be working towards achieving different learning challenges. Our first learning challenge is to identify how we can create a gallery of important people so that we can celebrate people’s achievements and how they made a difference. Our hook to this challenge will be our ‘Famous person’ dress up day on Friday 8th September and our visit to the Birmingham gallery on Tuesday 12th September.
This half term the children will be exploring ‘Materials’. The children will be identifying different materials and exploring properties to describe these.
For the first part of the half- term in English we will be innovating stories with a journey with a focus on different word classes and using a variety of punctuation including inverted commas.
We will also be exploring different SPaG terms and working towards cursive handwriting.
This term in maths we are working with numbers to 100. We will be exploring place value through partitioning as well as recapping number facts to speed up mental calculations.
