What we will be learning…with top learning tips

Maths....Addition and subtraction, multiplication and division along with developing reasoning skills to help us solve simple worded problems involving all 4 operations.

Learning Top Tip – Use the maths tool kits and resources to support your learning and help you become a more independent learner.

Reading...Whole class guided reading to develop comprehension skills (understanding of the text) and improve fluency and word recognition. Being able to ask and answer questions about the books and texts we have read.

Learning Top Tip – Read questions carefully and look for clues within the text. Copy words and phrases carefully from the text when answering questions.

Writing….. Instructions linked to our science topic on habitats and newspaper reports linked to our history topic on flight. Our epic involving the fairies, Elvin and Blossom, also continues to be a theme running through the learning.

Learning Top Tip- Always read through your writing when you finish and check it makes sense. Check you have used the right punctuation and purple pen any mistakes.

GRAMMAR… This half term we will focus on the correct use of both familiar and new punctuation, including capital letters; full stops; commas in lists; question marks and exclamation marks. We will also explore different sentence types (statements, commands, questions and exclamations).

Science – A science day is planned for this half term to continue looking at different habitats around the world and why animals are suited to their environments.
