Our topic this term is...


Rocking Royals 

We will be learning about significant monarchs from the past. We will be comparing the lives of individuals from the past with our lives today. We will be exploring the concept of chronology and using our understanding to place events on a timeline. 


We will be reading Steve Antony's series of books about the Queen and using this as inspiration to write our own recounts about the Queen's Handbag, which we will turn into our own News Broadcasts.

This term we will be looking closely at our methods for mental and practical calculations. We will be exploring the language of addition and subtraction as well as increasing our mental fluency. We will start exploring Multiplication and Division by investigating equal groups and remainders. We will also be learning to tell the time using o'clock and half past.                       

During our daily CLIC sessions, we will be focusing on our basic number and calculation skills and how to use them to support the rest of our maths learning. On Fridays we will be taking part in ‘Big Maths’ which will help us improve our independent mental maths skills.



We will be learning about plants. We will be exploring how plants grow, what their charcateristics are and how they are similar and different. Of course we will be growing our own seeds and bulbs and observing them over time.  




Your child will continue to learn Phonics in Big Reading sessions and in dedicated Phonics sessions each day. 




We have recently started to use our brand new phonic scheme - Monster Phonics! Keep an eye out for all of the different Monsters who are responsible for their own sounds.Image result for monster phonics
