Topic

Reading will be taught through daily guided reading lessons and supported through the work children do in Phonics. In this term we will focus on predicting what might might happen next and why. We will be looking at lots of fictional texts to support our literacy work and some informational texts to support our topic work.

We will be doing some creative writing in literacy, using our imaginations to create stories. Some of our writing activities will be linked with our topic and therefore we will be  writing a non - chronological report. We will continue our hard work with spellings and handwriting. 

In maths we will be recapping our knowledge of place value. We will also be doing some more work on addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, doing some investigation work with measure, including length, capacity and mass and doing some more work on fractions.

This term our topic is Forces and Motion. Our topic work will be based on Isaac Newton discovering gravity. We will learn about what gravity is, how it was discovered and how it affects us. We will also look at other forces and motion in Science and Judaism in RE. 

 

 

Handwriting

 

We have been learning how to write letters with a lead in and a hook out to help us learn how to join our handwriting. Click on the pencil below to download, print and practise these letter joins.
