Class Studies
Throughout this final term we are going to be refining our Maths and English skills. We will be focusing on spelling, reading and developing our sentence structure in English.  We will be improving our writing skills and increasing the quantity of work we produce whilst looking at different styles of writing.  We will be learning to write persuasively as well as write explanations and stories.  Ink slinging will now take place on a Thursday.  During our maths sessions, we will be revising our understanding of place value, use formal methods for addition and subtraction, look at graphs and what they show us and continue to learn multiplication and division facts.

The children are expected to read at least 3 times a week.  They need to work on their fluency and to be able to discuss what has happened already and to make predictions about what may happen.  The children should also practise their times tables and number bonds every day as well as reading the time from an analogue clock.

The first topics we are covering this half term will be light, map work skills and patterns .  After half term we will be learning about plants.  We are looking forward to visiting Whipsnade Zoo and Kew Gardens to help with our studies.
