This term our topic is SETTLERS. We will be looking at the settlement of Levenshulme.
This half term we will be looking at the Domestic church and belonging and Baptism.
In English we will be developing our reading, writing, spellings and grammar skills through a range of fiction and non-fiction writing opportunities - The focus this half term will be on Fairy Tale stories and play scripts. Key speaking and listening skills will be extended through role plays and drama.
Guided Reading sessions and reading across the curriculum will enable children to develop a love of reading. Please help your child by listening to them read for 10-20mins every night! Reading Records should be signed regularly and they will be collected every Wednesday for a member of staff to sign. Children can only change their reading books on a Wednesday, due to the current situation. If they forget to bring in their book to change, they will have to wait until the following Wednesday. All returned books will be placed in a box and left for a week, before being returned to the library.
In Maths we will consolidate children's understanding of place value, addition and subtraction. Children will be challenged to apply the skills learnt to gain a deeper understanding of the application of mathematical concepts in the real world.
Keep learning your times tables - You should know your 2s, 5s and 10s from Year 2!
