English

In English our main text will be The Tiger Child by Joanna Troughton

You can listen to the story here.
We will be using this story as we  focus on using capital letters, full stops, question marks and exclamation marks.  We will also be developing our ability to leave finger spaces, use our phonetic knowledge and form a neat  handwriting style.

This story will allow us to practise describing characters and places, using adjectives and connectives to add interest to our sentences.

Maths

In maths we will be exploring place value to 20 and beyond, looking at sorting and ordering.  We will also be studying addition and subtraction.

We will be learning about 2D and 3D shapes and their properties too.

Cross curricular work will mean that we are also looking at data handling, ordering events and using vocabulary related to time, such as days of the week. 

Mathematician

Christian Huygens

This man came up with the idea of the analogue clock face.
