In English for this autumn term we will be looking at a short story called 'Sour' by Alyce Tzue.
The story begins with a young girl called Mara who dreams of becoming an aeroplane designer. She tries to create her designs into models and tests them to see if they will fly. Mara becomes despondent and is about to give up until she meets a tiny, five inch boy!
In guided reading we will be reading the story of; 'The Time Travelling Cat and the Viking Terror' by Julia Jarman. Children will use their skills to answer comprehension questions daily.
In Maths, we will begin by looking at place value; thousands, hundreds, tens and ones. We will use our knowledge of these to order numbers from smallest to greatest and using place value in calculations using addition, subtraction, division and multiplication.
We will be working on our times tables knowledge and learning new times tables by singing songs!
Times Tables Rock Stars and Hit the Button are excellent websites that you may be able to access at home for extra practice.
