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, as well as making our sentences more interesting by using adventurous vocabulary. This story will allow us to practise describing characters and places, using adjectives and connectives to add interest to our sentences.
In maths we will be exploring place value to 20, looking at more, less and equal to. We will also be studying addition and subtraction.
We will be learning about representing numbers in different ways and comparing by matching. We will also be using number lines and number tracks to count forwards and backwards from any number.
In Science we will be learning all about Materials and their properties. Thinking about different scientific vocabulary used to describe their properties and why different materials are used to made objects, such as windows and rainhats.
We will also be thinking about how the seasons have changed and be looking for signs of Autumn.
Our theme is all about the Great Fire of London.
We will be learning all about this terrible disaster and thinking about why the fire spread so quickly. We will find out about how the fire was put out and how we know about the fire
