Literacy

During the spring term we will be writing for a variety of purposes.

We will be studying the text the 3 little pigs, to relate our literacy to the materials topic. We will be innovating the story to create our own version.  We will be looking at different settings, writing character descriptions and looking at different sentence starters.  

We are always encouraging the children to use as many adjectives in their work as possible and to do their best Thoresby Handwriting.

Maths

In maths, we will be focussing on Place Value.  We will also cover the following operations,

Addition

Subtraction

Multiplication

Division

We will also investigate fractions we will identify different fractions and find and compare fractions of amounts.

During these topics we will be carrying out lots of science investigations.

We will launch the topic with a trip the the science adventure centre - Magna, where the children will be able to use interactive exhibits and see fascinating displays of the 4 elements.
