Our topic this term is about prominent women throughout history and the modern day that have fought for their rights, worked hard to be treated equally and made great strides in fields like science, politics, sports, literature and art. Our topic is inspired by the 100th anniversary of women getting the vote for the first time and two amazing books brought in by a member of the class.
As part of our English lessons, to begin with, we will be reading stories from Beatrix Potter and identifying why her books are still so popular today. By unpicking her formula for a 'great story', we will then be writing and illustrating our own stories to share with Oak Class (our audience) and developing them further by animating them as part of our computing topic.
In maths, we are currently learning all about fractions. We are continuing to develop the use of the concrete, pictoral and abstract model of learning that develops a deep and sustainable understanding of maths in pupils. We will also learn about measurement, geometry (shape position and direction) and stastistics. We will also continue to consolidate our learning of number to generate greater depth.
Please continue to encourage your children to learn their times tables. A little and often approach is the best way to ensure secure knowledge of the multiplication and division facts and can be practised on the TT Rockstars Website.
