Fairy Tales: We are looking at two fairy tales this half term. First we will work on Little Red Riding Hood and then Hansel and Gretel.
We will work on describing the characters, the settings and rewriting the stories.
The Great Fire of London: Our writing this half term is based on learning about History.
We will be learning about how the fire started, how it spread, how it stopped and finally how London was rebuilt.
We will be learning how to write a diary entry, a letter and a report.
This half term we will be learning about Place Value and Addition and Subtraction.
Place Value: The children we be learning about tens and ones and the value of each digit in a number. It is important that the children have a good understanding of this, as they will use this learning in other Maths topics throughout the year.
Children will learn to identify the tens and ones in a number, how to combine tens and ones to make a number and use vocabulary such as greater than and less than to compare numbers.
Addition and Subtraction: The children will build on their knowledge of the previous topic to begin adding and subtracting bigger value numbers.
The children will be shown two methods to show their working out: denies and number lines.
Children will learn to add and subtract a two digit number and ones, a two digit number and tens and two two-digit numbers.
