Welcome to Barn owls!
Welcome back to the summer term! Over the next term in English we will be looking at poetry and rhyming, we will also be having a look at fairy tales and identifying all the main features to write our own exciting fairy stories based on the story of “The Billy Goats Gruff”.
In the following half term we will be looking at tales from other cultures and using as many different grammatical features in their writing as possible to demonstrate their ability to be great writers.
In math we will begin by learning all about statistics and look at different graphs and how to create our own tally chart, pictograms and bar charts. Following that we will then look at shapes both 3D and 2D shapes and their properties. We will investigate their faces, edges and vertices, look at different angles and lines and investigate where we find these shapes in the real world.
In the second half of the term we will investigate exploring change which looks at time – telling the time to the nearest fifteen minutes, half an hour and five minutes. We will look at measurement and capacity, reading scales and revise money problems.
