This term we are learning...

This term we are learning:

Our topic this term is 'Marvellous Medicine and Terrible Trenches'.


English: Our class books this term will be linked to our topic. We will be reading Archie's War by Marcia Williams and War Game by Michael Foreman. We are using these texts following the Talk for Writing Process where children will be learning parts of the texts orally, engaging in drama activities, exploring different writing genres and creating their own wonderful writing. We will also be using a range of texts during Whole Class and Guided Reading sessions alongside 'Reading Vipers', our whole school approach to the development of reading skills. 

Maths: In the second half term, we are focusing on written methods of addition and subtraction. We will then be moving onto multiplication and division where we will be working hard to master our times tables.

Once a week, we do the 99 club challenge... a quick fire 5 minute challenge of our mental calculation skills.
