Welcome back to the Summer Term! We hope you all had a lovely Easter Break.

This half-term we have many exciting, interesting things planned.

In English, we are reading and writing about Traditional Tales, focusing on Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs. We will be using lots of drama to retell these stories and then writing retells and exploring characters and their motives. We will be continue to practise writing interesting sentences with good punctuation (capital letters, full stops and finger spaces) as well as using conjunctions, adjectives and interesting sentence openers.  This half term ends with a Traditional Tales Day where the children can come to school dressed as their favourite Traditional Tales character.

In Science, we will be learning how to classify animals into the five key animal groups (Reptiles, Fish, Amphibians, Mammals and Birds) and the key features of each classification category. 

In maths, we will be consolidating and mastering the children’s understanding of number facts and bonds within 20 as well as revisiting addition and subtraction strategies. We will continue to develop their number knowledge through games and starter activities. They will continue to count in 2s, 5,s and 10s, beginning to learn their multiplication facts and apply this to multiplication and division problems. 

In geography, we will be learning about the weather in the UK and how to record it and produce a weather report. 

Please see the curriculum bulletin for more information.
