Curriculum - Spring term 1

 

Maths

This half-term we will be focusing on:

  • Multiplication and Division

Here we will be working on the importance of equal parts and how multiplying makes the amount larger and dividing makes the total amount smaller.

Children will use hands on objects to multiply and divide.

Parents should support children by helping them learn their 2, 5, 10 and 3 times table.

          

We will also be focusing on:

  • Statistics

Here we teaching the children how to use and interpret tally charts, pictogram and begin to share what block graphs are.

 

               

 

English        

Our core text this half term is ‘Journey’ by Aaron Becker.  

 

We will be writing a story using this wordless story.

 

These are some of the key sills we will be teaching in writing:

  • expanded noun phrases to describe and specify [for example, the blue butterfly]
  • proof-reading to check for errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation [for example, ends of sentences punctuated correctly]
  • encapsulating what they want to say, sentence by sentence
  • start using some of the diagonal and horizontal strokes needed to join letters and understand which letters, when adjacent to one another, are best left unjoined
  • learning the possessive apostrophe (singular) [for example, the girl’s book]
  • making inferences on the basis of what is being said and done

 

In Reading Pupils will be taught to:

  • where necessary, apply phonic knowledge and skills as the route to decode words
  • read aloud accurately books that are consistent with their developing phonic knowledge and that do not require them to use other strategies to work out words
  • re-read these books to build up their fluency and confidence in word reading
  • talk about and answer questions about what they have read
  • recognise tricky or ‘common exception words’

 

Parents can support their child by ensuring children are reading their home reading books and regularly signing their reading record to comment on their child’s reading. Furthermore, all children have access to books which are suitable for their reading ability on ‘Bug Club’, children should be encouraged to read these books online.
