This half-term we will be focusing on multiplication by looking at equal and unequal groups, adding equal groups by counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and making arrays. Also, we will be working on fractions, looking at halves and quarters of shapes and objects. Also, we will be looking at geometry and position and direction. We will also recap place value to 100. Finally, we will focus on measurement within money and time.

Our core text this half term is Lost in the Toy Museum.


We will be summarising a story, using adjectives to describe characters, writing a setting description, writing a character description, planning and creative a story and writing a narrative letter.


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

  • Common exception words
  • Forming letters correctly
  • Leaving spaces between words
  • Using capital letters and full stops
  • Using powerful adjectives.
  • Understanding what a noun and proper noun is.


In Reading Pupils will be taught to:

  • apply phonic knowledge and skills as the route to decode words
  • respond speedily with the correct sound to graphemes (letters or groups of letters) for all 40+ phonemes, including, where applicable, alternative sounds for graphemes
  • read accurately by blending sounds in unfamiliar words containing GPCs that have been taught
  • read common exception words, noting unusual correspondences between spelling and sound and where these occur in the word
  • read words containing taught GPCs and –s, –es, –ing, –ed, –er and –est endings
  • read other words of more than one syllable that contain taught GPCs
  • read words with contractions [for example, I’m, I’ll, we’ll], and understand that the apostrophe represents the omitted letter(s)
  • 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.
