|We will be using three different texts to drive our English lessons next half term.|
We will be studying Alvaro Villa’s ‘Flood’ and Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith’s ‘The True Story of the Three Little Pigs’ as our narratives and we will be studying ‘Poems Aloud’ by Joseph Coehelo.
As we study these texts, the children will be practising their ability to retrieve key information from texts, use evidence to draw inferences about characters and use evidence to support their responses to questions.
|We will be writing in a range of genres, including a scene description, a story summary, a newspaper report and a river poem. We will focus on choosing appropriate language and grammar for the text types and editing to improve the writing.|
|Maths||In maths, we will begin by consolidating and building upon our learning of multiplication and division from last half term. The children will then explore recognising and using money, using and reading simple charts and graphs and finding and calculating length and perimeter. Finally, the children will look at fractions, including recognising and counting in these.|
