|This half term, will be continuing to read The Boy at the Back of the Class. As we study this text, 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.||The children will be continuing with the Talk for Writing scheme focussing on a ‘quest’ text. We will also write an explanation text about Earthquakes and Mountains linked with our Geography topic.|
|Maths||This term the children will build on their times tables knowledge from the Autumn term. We will continue to learn times tables until we have knowledge of all facts up to 12 x 12. The children can use the programme “TTRockstars” to practise. In the summer term, the children will take part in the government times tables check. MyMaths will be set each week so the children can practise the maths skills learned in school.|
|Number - fractions||Number - decimals|
We will solve problems involving increasingly harder fractions to calculate quantities, and fractions to divide quantities, including non-unit fractions where the answer is a whole number.
We will continue to practise the skills learnt last half term such as adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator.
|We will recognise and write decimal equivalents of numbers of tenths or hundredths. Then we will move on to dividing a one- or two-digit number by 10 or 100, identifying the value of the digits in the answer as ones, tenths and hundredths. |
We will apply the above knowledge by solving simple money and measure problems that include fractions and decimals to two decimal places.
