This half term in Maths we will be exploring 'addition and subtraction' - extending our maths skills by understanding different strategies to add and take-away.
We will be looking at counting on, whole and part relationship and breaking numbers into tens and ones. For example 36 is 3 tens and 6 ones.
The children will be using these strategies when introduced to the more formal column addition.
In English and Topic, we will be finding out about planting seeds.
Our main focus in writing will be using phonics to sound out words and learning how to spell key words. The children are now expected to be able to write a sentence which includes the words and, so or but. We have been learning the story of Jasper's Beanstalk from which we will be creating our own stories.
Our Growing topic has started off in and exciting way- Jasper the cat has left us some seeds. We will be looking after them carefully to see what they will grow into. Will we get any doughnut plants?
