Read on to find out what we will be up to this half term.



Here are some of the objectives we will cover this half term:

  • Place value
  • comparing and ordering numbers up to 1000
  • rounding numbers to the nearest 10 or 100
  • partitioning numbers in different ways
  • 2D shapes
  • statistics
  • written methods for addition and subtraction
  • daily times tables practice.



We will be reading a lovely story called ‘The Way Home for Wilf’. Here is some of the learning that we will be doing:

  • using and, but, or and so to link words and clauses
  • responding to and analysing the text
  • learning the story orally
  • using non-fiction texts to find about wolves as well as other animals
  • using our research on a different animal to write our own Way Home for Wilf stories.



Our topic this half term is light. We will be

  • recognising that we need light in order to see things and that dark is the absence of light
  • noticing that light is reflected from surfaces
  • recognising that light from the sun can be dangerous and that there are ways to protect our eyes
  • recognising that shadows are formed when the light from a light source is blocked by an opaque object
  • finding patterns in the way that the size of shadows change.



Our topic is Volcanoes and Earthquakes. We will be exploring how volcanoes and earthquakes happen, where they happen and the benefits and consequences of these natural disasters. 



We will be looking at the work of painter L.S.Lowry.



The value of rules and laws; rights, freedoms and responsibilities.



We will be looking at Harvest festival traditions around the world and what Christians and Jews believe the festival represents.
