In Maths, we will develop our understanding of number and place value, addition and subtraction and money. In English, we will be reading lots of new texts including fiction, non-fiction and poetry.
In the Spring term, we will be delving into our ‘Best of Britain’ unit of work and discovering how British history has impacted our lives today. This includes learning about The Great Fire of London! In Science, we will be learning about different uses of everyday materials and living things and their habitats. In Maths, we will revisit shape, fractions and multiplication and division. In English, we will be writing a range of text types including; poems, instructions and diaries.
