English - This half term we will be covering a range of genres including Instructions and Persuasive writing. We have so far linked our instruction writing to our cornerstones topic 'Flow'. The children have so far looked at the features of instruction writing and have planned and written a set of instructions to make a fishing rod. The children enjoyed this activity immensely and loved that they could take their fishing rod home to show their family.
Maths - We are going to cover place value and addition and subtraction this half term. In place value we will be exploring 1s, 10, 100s and 1000s, partitioning and comparing numbers to increase our fluency skills.
