Please have a good look at the subjects, topics and skills we are learning this year. Click on each term for the subjects covered.
This term we have started a times tables ‘100 club’ on a Friday. This is 100 times tables questions and the children are timed. Each week they compete against their own score to move up the ‘improved’ ladder. Please practise times tables at home too!
 

Encourage your child’s interest and curiosity by looking at books and websites together and talking about them.

If your child has some work to research, please help them, but without actually doing the work. If you have the chance to further their interest in the ideas of this theme please take it, as your enthusiasm and interest is most important.

By the end of the unit, we hope your child has achieved all of the learning targets. We hope they have had an enjoyable time in the classroom and we hope you have enjoyed seeing your child work with enthusiasm. If you have any comments about the work your child has done, please get in touch.
