This term children will read a range of stories that raise issues, e.g. bullying, bereavement, injustice, etc. Some of these stories will involve people from other cultures and the dilemmas that they had to face. Non-fiction will be based on explanatory texts, and persuasive writing - adverts, circulars and flyers. We will also investigate information books linked to other curricular areas. Work will continue to improve reading and comprehension skills, speaking and listening, spelling and writing. Targets will include the appropriate use of punctuation and the addition of suitable connectives and adjectival phrases to add variety and interest to independent writing.
The children will continue work on ordering, rounding and comparing numbers up to 10,000. They will recognise and extend number sequences, solve mathematical problems or puzzles. They will use mental calculation strategies to aid the rapid recall of addition, subtraction, division and multiplication facts. We will also develop understanding of written calculation strategies. The children will use this knowledge to solve ‘real life’ and money problems, using one or more steps. They will work on problems involving measures such as capacity and time, including the 24 hour clock. They will use co- ordinates, compare and round decimals. They will compare and classify shapes and solve problems using data presented in pictograms, bar charts and line graphs.
It is important that children learn and regularly practise multiplication tables.
