Our Enquiry
This term, we will be answering the questions: 'What could my classroom be made of?' and "How can we help?".
We will be scientists, engineers. philosophers and artists.
We will be learning all about different types of homes around the world and animal habitats in those places too.
Our challenge at the end of our enquiry is to create a 'habitat diorama' for habitats around the world.
This term, as mathematicians, we will be learning:
  • place value
  • 2 digit numbers
  • reading and writing numbers
  • number order
Our focus continues to be on ensuring that the children know their 2, 5 and 10 times table. 
This term, as authors, we will be focusing on  stories and information texts.
We will be using headings, subheadings, captions and labels and in stories nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs.
The spellings for each term will be sent home at the beginning of each term.
