Key Stage One
In KS1 Maths we will be continuing to understand numbers and their value. We will be learning to add and subtract larger amounts using visual and written methods. We will also carry on learning the 2-, 5-, and 10-times tables and use them to make equal groups and learn about multiplication and division. In our maths fluency intervention, we are looking at numbers to 10. Each week with a different number to focus on and build our understanding to help the children use the numbers confidently. We will learn about odd and even numbers, making pairs and how to count in multiples.
In KS1 English we will be looking at several books. The first book is ‘Beegu’ by Alexis Deacon, a wonderful story mainly told through pictures. The focus will be on storytelling, writing and role play. Understanding feelings, emotions and making inferences about pictures will form a large part of the work. In the second half term, we will be looking at the book ‘Emperor Penguin’ by Martin Jenkins. This term we will look at leaflets, information texts and create a fact file about Penguins. The children also have daily Phonics and spelling and grammar lessons. The children will be using these skills to write simple sentences.

Key Stage Two
This term we will be looking at the book ‘Gregory Cool’ by Caroline Binch, a lovely story about a young boy’s experiences when visiting his grandparents and cousin in Tobago. The focus will be on making inferences about the pictures, writing a poem, comprehension and researching information about Tobago and creating a fact file.
This term the KS2 children will be continuing with multiplication and division. We will be developing the skills we learnt last term. We will be multiplying and dividing up to 3-digit numbers by 1 digit number. We will them be dividing a 3-digit numbers by a 1-digit number with remainders.
