The following information might be useful to you if you would like to help your child. Please talk to your child about what they have done in school and encourage them to do their own research around the topics they have been learning about in school.

 

Literacy

 

In literacy we will be looking at a range of fiction text types and we will be writing our own quest and adventure stories and poems. We will be working on varying our sentence structure by using clauses and we will be using a variety of punctuation including commas and speech marks. Our non-fiction work will include newspaper reports, non-chronological reports and instructions. We will look at planning texts, organising information, using sub-headings and writing introductions and conclusions. We will continue to work on spelling rules and strategies, handwriting and speaking and listening skills.

 

Some key indicators for success are:

  • draft and write in narratives, create settings, characters and plot with consideration for the audience and purpose
  • draft and write non-narrative material, using simple organisational devices
  • proof read for spelling and punctuation errors, including the use of the apostrophe for possession and speech punctuation
  • evaluate and edit own writing by proposing changes to grammar and vocabulary

 

Maths

 

In our maths lessons we will be learning efficient written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will be recalling the multiplication facts up to 12 x 12 and the corresponding division facts. Other maths work will include ordering numbers to 2 decimal places,rounding numbers and continuing sequences, converting measures, e.g. kg to g, m to cm, area and perimeter, properties of 2D and 3D shapes, symmetry, fractions and equivalent fractions, decimal numbers and multiplying and dividing numbers by 10 and 100.

 

Some key indicators for success are:

  • solve addition and subtraction two-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations to use and why
  • recognise and show, using diagrams, families of common equivalent fractions
  • convert between different units of measure e.g, kg to g; m to cm; litres to mls

describe positions on a 2-D grid as coordinates in the first quadrant.​
