Literacy and Maths

Our focus this half-term is Myself and Others and is all about health, well-being and different cultures. We will be looking specifically at Indian folk tales and the book Pattan's Pumpkin by Chitra Soundar. We will write stories with descriptive settings, instructions, poems and posters and use our Drama strategies to inspire and engage us.

In Maths, we will be developing understanding of place value through counting, comparing and representing numbers. We will also be adding and subtracting one, two and three-digit numbers sometimes crossing a boundary of ten.
