Spring Term 2 - Take One Book
Our focus for Spring Term 1 has a book theme - we will be exploring the poem 'The Owl and the Pussycat' by Edward Lear. We will use this classic poem to inspire our own poetry writing before then using the poem to inspire story writing and then writing playscripts of part of the story. Watch the video below for a fantastic version of the poem.
In English lessons we will continue to focus on writing super sentences throughout this term, making sure we punctuate them accurately and use interesting vocabulary. We will explore using different conjunctions to add more detail to sentences as well as using paragraphs to organise our writing on the page.
In Maths, we will explore length and perimeter before looking at fractions. We will continue to explore our 3x, 4x and 8x tables this term, becoming more fluent in rapidly recalling facts from these multiplication tables.
Use the videos below to help practice your 3x, 4x and 8x tables:
