Maths- Power Maths
In Maths we are following a scheme called Power Maths. Every child has their own practice book in which they complete tasks each lesson. During lessons, children are encouraged to discover and then share their thoughts with their peers about how they would solve mathematical problems and they are encouraged to reason and explain their mathematical thinking. In Maths, we will be using lots of practical resources to help the children understand concepts and to help them master the different areas of the Maths curriculum.
We will be mastering the following topics:
Addition and Subtraction
Multiplication and Division
We will be writing a range of genres based on our texts including: shape poetry, familiar settings and seasonal harvest creative writing.
Weekly English lessons will also include SPaG and comprehension tasks. Our guided reading book this term is The Iron Man by Ted Hughes.
Throughout the Autumn term we will be learning about the following topics in the different foundation subjects:
Science: Animals Including Humans
Geography: Local Study: Bowdon vs Styal
History: How riotous were the royals?
Art: Self portraits, observational sketching, Hindu art- drawing an Indian Temple
