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:
Multiplication and Division
We will be writing a range of genres based on our texts including: non-chronological reports, explanation texts, adventure and mystery stories and recounts.
Throughout the Spring term we will be learning about the following topics in the different foundation subjects:
Science: Pond dipping and rocks, fossils and soil.
Geography: How powerful can nature be? (Volcanoes and Earthquakes)
History: How did Britain change between the Stone and Iron Age?
