English and Maths
In class 1, our current topic is 'Traditional Tales'. We explore a different traditional tale each week to support our learning, love of reading and imagination. Throughout this topic, we will also be discussing some non-fiction texts and how these can support our learning. We are developing our oral storytelling and beginning to identify the features within traditional tales.
We follow the ‘Power Maths’ scheme which focuses on mastering key skills which will allow children to gain a secure understanding before moving on, thus building the foundations for future learning. During maths sessions, the children will use a variety of concrete resources and a variety of pictorial representations, as well as the abstract numerals that represent each number. This half term, we will be focusing on numbers to 10: addition, subtraction and number bonds. We will also be looking at creating patterns and measuring objects in a variety of ways.
