Literacy

During English this term we are learning about writing adventure, non-chronological reports and biographies of famous people. The children have written wonderful poems about Beech trees which are on display in the classroom. The children will also be creating a biography of Enid Blyton after looking at good examples of biographies from a range of famous figures.

Numeracy

The children are developing their calculation strategies. We have looked at place value, addition and subtraction strategies and shape. The children are focusing on becoming independent in choosing the equipment needed to solve problems. Also this term the children will solve word problems and a range of puzzles which will develop their mathematical reasoning. Once a week we have a problem solving activity which relates to real life contexts and open-ended problems. In these lessons we encourage the children to use and apply their knowledge of number facts and times tables, along with the calculation strategies they have learnt during maths. Twice a week the children are tested on their mathematical fluency with a speed tables challenge; ask your child for information on their stage.

Reading

Guided reading has started well in Beech class with a focus on deduction and inference in the children’s activities. We also focused on Roald Dahl during Roald Dahl day creating a poster about his finest work. We are keen to develop a reading culture in the classroom with the children reading for pleasure as well as responding to texts creatively on a daily basis. Our class reader is The Island of Adventure by Enid Blyton.

Other Subjects

Our topic this half term is Enid Blyton. The children will be researching Enid Blyton in computing, creating a musical composition to celebrate her work using a range of percussion, and developing a piece of collage work inspired by a bygone age in Britain.
