In Maths, we are looking at... 

Addition and subtraction

We have been looking at different ways to add and subtract. We have used a range of models and resources to help us to understand how adding increases an amount but subtraction reduces it

Our Geography topic for this half term is....

Our Local Area

We are looking forward to finding out about where we live. We will be looking into what builds up the United Kingdom and its capitals. We will also be exploring geographical features of our local area to identify human and physical features.

This week we completed some fieldwork observations of our school grounds and recorded the different features we identified. We will then use these to identify which features are human geographical features and which are physical features.

Our Science Topic this half term is...

Animals including Humans

We will be identifying and classifying different animals and looking at how these can be grouped. We will also be investigating using our senses.

In Literacy we are looking at...
