Our English text this term is The Viewer by Gary Crew and Shaun Tan. We will be using our skills of inference to draw meaning from the detailed illustrations in the text and make informed predictions.
Maths: Place value
This term our focus is Place Value. To help reinforce the understanding, we encourage the use of partitioning numbers into hundreds, tens and ones, using different methods. This vital skill of understanding number impacts on all Maths learning over the year. We will develop using the column method for addition and subtraction of two- and three-digit numbers.
Theme: The Ancient Maya Civilisation
This term we will be learning about The Ancient Maya Civilisation. The children will learn who the ancient Maya people were and where and when they lived. They will use maps and atlases to locate Maya cities and identify countries in Mesoamerica. They will discover the religious beliefs and rituals of the ancient Maya people and find out more about some of the many gods they worshipped.
Our Science topic this term is 'sound'. We will work scientifically to explore and discover how sound is made and how distance affects the volume and the quality of what we can hear. We will explore how we can change and vary pitch and even work out our own hearing age!

Home Learning is given out on a Thursday and is due in on a Tuesday. The activity sheet is stuck into your child's home learning book. It is an expectation that all children complete the tasks set within this time.
All of the children will have their PE lessons on Wednesdays and Thursdays. However, sometimes plans change, so we would ask that children have their PE kit in school every day please. For the colder months this can include jogging bottoms.
Please make sure your child’s water bottle is in school every day and that their name is written clearly on the bottle. Please provide children with a SOFT pencil case containing: 2x glue stick, 2x pencils, 2x handwriting pens, 2x pink biros ,2x purple biros,2x green biros, 2x whiteboard pens, a few coloured pens or pencils, and sharpener.
