In the summer term, after meandering through the world of rivers, we will be discovering a fantastical world full of mythical creatures and legendary heroes. We will end the term learning about some of history’s greats and infamous villains! These engaging topics will enable the children to develop key knowledge and skills in all subjects through a cross curricular, imaginative learning approach.
In maths, we are enjoying the ‘Maths No Problem’ scheme. This approach builds children’s mathematical skills alongside their thinking, reasoning and problem-solving skills. There are many parts to our lessons, allowing time for children to explore, discuss and develop a range of methods to solve questions and achieve a greater depth of mathematical understanding. We will also continue to practise our times tables to help prepare us for the new times table test in Year 4!
English will be taught using a range of stimulating and topic-based texts. Reading and studying various genres, including poetry, fiction and non-fiction books, will support children in developing their imagination and creativity in writing. Handwriting is also a big focus for us this year in order to develop our confidence and fluency in class.
