English

This half term in English, we are reading 'A Series of Unfortunate Events' by Lemony Snicket.

There is nothing to be found in the pages of A Series of Unfortunate Events but misery and despair. You still have time to choose another international best-seller to read. But if you must know what unpleasantries befall the charming and clever Baudelaire children read on...

In The Bad Beginning the three youngsters encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune and cold porridge for breakfast. Then again, why trouble yourself with the unfortunate resolutions?

Maths

To begin the year we will be looking at the place value of numbers, working with numbers up to 1,000,000. This will include using different apparatus and pictorial representations before working with more abstract problems. 

We will then progress to addition, subtraction and multiplication and division after half-term. 

Throughout all lessons, we continuously work on improving our fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills in order to secure and deepen our understanding of different concepts. 


We will be practising times-tables on a daily basis. If your child is fluent with times-tables (including related division facts) please extend them by multiplying by powers of 10. For example: 8 x 7 = 56 or 8 x 70 = 560
