Maths!

During the Spring term, we will be focusing on the four operations and applying these to multi-step problems. We will have the opportunity to work with a partner to discuss the best approaches to word problems before solving problems independently. There will also be opportunities to draw the problems to support comprehension.

Children will be given morning challenges of White Rose problems of the day to embed their problem solving skills.

Science

This term we are investigating Evolution and Inheritance. We will learn about inherited characteristics and the traits that could be passed down through generations. We will investigate Charles Darwin and his Theory of Evolution.
