Summer Term 1
For the first few weeks of this half term, we are going to focus on writing instructions, using Neil Gaiman's 'Instructions' book. We are going to look at what instructions are, using imperative (bossy) verbs when writing instructions and at the end of this unit we are going to be writing our own instructions on how to travel through Fairyland!
During this half term, we are going to look at properties of shapes. We are going to look at different types of 2D and 3D shapes, count the sides, edges, vertices and faces of both 2D and 3D shapes, as well as learning about lines of symmetry.
Towards the end of this term, we are going to focus on fractions. We are going to understand what a whole, half, quarter and a third is, and to find these in a number.
Here are some videos which will help support your child learning fractions at home.
The document below explains how we will teach the children how to add, subtract, multiply and divide so you can support your child at home.
