A Toy's Story
Theme Learning Question:
What toys did my grandparents play with?
In maths we will begin to explore the operation of subtraction. We will use equipment and mathematical models (eg. part-whole models, ten frames and number lines) to help us understand and record subtraction number sentences. We will look at the link between addition and subtraction by writing fact-families. At the end of the term we will learn about different 2D and 3D shapes.
In English we will continue to use the Read Write Inc Scheme. Our daily phonics lessons are now introducing the set 3 sounds while continuing to review set 2. The children are progressing well and are using the purple Read Write Inc books. Please note that this colour does not correspond to the colour of the reading book your child brings home.
In History we are learning about events within living memory by investigating how toys have changed in the past 70 years. We will be looking at similarities and differences and thinking about possible reasons for these. In Science we are learning the names of common materials and their associated properties.
In RE our Christian value is trust. We will also be learning more about the festival of Diwali and then discussing why Christmas is important to Christians around the world.
