In Maths, we will be measuring length and height in centimetres and metres, comparing and ordering lengths and heights, and solving word problems about lengths and heights using all four operations. We will then be moving onto our unit on mass, capacity and temperature. We will learn how to measure in grams and kilograms, how to compare volume and capacity, and how to measure in millilitres and litres. We will also measure temperature using a thermometer.
In English, we will be using what we have learnt about owls whilst reading ‘The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark’ by Jill Tomlinson, to write an informative, non-chronological report.
