This term we will begin by focusing on explanation texts for two weeks. We will be learning all about what features an explanation needs and writing our own explanations. After that, we will have four weeks looking at poems. This is a fantastic topic full of exciting activities such as listening to and sharing poems, acting out well known poems and writing our own poems in the style of different poets.
This term in Maths our topic is addition and subtraction. We will be focusing on adding and subtracting 10, using inverse to check calculations, adding and subtracting within 20, finding missing numbers and adding and subtracting two two digit numbers.
Please keep up with practising the half termly KIRFS. The first set was number bonds to 20 and the ones for this term are the two times table.
Our focus this year is to learn the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times table and if you could practise these at home that would be great. We have just learnt the 3 times table too and have been using some great YouTube videos by Percy Parker to help us. You might want to take a look at these at home to help with practising these times tables. We are also using the conker maths website which has a lot great resources to support your child in developing their number skills. http://www.conkermaths.org/cmweb.nsf/products/conkerkirfs.html
