Children review their own baking on look, smell and taste.

Jungle Book

Create a story skeleton or hill.

Children describe the story’s characters and the different settings.

Create new characters and new settings for their own version of the story.

Use their setting and character descriptions, story skeleton and plans to write out their new version of their story.

Children study and write a letter related to the story.

 

MATHS

Number – Place value

Count in steps of 2, 3 and 5 from 0 and in tens from any number, forward and backward.

Recognise the place value of each digit in a two digit number (tens, ones)

Identify, represent and estimate numbers to 100 using different representations including the number line.

Compare and order numbers from 0 to 100; use <, > and = signs.

Read and write numbers to at least 100 in numerals and words.

Use place value and number facts to solve problems.

Number – fractions

Recognise, find, name and write fractions  1/3, 1/4, 2/4 and 3/4 of a length, shape, set of objects or quantity.

 Write simple fractions for example, 1/2 of 6 = 3 and recognise the equivalence of 2/4 and 1/2.

Measurement: length and height

Choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure length/height in any direction (m/cm); mass (kg/g); temperature (°C); capacity (litres/ml) to the nearest appropriate unit, using rulers, scales, thermometers and measuring vessels. 

Compare and order lengths, mass, volume/capacity and record the results using >, < and =.

Statistic

Children deepen their understanding on how to collect data, demonstrate data, create a bar graph and be able to respond to questions about data.

 

SCIENCE

Living things and their habitats - Rainforest

Investigate and explore the rainforest.

Identify that most living things live in habitats to which they are suited and describe how different habitats provide for the basic needs of different kinds of animals and plants and how they depend on each other.
