This Term's Learning



This term our topic is

'Grow Your Own Way' (we hope you like what we did there!) We will be focussing on all aspects of growing - from plants, to food, to humans! An exciting topic that children will THRIVE in!

In English we are currently learning how to write in paragraphs. We will be using this skill to write recounts of our Christmas holidays.

In maths our focus is rounding up and down. Work is differentiated to support children at different stages of their learning - some children are rounding to the nearest 10 (but thinking about this with larger numbers, up to 4 digits) and others are rounding to the nearest 100 or 1000. We will be challenging children to solve word problems involving this skill.
