We will be starting a new writing unit based on the book 'Arthur and the Golden Rope' by Joe Todd-Stanton. We will be writing a myth narrative and an instruction guide.


Our maths work this half term will follow the White Rose scheme of learning, we will be looking at multiplication, division and area.

To help develop children’s fluency in mathematics, we also ask each child to learn Key Instant Recall Facts each half term. We expect children to practise their KIRFs as part of their homework. Please work on the KIRFs for Spring 1.
