English

We will be starting a new writing unit based on the book 'Manfish' by Jennifer Berne. We will be writing a narrative and a biography.  

Maths

Our maths work this term will follow the White Rose scheme of learning, we will be continuing to look at time, statistics and shapes.

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 Summer 2.
