In maths, we learn a variety of skills including: place value; addition and subtraction; multiplication and division; fractions and many more. In maths, we place a great emphasis on developing reasoning and problem-solving skills.
In English, we develop both our writing and reading skills. Some of the skills we will learn this year include using brackets and hyphens, using modal verbs and relative clauses. To develop our reading and writing, we complete several book studies across the year including Tom’s Midnight Garden and Kensuke’s Kingdom.
We take a thematic approach to learning in foundation subjects to ensure children are able to make meaningful links between their learning and the world around them. Some of the topics we will study this year are Alchemy Island, Stargazers and Allotment. Through these topics, we develop a range of skills from map reading in geography to designing fair tests in science.
