Our curriculum Spring 1
This half term we will be focussing on multiplication and division. Within this unit we will be exploring the multiplication and division facts within the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. Then, we will practise using concrete, pictorial and abstract methods to multiply and divide 2 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers. We will be applying our learning with problem solving and reasoning throughout the unit.
This half term, we are focussing on non-chronological reports. Children will explore the features of non-chronological reports using our example text ‘Mount Etna’. We will focus on using past/present tense accurately and co-ordinating/subordinating conjunctions. They will then plan, write and edit their own non-chronological report about Mount Vesuvius.
This half term the children will explore the features and characteristics of the Earth’s layers as part of our topic Rocks, Relics and Rumbles. We will be learning about how volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis are caused and the impact these events have on the surrounding areas.
