READY, STEADY, GROW!
During the Spring term we will continue to follow our Talk 4 Writing strategies; learning stories through actions, story mapping and retelling our own versions. This term we will be focusing on the story ‘The Queen's Knickers’.
Throughout the Spring term we will be focusing on accurate sentence structure, using punctuation correctly and developing the use of conjunctions.
There will also be a strong focus on handwriting ensuring that
letters and digits are of the correct size, orientation and
relationship to one another. Please see our cursive handwriting style below:

Throughout the Spring Term, children will be focusing on their understanding of multiplication and division. We will be learning our 2, 5 and 10 times tables and looking at the related division facts for these. Children will continue to develop their reasoning skills where examples of the different style questions can be found overleaf. Please encourage your child to use Times Tables Rockstars as much as possible as this will really support their learning in school.
During our curriculum time we are learning about things that grow. From plants to animals and humans, we will explore life cycles and understand how we can protect and support the development of life.
We will be learning how different animals grow and what is needed to promote a healthy lifestyle. We look forward to finding out about different animals from around the world to link with our geography learning about the different continents.
