Welcome to the Summer Term 1 Hermit Crabs, Pufferfish and Seahorses!
Time to get outside into the sunshine and find as many creepy crawlies as possible! We are very excited about this topic because you will each receive your very own mini-beast to look after. As scientists, we will be identifying these fascinating little creatures and we are sure you will be insect experts in no time.
ENGLISHAs writers, we will start the term by creating some creative poetry. Can you find some creepy crawly poems to share with your class? Then you will be writing information leaflets about your favourite creatures.
As mathematicians we will be exploring place value, in particular the relationship between fractions and decimal. Understanding decimals will help us to solve money and measuring problems.
We will continue to deepen our understanding of time. There are lots of games on this website to help you practise telling the time:
This term we will also focus on learning our 3,4,6,7, 8 and 9 times tables and related division facts. Our aim is to complete 30 questions in 4 minutes. Time to get your skates on! Here is a useful website to practise your times tables:http://www.timestables.me.uk/
We have spellings to learn each week. Here are the spellings for Summer 1.
