AUTUMN term

Maths

We will begin by assessing the children in arithmetic and multiplication, to determine what support each child needs.

Our focus this term will be UNDERSTANDING PLACE VALUE. Children will become fluent in the order and place value of numbers beyond 1000, and count in multiples of 10, 100 and 1000 from any given number.

In October, we will move to solving addition and subtraction problems in different contexts, and use inverse to check our answers.

We will also explore 'RAPACODANUMBO' to help us solve arithmetic problems in different ways.

English

4L's Guided Reading book is 'Stone Age Boy'. Our class reading book is Varjak Paw by S.F Said.
