Our Topic this half term will be

Life Cycles

Week beginning: 13/5/19

This week we shall be focusing on


Here are some areas we shall be looking at in class this week that you could try at home...


This week in Literacy, we will be learning all about the life cycle of a butterfly. We will be learning about non- fiction texts and creating a fact sheet. To help your child at home you could create a fact sheet about a bean or a chick, you could ask your child what they remember about their own beans and watching them grow


In maths this week, we are re-visiting subtractin of single digit and double digit numbers. The children will be learning to subtract two numbers using a number line.
