In English, we are studying mystery narratives. We will be looking at: setting descriptions, narrative retellings, non-chronological reports, letters, diary entries, dialogue, atmospheric descriptions, captions and titles.


In Maths we are looking at length and perimeter. We will also be looking at fractions. 


Miss Schofield/ Mrs Cavanagh read 1:1 with children every day. We also take part in a shared reading lesson every day and Mrs Cavanagh provides phonics lessons during this time. We look at different text types in more detail, following the VIPERS structure. To develop our love of reading we enjoy choosing books to read for pleasure from our class library. Our favourites include titles by Michael Bond, Roald Dahl and Dick King Smith.

This half term we will be reading : A Bear Called Paddington by Michael Bond
