Autumn Term 2

Ahoy there my Matey!



We will be using the text 'A New Home for a Pirate' as our focus for English.  We will write a new ending for the story and learn how to write instructions for building a pirate ship.



Number: Addition and Subtraction

This half-term we will be focusing on adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers.  We will complete problem solving tasks involving money and begin to work on multiplying including the 2, 5 and 10 times tables.


Science: Materials

The first topic focuses on Materials looking at how different materials are suitable for different purposes.  We will be making boats on 'Pirate Day' and thinking about the materials we use and why they make a good boat.


Topic: History

We will be busy this term putting together a fantastic performance for Christmas so our topic lessons will look at the history of how Christmas was celebrated in the Victorian times.
