In English we will be continuing to work at individual and differentiated levels of learning for example learning the sounds related to individual phonics levels, reading decodable words and practising blending for reading and high frequency words and the tricky words for reading levels. We will be learning about and using adverbs as well as recognising and using common nouns, using adjectives and expanded noun phrases and answer comprehension questions about a text. In grammar we will be focusing on using capital letters for place names and using the regular past tense in reading and writing.  We will practise spelling of two syllable words and reading of captions and sentences. In writing we will be working on writing captions and sentences. Demonstrate that meaning can be conveyed by marks, symbols, signs or words by showing an awareness that marks and symbols can have meaning and with support, using own symbols, signs or words to label particular objects.

In Maths we will be learning how to divide two-digit whole numbers by single-digit whole numbers and express remainders and show that we understand that division is repeated subtraction as well as understanding and using the vocabulary of division, understand there are different strategies for division understand division is the inverse of multiplication. Add numbers which total up to 20, and subtract numbers from numbers up to 20, making sure we know the symbols + and = .  Some of the students will be working on engaging with the world around you with learning about sequence and pattern for example when prompted, taking turns during a shared activity (e.g. rolling a ball back to a partner, passing on an object) or by responding to an object or sensory cue in relation to a sequence (e.g. sitting down to eat when food is seen, showing readiness for an activity when associated music is played). Identify and recognise common 2-D and 3-D shapes, including circle, cube, rectangle (including square) and triangle and recognise and name 2-D and 3-D shapes, including pentagons, hexagons, cylinders, cuboids, pyramids and spheres. Read and draw simple charts and diagrams, including a tally chart, block diagram/graph and we will be learning to take information from one format and represent the information in another format, including use of bar charts.

In science we will be focusing on chemistry and we will compare different kinds of rocks based on their appearance in the context of understanding the difference between natural and human-made rocks.  We will group together different kinds of rocks on the basis of their simple physical properties in the context of natural rocks and we will work on making systematic and careful observations by examining different types of rocks. We will then describe in simple terms how fossils are formed when things that have lived are trapped within rock by explaining the fossilisation process and by comparing fossils to the animals they belong to. We have borrowed a lovely resource from Dorking museum to help bring this topic alive so we will be looking at some real fossils in school.

In PSHE our focus will be on Changing society and me where we will be working on identifying some of the changes in society that will affect us discussing the emotional impact societal change can have on young people and assessing the role of media, including social media on social change as well as understanding that change is inevitable and have strategies to manage feelings about this. We will list changes that we may have made that we are proud of and help to understand the type of decision-maker we are as well as discuss the impact of the range of changes families can experience and their impact on children and their parents/family and then reflect on how I have managed the changes we have faced. We will cover that in animals and humans lots of changes happen from birth to fully grown, and that usually it is the female who has the baby. Some will be working on their skills to engage with the world around them in regards to people and friendships by consistently co-operating with a friend during an event (e.g. being proactive, joining in during the activity, reaching for items, responding to the other person)

In ICT we will be working on using and applying our skills through using technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content in the context of using word processing skills to open a file, edit and save work, using a paint software. Gain information through ICT or active exploration of technological objects over an extended period.

In art we will be working on an art project of my worn choice that reflects my own interests.

We will be continuing some work with the National trust continuing in the garden, swimming and planning a whole day trip to the seaside.
