This term part of our English work will be centred around the texts ‘The Owl Babies’.
This links to our topic of 'Who's Afraid of the Dark?'
The children will be story mapping and innovating ‘The Owl Babies’ so that they can write their own nocturnal animal stories. We will also focus on using the simple noun phrases and adding conjunctions (so, or, because, and, but).
Later in the term, the children will also be creating a non-chronological report on a nocturnal animal of their choice.
Drawing upon the information from our Science topic and researching a range of texts, the children will chose a range of features to include.
Over this term, the children will revisit and develop their knowledge of the number system by reading, writing, and comparing numbers to 100 and beyond. They will explore patterns in number from counting in 2s, 3s, 5s, and 10s and talk about the number patterns they see. They will count forwards and backwards in 10s from any given number. They will use mathematical resources to make mathematical patterns and recognise odd and even numbers. The children will also revisit and develop their knowledge and reasoning of place value.
