Welcome back! We hope you had a fantastic half term break and are now feeling ready for a festive half term!
This term we are continuing with the topic Tower Tunnels and Turrets. See the castle ahead? Get ready to invade its mighty walls. Shoot a projectile with an archer’s aim. Head across the drawbridge, over the moat and up to the top of the tower. Meet Rapunzel who lives in a tall, tall tower. Let’s build a brand new one. Whose is the tallest? Can you measure it? Then dig deep, deep down, making burrows and tunnels, just like the animals who live underground. What’s that sound? I hear little hooves going trip, trap, trip, trap, over the rickety bridge. Watch out for the angry troll underneath. He likes to gobble up little girls and boys. Make sure your bridge is sturdy enough to take our weight and get us safely to the other side. And finally, meet three little pigs who need your help to build a strong fortress. Inside its strong walls, they’ll be safe from the big, bad wolf. No huffing and puffing will blow your fortress down.
For this half term in maths, we will be starting off with addition and subtraction and then moving onto common 2D shapes, with some children looking at common 3D shapes. The half term will then end with focus on number and place value to 10 and 20, with some children moving onto numbers to 100.
