Spring Term

Maths

In Maths this half term, we are working on Multiplication and Division. We will begin with Multiplication by identifying equal groups and then using skip counting and arrays. We will also be starting to learn and practise our 2, 5 and 10 times table using these methods. Then we will move onto Division later on in the term where we will be re-capping equal groups and learning how to make equal groups through sharing. Click on the links below and work through each activity. You should aim to do one activity a day to keep those skills simmering!

History

Our History lessons are focussed on Explorers. We will be learning about three different explorers: Christopher Columbus, Neil Armstrong and Mary Seacole. We will be learning about their lives through looking at key dates, how they travelled and explored, the places they travelled and explored, what society was like during their lifetime and important primary and secondary artefacts that teach us about the times when these explorers were alive. You can use the following links to reserach information and create a profile or a poster for each explorer explaining why they are famous and important.
