Our topic this half term focuses on Dinosaurs – we will be using it in a range of cross curricular areas in our learning, as well as inspiration for our writing.


This half term we are writing to entertain, and will be drafting and editing a range of texts including descriptions, poems and stories. To do this, we will also be learning to use adjectives, exclamation sentences and questions in our writing.


We will be doing a lot of music this term – Creating music that fits with our dinosaur topic. We will be
working with a specialist music teacher Miss Lee.



We will be concentrating on place value and number this half term. We will be learning to read and write numbers, order numbers (greater and less than), partition numbers (hundreds,tens and ones) and addition and subtraction.
