WHAT ARE WE LEARNING ABOUT?
In Maths, this half term, the children will begin with Place Value. This is an important unit to support other areas of learning in Maths. The children will break down numbers to understand where they fit in the number system, how they can be made of tens and ones, and how they are read and written correctly.
From here, the children will move onto addition and subtraction. As a class, we will revise number bonds to 20, which then lead to supporting children's addition and subtraction facts to 100. The class will learn how to find related facts and spot patterns.
Next, the children will work on measures in particular length/height and mass. WE will start by using comparative language, build on to measuring with non-standard units and the progress to measuring with the standard units of centimetres and metres ang grams and kilograms.
Finally, we will work on 2D and 3D shapes ensuring that the children can confidently name and identify their properties including finding a line of symmetry in a vertical line.
