In the first half term we will be using Gracie the Lighthouse Cat by Ruth Brown to inspire us to write our own innovated stories. We will also be writing diary entries as though we are a ship wreck survivor saved by Grace Darling.
In Maths we will be securing our understanding of the 4 operations, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, using this understanding to solve problems and continuing to develop our knowledge of shape, space and measure including telling the time.
