In Maths we will:

  • count in steps of 2, 3 and 5 from 0 and in tens from any number, forward and backward

  • use place value and number facts to solve problems


We will begin our new topic People of the Past. History is one big story, filled with important people who did many great things - scientists, rulers, artist, writers, explorers.

By learning about these people and what they did, we can find out more about the qualities that make someone great.

In History, we will be:

  • Exploring the decisions that rulers had to make in the past
  • Finding out about a famous explorer using maps and role play
  • Finding out about a famous scientist
  • Learning about important inventors and their inventions
