Overview of Learning

This week, we have been helping the aliens that visited us by designing spaceships for them to use in order for them to return home. As we approach the end of our topic, we will focus on information books and in particular, non-fiction books about our planets and the solar system. As a challenge, we will provide the children with a mnemonic to help them remember the planets in order. We will also look at the differences between the planets and how they change in relation to their distance from the sun. 

Next week in maths, we will be exploring subtraction. We will be introducing this concept in a very practical way with the children physically taking away objects to work out the answers. We will use key vocabulary such as ‘fewer’ and ‘less’ and focussing on what happens to numbers when we subtract.
