In English, we will be looking at the past and present tense. The children will discuss how verbs change depending on their relationship to time. They will be encouraged to recognise the past and present tense.

Key Focus: past tense, present tense, adjectives, verbs, conjunctions, punctuation marks



In Mathematics, the children will explore money. The key objectives will be to recognise and know the value of different denominations and notes. They will practice giving and receiving money through role play activities.

Key vocabulary: money, denominations, value, coins, notes and amount



Next week, the learning goal we will be exploring will be ‘Communication.’ The Beatles song that will be used as our stimulus will be ‘Dear Mr. Postman.’

The focus artist will be ‘Lichtenstein.’ The children will try to recreate his style of pop art by creating their own self-portraits.
