Willow Class

Welcome to our Willow Class page. This is where we will share our news and topics for this year!

Autumn 2020:

Reading

Our reading and books this term will be linked to our topic ‘Tremendous Transport’. The books will include:

Oi! Get off our train, Emma Jane’s aeroplane and The hundred decker bus.

We will be focusing on vocabulary, inference, prediction, explanation, retrieval and sequencing.

Writing

Our writing this term will be based on the book ‘Naughty Bus’ and we will be focusing on writing our own stories. We will be recapping the importance of punctuation by looking at capital letters, full stops and questions marks. We will also be exploring a range of vocabulary and planning our stories before we write them. Another key skill that we will be focusing on is the ability to reread our work to be sure that it makes sense.

Maths

In maths we will be focusing on place value and looking at numbers up to 100. We will be looking closely at ways that we can represent numbers, comparing and ordering numbers and finally moving on to counting in 2s, 5s, 10s and 3s.

Later in the term we will look at addition and subtraction strategies.
