In term 1 we will be reading "The Egyptian Cinderella" by Shirley Climo, which is an alternative version of the original fairytale set in Ancient Egypt.
In term 2 we will be reading 'Who Let the Gods Out?' by Maz Evans, which is an action packed adventure all about the Greek Gods.
Both texts will provide a multitude of opportunities to explore various writing skills and reading skills. We will be following "The Write Stuff" approach to writing - please feel free to ask for more information :)
We'll also be exploring related non-fiction and poetry. Through whole class reading lessons we will explore the skills of vocabulary, inference, prediction, explaining and summarising. It's going to be an exciting term!
We will be covering the following objectives:
- Place value – numbers up to millions
- Addition and subtraction – mental and written methods for large numbers
- Statistics: line graphs, tables and timetables
- Multiplication and Division – factors, prime numbers, square and cube numbers and multiplying and dividing by 10,100 and 1000.
- Measurement – measuring and calculating perimeter and area of rectangles
Maths Planets will be completed every Friday. Practise sheets and overviews are available on the Maths Planets page.

Children need to continue learning for their maths planets; alongside continued practice of times table and related division facts. Maths Planets will be tested each Friday and multiplication grids will be completed throughout the week.
We ask that you read' with your child 5 times a week. This only needs to be a 10 minute session and you don’t have to finish a whole book every time. We will be continuing with our ‘Reading Challenge’, so make sure you record each read in their log book as this will contribute.
Reading does not have to be limited to the books children bring home from school. It can include any books they have at home, reads with siblings or reading books from the local library.
Spelling: Children are given a list of spellings at the start of each term, which will be tested each week. These spellings are in their homework book - a copy can be found here as well:
