Welcome to Olive Class

During the Autumn term, we will be focusing on place value, all of the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) and Statistics in Maths, including problem solving. The children will work on their individual Maths and English targets ensuring they are making excellent progress. In English will be working on Fiction. We will be using the text 'There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom' as a stimulus. Olive Class will complete a series of reading, writing and speaking activties based on this, as well as working on a range of grammar and spelling skills. In Science we will focus on Earth and Space, the children will have the chance to learn new knowledge as well as observe over time and conduct their own reserach to answer scientific questions. Our History focus this term will be the Romans. If you want to get a head start with your topic work, then click the Roman image.

 This half term we will be looking at Fiction Texts. We will use the book 'There's a Boy in a Girls' Bathroom' to enhance learning, along with teaching the skills that are needed for the children to independently write their own amazing fiction stories.

The children will also get the chance to write for a purpose, as they will be sending their finished pieces to a real author.

The children will continue to learn a range of grammar skills. This half term they will focus on coordinating and subornating conjunctions, relatives clauses and expanded noun phrases.
