Spring 2 Learning
This half term in English we will be learning how to write persuasive letters and adventure stories. These will be based on our class book which is The Boy with the Bronze Axe. We will also be reading Stone Age Boy, Wolf Brother and Ug: The Genius Boy of the Stone Age.
In persuasive writing, we will learn how to use powerful vocabulary to form our arguments.
In our adventure stories, we will learn to use descriptive and exciting vocabulary to entertain our reader. We will also be learning to punctuate speech and will be writing a dialogue between two characters.
The spellings we will be learning this half term are:
appear, believe, caught
century, eight, eighth
enough, favourite, learn
guard, pressure, reign
therefore, though, although
thought, through, weight
In maths this half term we will be continuing to learn how to multiply 2 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers. We will also be learning how to divide 2 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers.
We will then learn how to read and create pictographs and bar graphs. This will coincide with census week which is the week commencing 22.3.21.
Please keep practising your TT rockstars at home so you can become quick at recalling multiplication facts!
